Air Quality Management

Whether constructing a new industrial facility, expanding an existing facility, or modifying operations, owners and operators may be subject to air quality permitting requirements. Industrial sources must be designed, constructed, and operated to comply with all applicable air quality regulations. Air quality regulations exist within a range of permitting programs, including state and local codes, and federal programs such as New Source Review and the Title V operating permit program. Current air regulations affect how you do business – in some cases even attempting to dictate products you can make or raw materials you can use, manufacturing process, production rates, and facility operation time and frequency. Unfortunately, compliance with existing and new air rules is often a significant cost of doing business.

  • New Source Review - The federal New Source Review (NSR) program requires that new and modified major sources undergo rigorous air quality analyses and receive a permit prior to beginning construction on any physical changes or changes in the method of operation.
  • Title V & state air permits including full supporting calculations - Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments required states to develop a federally enforceable operating permit program for significant sources of air emissions, as defined by certain annual threshold levels. Subject sources are required to submit permit renewal applications once every five years to update regulatory applicability and incorporate changes at the facility.

Stratus has prepared several initial Title V operating permit applications, permit renewal applications, and permit modification applications. Stratus assists clients in developing Title V permit applications that increase operational flexibility while reducing monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements. Our experience in preparing permit modification applications allows stratus to bring unique site specific insight to each project and develop the most beneficial strategies based on client needs.
