The U.S. EPA has completed its mandated development of the vast majority of the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Emissions Guidelines (EG) in 40 CFR 60 and the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) in 40 CFR 61 and 40 CFR 63 (“MACT standards”). Trinity has tracked these regulations from their genesis in the 1970 Clean Air Act (CAA) and the CAA Amendments of 1977 and 1990. Trinity has an extensive history of providing industry with related compliance assistance such as applicability determinations, compliance plan development, development of testing and monitoring programs, and more.
Additionally, Trinity monitors the ongoing development and promulgation of new NSPS and NESHAP rules. Trinity has partnered with companies and trade organizations to prepare rule development surveys, comment on EPA’s proposals, and analyze the surveyed actual emissions data from which Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards are developed.
Today, equipment in nearly every facility in the U.S. is affected by one or more NSPS/EG or NESHAP rules. The requirements in these rules are often the first area of consideration in many air permitting studies. With more than four decades of experience in air regulations and permitting, Trinity can be of great value in helping you interpret EPA’s rulemaking information and determine effective compliance solutions for your operations.
