Refinery Emission Testing

Refinery emission testing is a key element of Title V compliance. Under Title V of the Clean Air Act, the EPA requires certain industrial operators to get an operating permit, adhere to the standards demanded by that permit, and certify their Title V compliance on an annual basis. If you’re a major source that produces at least 100 tons of any air pollutant per year, 10 tons per year of any single hazardous air pollutant (HAP), or 25 tons per year of any combination of HAPs, you need to maintain Title V certification. Certain non-major sources may be required to obey these strictures as well. (Your organization may also be subject to various state, provincial, or other compliance standards.)

As a leading emission testing contractor, Erthwrks can perform the necessary evaluations to help you satisfy Title V compliance as well as state requirements. Our independently-powered mobile laboratories, and our ability to measure multiple pollutants at the same time, can ensure that testing occurs as promptly and efficiently as possible. Our Relative Accuracy Test Audit (RATA) measures stack emissions while also comparing those readings against your Continuous Emissions Monitoring System for same-day results. The result is a smoother, more cost-effective testing process that helps you maintain productivity as well as uninterrupted federal and state compliance.

Stationary Engine Testing

  • 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart JJJJ – NOx, CO, and VOC testing
  • Pre and Post Catalyst testing for pollutant reduction usually via 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart ZZZZ – Formaldehyde (HCOH) and CO reduction efficiency
  • Permit by Rule/Source Performance Guarantees
    • Every state and sometimes every source has specific guidelines
    • Examples of this are:
    • 40 CFR Part 60 Subparts KKKK – Turbine Compliance Testing
    • 40 CFR Part 60 Subparts GG – Turbine Compliance Testing
