Controlling air pollution from motor vehicles will improve air quality and protect public health. The 1965 Motor Vehicle Air Pollution Control Act prohibited the sale of high-emitting vehicles and the tampering of any pollution control devices. The 1970 Clean Air Act required further emission reductions that focused on the criteria air pollutants.

Division of Air Pollution Control Engineering Guide #10 Question: In stone processing operations, the rock is removed from the quarry, crushed and classified by size with screens. Since these operations are generally not equipped with control equipment or stacks, should the process weight portion of
Air pollution comes from many different sources: stationary sources such as factories, power plants, and smelters and smaller sources such as dry cleaners and degreasing operations; mobile sources such as cars, buses, planes, trucks, and trains; and naturally occurring sources such as windblown dust, and volcanic eruptions, all contribute to air pollution.

The Vermont Air Pollution Control Regulations Section 5-401 broadly defines those air contaminant sources and respective thresholds, if any, requiring an air permit. The permit review process is intended to ensure both new and existing emission sources are properly designed and operated with effective emission control measures.
----- FUGITIVE EMISSIONS AND FUGITIVE DUST EMISSIONS Introduction and Purpose This paper has been prepared to define the differences between, and discuss pertinent facts concerning two separate, but in some cases, strikingly similar air pollution problems, i.e., fugitive emissions and fugitive dust emissions.

Air Emissions - New Source Review Program An Environmental Permitting Fact Sheet. Program Overview. The New Source Review permit program, administered by the Engineering and Enforcement Division of the Bureau of Air Management, regulates emissions released to the air from new and modified stationary sources.
Our Thermal Catalytic Oxidizers can be built to handle any size volume of gas. Customers can count on Epcon to design air pollution control systems or any number of custom systems specific to your process. Air pollution is a global problem and Epcon is committed to solving the problem through expert engineering and design services.
2.1 "Affected facility" as related to process operations means the last operation preceding the emission of air contaminants that results: 2.1.1 In the separation of the air contaminant from the process materials, or 2.1.2 In the conversion of the process materials into air contaminants, but does not include an air abatement operation.
Jun 03, 2015· "APCO" means the executive officer, air pollution control officer, or the designee of the executive officer or air pollution control officer of any air pollution control or air quality management district created or continued in existence pursuant to Part 3 (commencing with section 40000), Division 26, Health and Safety Code.
During operation, a number of means would be employed to prevent or reduce emissions of air pollutants, including: • Application of best available control technology (BACT), as required by PSD per-mit. • Partial enclosure of coal unloading, transfer and conveying equipment, plus appli-cation of water sprays, as needed, and use of baghouses.
Oxygen can be supplied to the biofilm, either concurrently or countercurrently with water flow. Aeration occurs passively by the natural flow of air through the process (three phase biofilter) or by forced air supplied by blowers. Microorganisms' activity is a key-factor of the process performance.
Stationary emission sources are divided into two categories in the Clean Air Act (CAA): major stationary sources (also called point sources) and area sources (see Box 5-1).Both contribute significantly to air pollution in the United States, and the CAA has contained provisions to regulate and control emissions from many of these sources for over three decades.
NON-TITLE V PERMIT APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS . FACILITY IDENTIFICATION FORM ( 100) This form should be completed for the process emission source s, fuel burning installations, or incinerators that are contained in this application. This form may be used for a single source or multiple sources. The following are examples:
If a source has any air cleaning devices (air pollution control), such as a baghouse, include an 101 for each emission point and include an 113 if there will be a cyclone. Woodworking Operations – Submit an 100 and 113 for each source controlled by a single cyclone.
During oil and gas field production and processing operations, wastewater is generated from processes such as product separation and glycol dehydration. The wastewater may be treated on-site or it may be forwarded to an approved wastewater treatment facility. Many types of units are used to treat, store, and transfer wastewater on-site.
