Going forward, companies in and around “the Steel City” and the “Mile High City” will enjoy increased environmental support and resources in the shape of new Trinity offices.
On Jan. 1, Tom Muscenti, PE, a Managing Consultant with nearly a decade of experience in Trinity’s Charlotte office, opened the firm’s Pittsburgh office. Tom and his team are supporting highly regulated facilities in industries such as steel manufacturing, food processing, portland cement, aggregates, oil & gas, electricity generation, chemicals, and other manufacturing operations. Most recently, Trinity has assisted Pennsylvania facilities with issues such as the following:
- NSR/PSD permitting support for clients in the lime, steel, and glass manufacturing industries
- NSR permitting activities, noise analyses, FERC Resource Report 9 preparation, engine NSPS and MACT compliance, and greenhouse gas reporting for oil and gas companies
- Assessing applicability of EPA’s proposed new Boiler MACT and CISWI rules for several industries
- Evaluating the impact of the new 1-hour SO2 NAAQS
The Pittsburgh staff will host a complementary luncheon on March 22 in Pittsburgh entitled, “Living with EOA’s Air Quality Regulations for Engines – RICE MACT & NSPS.”
Companies in the Rocky Mountain region will be served by a new Denver office that opened March 1. Principal Consultant Rob Liles will oversee the new office along with Trinity’s other southwestern offices in Dallas, Austin, and Albuquerque. Recent assistance provided to area clients includes:
- New Source Review (NSR) and Title V permitting and compliance support for a Colorado refinery
- Ongoing regulatory applicability and permitting assistance for rail yards located in Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska
- Permitting and compliance assistance for area oil and gas operators including E&P, midstream, gas processing, transmission, and distribution
- Ongoing compliance assistance for numerous electric generating facilities in the region
Area environmental professionals can attend the one day course, “Air Permitting in Colorado” on April 12.
