Webinar Series: Air Quality Compliance for Chemical Sector Area Sources - Part 1: Regulatory Overview

Air quality compliance for chemical manufacturing facilities has always been a complicated endeavor. Large chemical facilities are subject to complex federal regulations and have been a key focus area for EPA enforcement for over a decade. Smaller sources that are HAP and Title V minor sources have been subject to less scrutiny over that time. However, their complexity for compliance can be just as great, as the need to maintain a detailed facility-wide emissions inventory below major source thresholds and evaluate process changes and new products for NSPS and area source NESHAP applicability can place significant burden on environmental staff who, unlike their large facility counterparts, are often charged with managing multiple regulatory programs. This webinar series focuses on important air quality compliance topics for these smaller chemical operations.

Trinity is presenting a series of webinar focusing on air quality compliance topics for smaller chemical operations. Over a month period, Trinity will present 3 separate 2.5 hour webinars covering several related topics.

    Refinery Sector Rule Workshop

    On September 29, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated its final Petroleum Refinery Sector Risk and Technology Review (the Refinery Sector Rule), thus fulfilling EPA's obligations to evaluate residual risks and technological developments under sections 112(f) and 112(d)(6) of the Clean Air Act for the petroleum refinery NESHAPs, 40 CFR 63 Subparts CC and UUU. Certain requirements under this rulemaking became effective on February 1, 2016. This half day workshop will provide a summary of the key new requirements under the Refinery Sector Rule and will highlight the currently outstanding issues and ambiguities as well as the likely path forward for anticipated further rulemaking. Trinity will provide suggested best practices for conducting gap assessments and planning compliance/implementation strategies based on our experience across the refining industry. Come prepared with your questions and concerns and let us help you fine-tune your strategies.
