Exergy D&E was contracted to develop environmental compliance requirements and prepare air emission inventories to identify if the two Marine Corps Air Stations are subject to various environmental requirements.
We quantified emissions from a number of sources at these facilities including IC engines, boilers, laboratories, and paints and coatings uses. The project included on-site emission surveys of major, exempt, and insignificant emissions sources. Hundreds of sources were inventoried to develop permitting and regulatory compliance requirements.
To collect the necessary data to quantify emissions from each process, we developed in-depth questionnaires for each process type. The data was transcribed on these forms and then entered into an Exergy-developed database, designed to calculate process specific and activity-wide emissions,
by source and pollutant type. Emission estimates under various operating scenarios were also developed for each activity.
Other elements of this project included: analysis of the regulations applicable to each activity, operating permit
preparation, and development of appropriate ongoing monitoring procedures to ensure regulatory compliance.
Exergy has completed numerous other projects for the NAVFAC, including CFC phase-out programs, as a prime contractor as well as a sub-contractor to major engineering firms.
