Air Emission Permits and Regulatory Compliance

AKRF's air quality expertise includes preparing applications for pre-construction and operating air permits, as well as federal permits including Title V operating permits, and prevention of significant deterioration/new source review (PSD/NSR) permits under the Clean Air Act.

AKRF’s staff understands the complex permitting process and works closely with clients and regulatory agencies to ensure that permits can be issued in a timely manner. We work with facility owners and operators to establish permit conditions that allow for maximum operating flexibility.

We also have extensive experience preparing air emission inventories, comprehensive regulatory evaluations, and other technical studies that support design feasibility studies; Environmental Impact Statements (EISs); and air permit applications.
