In order to comply with TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) guidelines and state and federal laws, companies in certain categories must provide a Texas air emissions inventory on a regular basis. TCEQ uses this information in order to help plan programs for pollution control, conduct reviews of permits, provide data to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and more. ESE Partners can help you compile an air emissions inventory in Texas in a timely and efficient manner that accurately represents your operations and actual emissions. It’s not as easy as reporting the potential emissions on your permit as the reporting requirements specify emissions must be based on actual operations. This is important because regulators used the composite of emissions reported by permit holders to determine limitations on future permit applicants to meet air quality standards.
Do You Need to Worry About an Air Emissions Inventory?
Basically, if your facility produces emissions that could be considered harmful to the environment and your facility holds and air permit in Texas, you need to know if your emissions exceed the threshold for reporting a Texas air emissions inventory. If you have to comply with 30 TAC 101.10(a), then you’ll have to provide an air emissions inventory in Texas if your facility emits the following contaminants:
- Certain types of volatile organic compounds
- Hazardous air pollutants
- Sulfur dioxide
- PM5 and PM10
- And more
Depending on the size of your operation, preparing an air emissions inventory in Texas can be incredibly time consuming. The inventory report you submit to TCEQ has to be consistent with the toxic release inventory (TRI) report you send to the Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, you also have to report your emissions inventory to the Air Emissions Inventory Reporting (AEIR) within the State of Texas Environmental Electronic Reporting System (STEERS).
As you can see, the responsibilities are significant, to state the obvious. You have to go through a lot just to maintain TCEQ and EPA compliance. ESE Partners can take much of this burden off of your plate so you can maintain your focus on keeping your operation as profitable and efficient as possible.
