Alta Environmental’s Chris Waller Invited Speaker at Industrial Environmental Association’s Monthly Meeting
The Industrial Environmental Association (IEA)’s Vernon Regulatory Committee invited Alta’s Chris Waller, Director of EHS & Air, to share his expertise on the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) 2018 Annual Emission Report (AER). IEA’s monthly meetings include EHS departments from various manufacturing companies in the area and other environmental consultants.
With the deadline approaching for designated facilities, Chris presented a variety of suggestions to successfully and efficiently complete the AER submittal. Such guidance issues included:
In addition to these topics, Chris introduced new AER items applicable to the 2018 reporting period. The most important changes pertain to facilities subject to the new CARB AB 617 program. As it’s the first year the SCAQMD is implementing AB 617 into the AER, regulated facilities may notice new fields in the AER reporting tool. Furthermore, these facilities may require additional emissions reporting from their existing sources.
The 2018 AER is due March 19, 2019 at 5:00 PM. Alta’s Environmental Health, Safety, and Air experts can provide a thorough review of your facility’s applicability to the AER to ensure your emissions are accurately reported. Over-reporting may result into higher emission fees and further SCAQMD compliance issues. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (562) 495-5777.
