Regulatory compliance is an important management tool during construction, relocation or expansion, and air pollution issues must be dealt with early on. Warren & Panzer assists clients to prepare and expedite permitting applications for Title V. PSD. NSR and other types of permits. Warren & Panzer has developed permitting strategies and applications for many major projects, and also conducts Best and Reasonable Available Control Technology and Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) demonstration required by federal and state rules.
To help the client meet federal and state air quality regulations, we conduct air compliance audits to evaluate a facility's compliance status and determine which emission sources require air permits or modifications to air pollution control equipment. These valuable tools identify problem areas and prioritize corrective actions, saving costs by preventing fines and avoiding litigation and adverse publicity.
With the current trend of responsible environmental stewardship, facilities nationwide must determine their polluting potential to various medias. Determining air emissions can be complicated, with the potential for regulatory fees or capital expenditures. Before determining any need for Air pollution controls, our engineers estimate emissions of pollutants and toxic and volatile organic compounds from manufacturing , processes, waste disposal facilities and disposal sites. Our dedicated software is a proven, cost-effective tool for estimating emissions and estimating emissions from many process sources.
Using emissions inventory data, we prepare permits, determine major/minor source designation, develop cost-effective compliance strategies, establish air toxics reduction programs, design pollution control systems, report annual emissions and estimate annual emission fees.
We evaluate the impact of air emissions from sources, such as industrial stack, landfills, hazardous waste sites, wastewater treatment plants, construction sites, mobile sources ( cars, trucks, buses, airplanes, etc.) and RCRA treatment, storage and disposal facilities to meet air quality and odor criteria, as well as determining the compliance status of facilities for siting studies , air permit applications, environmental impact statement. health risk assessment, and odor evaluations. Required in the regulatory arena, modeling is a very cost-effective technique for optimizing design and assessing the benefit of alternative control technologies, treatment scenarios and mitigation plans.
