When a confidential power client proposed expanding its existing landfill-gas-to-energy facility by adding two 1.6-megawatt engines, Barr was hired to develop an application to obtain an air construction permit for the installation of two engines. The application included a calculation of emissions from the landfill-gas-fired engines; review and compliance demonstration for state and federal standards, including the U.S. EPA’s MACT standards for engines (Subpart ZZZZ); and NSPS (Subpart JJJJ).
Barr modeled air emissions to demonstrate compliance with the state toxic-air-pollutants rule. We also completed an evaluation to show the project would meet presumptive BACT requirements under state law. The state regulatory agency issued the permit for construction of the two new engines in 2013.
