From Air Quality Services
An analysis of air emission control devices, called a Best Available Control Technology (BACT) analysis, is required for most air permit applications. Through continuous review of pertinent literature, frequent contact with equipment suppliers and by use of the EPA 'BACT Clearinghouse', the environmental consultants with engineering degrees and other specialists at Source maintain up-to-date knowledge of the operations, costs and efficiency of all currently available air emission control equipment. The Source environmental consultants and scientists pride themselves on being ahead of other consultants and environmental agency personnel in their knowledge of new developments in air emission control technologies. Other engineering and consulting firms often use Source consultants with engineering degrees to prepare the BACT portion of their air permit applications.
