2015 SESSIONS 

Air Permits 302:  Louisiana Air Policy Requirements

The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) is sponsoring free training sessions for communities, businesses, and other organizations that will give an understanding of LDEQ AIR POLICIES.  For several decades, LDEQ has added several “Air Policy” sets of requirements where our written regulations do not provide clear monitoring for demonstrating compliance.  These policy sets are used for various typical control devices such as filters, scrubbers, cyclones and non-NSPS Flares, etc.  This class will explain the regulatory basis that allows LDEQ to add these requirements, and provides some insight as to when a permit writer would add them to a permit.  It also provides the intent of the requirement.  What it’s trying to accomplish.  As such, it should be clearly understood that these can be modified to meet a specific facility’s equipment.  There is also additional information regarding stack testing.   Come learn more about these Louisiana Air Policy requirements that can’t be found in the “Book”! Please register for one of the sessions below.  Sessions are from 10AM-12PM.
