Successful and timely business growth requires effective regulatory planning and permitting. A misunderstanding of the vast array of air quality regulations can put a stranglehold on a company’s plans to modify or expand its facility. JBR personnel monitor federal, state and county rulemaking processes through on-line and subscription services to evaluate the potential impact of proposed regulations on our clients. This provides effective planning for complying with new requirements prior to final rulemaking.
JBR’s knowledge of federal and local air quality regulations allows development of strategies that minimize lengthy and cumbersome permit processes. Our planning and permitting services include:
Integrating regulatory experience and various levels of technical support allows JBR to offer efficient and cost effective permitting services for new sources and modifications to existing sources. JBR prepares air quality permit applications and related evaluations for:
Some changes to existing sources may be exempt from permitting or may only require submittal of a notification to the permitting agency. JBR has the expertise and understanding of the federal and state regulations necessary to make these demonstrations and to assist you in preparing the proper notifications to ensure continued compliance.
JBR uses standard emission factors available in the literature and from application of basic scientific principles to develop complete emission inventories for anthropogenic and naturally occurring emission sources. For very complex processes where emission factors do not apply, JBR has designed and implemented field testing programs to measure actual emission rates. These procedures have been utilized in preparing applications for a multitude of Title V sources and hundreds of individual air quality permit modifications or revisions.
Data bases and methodologies utilized by AEC to develop emission factors include:
Depending upon the client’s needs, emission inventories are generally prepared using electronic spreadsheets that can subsequently be modified, summarized, or processed for further applications including dispersion modeling analyses.
