Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
Trinity Consultants, an international environmental consulting firm, will present Web-based training for environmental professionals on the recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed emissions standards for industrial boilers at major sources of Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) emissions. The rule, commonly called “Boiler MACT”, was proposed on April 29, 2010 and is expected to be finalized this year. It will affect thousands of facilities that burn natural gas, fuel oil, biomass, refinery gas, or other gas, requiring facilities to reduce associated emissions significantly. The new rule targets emissions of numerous hazardous air pollutants including mercury, other metals and organic air toxics.
The two Web-based training sessions, Preparing for the Proposed Boiler Rules, will be held July 13 and July 15, each from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm CDT. The presentations will be delivered by John E. (Jay) Hofmann, President/CEO of Trinity Consultants, and Tony Jabon, Principal Consultant in Trinity’s Charlotte, NC office. Mr. Hofmann is a noted authority on air quality permit requirements for major industrial sources in the U.S. and Mr. Jabon is the firm’s senior technical staff person focused on boiler-related regulations.
According to Hofmann, “There is perhaps no U.S. environmental regulatory initiative currently underway that will have a more significant impact than the Boiler MACT. The emissions limits have been lowered significantly as compared with those in the previous iteration of the rule that was vacated by the courts in 2007. In fact, some companies may be faced with shuttering facilities due to the economics of complying with this rule.” For more information on upcoming Webinars, visit http://www.trinityconsultants.com/webinars.
