NESHAP and NSPS Compliance
NESHAP-NSPSTrinity tracks the ongoing development and promulgation of New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP). NSPS apply to equipment in nearly every facility and are one of the first areas addressed in many permitting studies. With nearly four decades of experience in air regulations and permitting, Trinity can be of great value in helping you determine the applicability of NSPS to your operations.
The new NESHAPs, mandated by Title III, Section 301 of the 1990 CAAA, are technology-based emissions standards for 188 hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects. The original NESHAPs, mandated under the 1970 CAAA, still apply but are limited to a small number of substances. For each new NESHAP (40 CFR 63), EPA is required to define the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standard based on the top performing facilities in that industry. We keep our clients informed about the MACT developments that affect them and work with them to develop effective compliance strategies.
