Courtesy of Trinity Consultants

After completing his B.S degree in chemical engineering from North Carolina State University, Joe Sullivan, PE, CM, began his career as a process development engineer in the chemical industry, later working on contract to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Emissions Standards Division assisting in development of federal air quality regulations. For the past 16 years, he has worked as an environmental consultant to industry, developing diverse skills that are proving a valuable resource in Trinity’s Raleigh office. According to Joe, 'Environmental consulting is the perfect fit for me...I love the satisfaction of serving clients and collaborating with colleagues, the fast pace of consulting, and the limitless opportunity to learn and grow professionally.'

Particularly noteworthy is Joe’s experience assisting power companies. Over the past decade, he has managed numerous permitting and compliance-related projects for existing power clients, including many multi-media environmental projects for clients building new power plants. He is experienced at managing multiple resources to provide turn-key environmental assistance including all permitting requirements as well as biological and cultural assessment required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). He also has considerable environmental consulting experience with a number of other industries including chemicals, fertilizers, polymers/fibers, bulk petroleum distribution, wood products, secondary metals, pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, and general manufacturing.

Although Joe has broad environmental knowledge, his primary area of expertise is in air quality. He is an instructor for Trinity’s air quality regulations courses in North and South Carolina as well as the Advanced New Source Review Permitting Workshop. He is also a frequent author and presenter for emerging national and regional air quality developments. Since he joined Trinity in 2007, he has particularly enjoyed the great team atmosphere at Trinity, working together to provide superlative services to our clients.
