This includes evaluation of whether the company is a Natural Minor, Synthetic Minor or Major Source. She has completed all types of facilities of permits, as well as operating permits such as Plan approvals, permits to construct, and Title V applications.

This includes different performances standards established in the EPA regulations as well as state source standards, and Title III NESHAPS Requirements.

She and her staff also provide outsourcing services regarding air emissions recordkeeping and emissions calculations that are required on a monthly and 12 rolling average basis.

The Title III portion involves various community right to know laws such as Tier I and II reporting and Toxic Release Reporting (Form R).

She has extensive knowledge of the various exemptions contained in Form R reporting and extensive experience in obtaining legal exemption from the regulations as well as substantiating and documenting the exemption for agency review and approval.
