"Get Fired Up About Air Quality Compliance" Combustion Source Workshop - 5/15/2014
Combustion sources like boilers and generators have many air quality requirements such as permitting, compliance with federal emission standards (GACTS), and review under the North Carolina Air Toxics Program. MCAQ's 2014 workshop focused on those key requirements and included some tools to help boiler and generator owners stay on top of compliance. View presentations here:

Permitting 101 Workshop - 4/22/2012
Permitting 101 Introduction
Prior to installing a new source or modifying an existing source of regulated emissions, a facility must submit a permit application and receive an Air Quality Permit to Construct/Operate. MCAQ’s 2012 Spring Workshop: "Permitting 101" focused on the fundamentals of compiling and submitting a complete permit application.
NESHAP Workshop - 5/22/2012
NESHAP is an acronym for the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, which is found in the Code of Federal Regulations Title 40 Part 61. Mecklenburg County Air Quality ("MCAQ") enforces 40 CFR 61 Subpart M – "National Emission Standard for Asbestos." 40 CFR 61.145 - "Standard for demolition and renovation" is applicable to all facilities that are being demolished and those facilities being renovated where renovation may result in regulated asbestos containing materials ("RACM") being stripped, removed, dislodged, cut, drilled, or similarly disturbed in regulated quantities.
Stage I Vapor Recovery Workshop - 5/21/2012
Gasoline dispensing facilities receive gasoline products in underground storage tanks (UST's) from vapor tight truck tanks. Pipes and valves interconnecting the UST's and truck tank create a "closed loop" (i.e. Stage I gasoline vapor recovery system). The Stage I gasoline vapor recovery system collects 96% of the vapors that would have otherwise been emitted to the atmosphere to form ozone, and returns them to the bulk gasoline terminal for processing.
