Each year in the U.S., industrial operations emit nearly 100 million tons of pollutants into the air. These pollutants make breathing difficult, form urban smog, impair visibility, and attack ecosystems. This course provides valuable information for those individuals who work either for an industry which is required to obtain an air permit or for a firm which prepares air permit applications. We will cover the basics of the Clean Air Act, discuss the need for issuing air permits, and explain various types of air permits, including the key requirements for acid rain permits, pre-construction permits, and operating permits.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
