1982 - 2006
Bowman Environmental was founded in 1982 by J. Thomas Bowman. From there Dr. Bowman developed the Bee-Line Software products by rewriting the EPA mainframe guideline for air dispersion models and several emergency release models for use on microcomputers.
In addition to developing the most intuitive & user friendly air dispersion modeling software in the industry, Dr. Bowman also established the Bee-Line Training program, which he has been conducting for over 15 years in the United States and around the world. His courses in industrial permit modeling and the use of AerMod & CalPuff software are the foundation for the new EnviroMod University curriculum. The core theory of teaching students a 'hands on' method of air dispersion modeling has established a reputation in the industry as one of the best places to send employees for training.
The main principle that Dr. Bowman invoked in developing a quality modeling management tool is simple and unchanged since the company's founding: Develop a Product for Modelers by Modelers.
2007 - Present
Bowman Environmental & BEE-Line Software became Oris Solutions, LLC in 2007. Dr. Bowman, along with some new partners formed Oris Solutions to protect the legacy that BEE-Line established in the industry and to provide continuity for the next 25 years. In a changing world with challenging new demands for air dispersion modeling software and training, Oris has a hard charged commitment to developing new and effective solutions for today and tomorrow.
In under one year, Oris Solutions has created and begun offering some of the following products and services to the environmental management community.
