Emissions inventory of a wastewater treatment plant, air permitting of sources
Keywords: wastewater treatment plant, emissions inventory, air permits
Marc Karell managed and performed a project for the Joint Meeting of Essex & Union Counties, a major wastewater treatment plant in Elizabeth, NJ. Marc reviewed and listed all equipment potentially emitting regulated pollutants and used plant-developed data and recognized techniques to estimate worst-case short-term and annual emissions from each source. Certain equipment (enginators) required stack tests to calculate emissions. Marc managed the effort performed by an experienced testing firm. Once the emissions inventory was finalized, Marc developed New Jersey Subchapter 8 air permit applications for each source that needed one, and followed through with the NJDEP until the permits were issued.
