Air Emissions – Permit Renewal And Compliance

When their existing operating permit was scheduled for expiration, Langan was retained by the owners of a fleet operations facility in Philadelphia, PA to review air regulations applicable to the facility and re-evaluate permitting requirements. Sources at the site included a gasoline storage and dispensing system and paint spray booth with associated volatile material usage. Langan conducted a site inspection to gather air emission source data and general work practices at the facility. Based on the inspection information, Langan determined that the facility needed to obtain a Synthetic Minor Operating Permit, issued by Philadelphia Air Management Services (AMS). Langan completed the permit application package, which included an Air Pollution Control Act compliance review, reviewed draft permit conditions with the facility, and submitted comments to AMS on behalf of the facility. Upon issuance of the final permit, Langan prepared a summary in checklist form of requirements the facility was subject to, in order to assist in ongoing permit compliance. This checklist is used annually as compliance documentation for the annual compliance certification.
