Chemical Manufacturing


Area Source Webinar Series: Deviations Reporting and Effective MOC

Beat the heat with Trinity’s Summer Webinar Series for Chemical Manufacturing Area Sources. Large chemical facilities have always been a key focus area for EPA enforcement, but area sources have also started to receive increased scrutiny. This scrutiny is coupled with regulatory complexity that can be just as great as for larger sources, placing a heavy burden on environmental staff often working solo to stay afloat while managing multiple regulatory programs. To help, this webinar series will focus on often overlooked air quality compliance areas that may be in need of a little TLC at your facility. While these sessions will be geared towards area sources, they can also serve staff at major sources looking to brush up on the basics.

Each webinar will be 1.5 hours, including time for Q&A. Feel free to sign up for individual sessions that peak you interest or register for all 4 for a special discount.
