AIR PERMIT STRATEGY
Because our staff has prepared hundreds of air permit and permit modification applications over four decades, we are uniquely qualified to understand the regulations, permit process, and permit strategy that will expedite our clients’ permits while minimizing delays.
Spirit Environmental pursues a different strategy in preparing air permit applications from most consulting firms. Each of our staff is a “project manager level” professional, allowing one staffer to be assigned to you and to be completely dedicated to the preparation of the entire permit application. This means your project manager will know all the details of your permit application and will be the sole agency contact. This approach dramatically improves relations with the reviewing agency and saves you valuable time.
The Spirit Environmental staff’s knowledge of the reviewing agencies and our continuing relationships with its personnel are key assets to our clients. We identify the appropriate solutions for our clients’ issues quickly because of these key contacts and our reputation for integrity and professionalism with the reviewing agencies.
CONTROL TECHNOLOGY REVIEW & NEGOTIATION
Spirit Environmental’s staff has performed hundreds of air pollution control technology reviews, or Best Available Control Technology (BACT) reviews. Our contacts with technology leaders ensure that we can quickly obtain current, accurate data from reliable engineering firms and pollution control suppliers. We keep up-to-date on the methods preferred by the reviewing agencies to minimize questions and review times.
Spirit Environmental has developed proven methods to minimize public concern with our clients’ projects. For those rare situations where the public has demanded a hearing in regard to an air permit application, we have successfully presented data and opinions resulting in permit approval. Spirit Environmental has never had an air permit application turned down or denied after assuring a client that a permit could be obtained.
