Whether you are a commercial, industrial or government facility, you face the challenge of complying with air quality requirements while reducing operational costs and risks. Understanding the myriad requirements of amendments to the Clean Air Act in 1990 — addressing acid rain, urban pollution, and toxic air emissions — and their applicability to both small and large industries can be overwhelming.
SWCA’s experts will help you navigate air quality regulatory processes and create programs that are efficient and compliant. Our experts are well-versed in federal, state, and local permitting and compliance processes. Among our staff are recognized experts in programs ranging from the Acid Rain Program and Clean Air Interstate Rule to the NOx Budget Program and greenhouse gases (GHG).
Our knowledge of air quality regulations and permitting programs — along with our experience working with federal, state and local agencies — allows us to quickly and efficiently obtain permit approval. We are proficient at identifying sources of air emissions and quantifying the results using engineering principals and, as appropriate, emission factors. We provide compliance development, auditing, emissions inventories, and reporting to appropriate regulatory agencies. SWCA is at the forefront of emerging efforts and regulatory mandates related to GHG emissions.
Climate Change Management
We can help you understand your organization’s climate change opportunities and risks — and help you chart a course to better environmental and economic performance.
SWCA offers a dedicated group of engineers, environmental scientists, and planners to serve the growing need for climate change management services. Our climate change experience ranges from complex GHG inventories and data management systems for large companies and government agencies to Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) GHG permitting for power generation facilities. With our expertise in natural resource management and ecology, we understand the link between climate change and the natural environment and can provide comprehensive climate adaption and mitigation planning and solutions.
