Environmental Permitting News

There is no question that certain types of permits and programs must be obtained to operate a large manufacturing business.   It can be confusing trying to understand which permits and programs are right for your facility.  The best way to know which permit is right for you is to hire a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) or a Certified Safety Professional (CSP).

EPA has an extensive history, but one of the main differences between OSHA and the EPA is that a majority of their permits come from Congressional acts.  The Clean Air Act is one of the big permitting acts of the EPA.  They derive a lot of their permits from this act.  One of the permits from this act has recently been upheld in the judiciary system.

It has been ruled that the GHG or Greenhouse Gas, threshold will not change.  The ruling basically states that any new facilities that plan on emitting GHG, they must obtain a Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permit if they will be emitting more than 100,000 tons per year (tpy) in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) gases.  This new ruling is supposedly going to help facilities emitting GHG as these standards are fairly close to local and state regulations.  The EPA’s website has a full review of the new permitting rules; it also covers the requirements for existing facilities.

The rule was established in May of 2012 and since it was enacted the EPA has already issued 44 permits.  How do you know if your facility needs a new PSD permit or not?  Calling an environmental, health, and safety firm to come and perform an environmental audit of your facility is the best way to make that determination.  IF your facility is required to have a PSD then know that the EPA is encouraging plant owners to fix any issues with their GHG emissions in as green a way as possible.

In addition to waste management, storm water pollution prevention, and clean air the EPA has a lot of requirements.  It takes diligence and work and a desire to want to address all these needs so that your facility can leave a positive mark on our planet.  These permits are fairly easy to acquire and there is a professional ready, willing, and able to help walk you through the process.
