PHI guides clients through the permit maze to allow timely approvals for new projects. Our experienced consultants assure that all available exemptions are utilized to avoid unnecessary permitting. We work with the authorities to assure that permit terms and conditions are fair, reflect regulatory authority, and maximize future operating flexibility.
Permit Application Development
PHI has the capability to development applications for permits to modify existing facilities, or install and construct new facilities and equipment. We have extensive experience in the following types of permits:
- Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD)
- New Source Review (NSR)
- Title V Operating Permit (or Renewable Operating Permit (ROP) in Michigan )
- State Air Permits (GA, IL, KY, MI, MO, NJ, OH, OK, TN, VA)
Our permit application development draws on information from past permits, alternative operating scenarios, and corrections of potential non-compliance issues.
Support activities for permit applications include emission projections, best available control technology (BACT) demonstrations, lowest achievable emission rate (LAER) demonstrations, dispersion modeling, and toxic air contaminant impact assessments. These activities also include the identification and procurement of emission offsets for sources located in non-attainment areas.
