  • Stack Testing Fundamentals (8/7/2024 - 8 AM - 5 PM)

    Stack Testing Fundamentals (8/7/2024 - 8 AM - 5 PM)

    This session features a full day of training on the fundamentals of commonly performed EPA Reference Methods (RM) including sampling site selection, flow and moisture methods, instrumental methods, and isokinetic sampling methods including filterable and condensable particulate matter methods. The session does not provide qualified stack testing individual (QSTI) accreditation, but rather focuses on organizing and overseeing a successful stack testing program and reviewing stack test data for accuracy and consistency. Accurate stack test data are a critical component of any successful air program. Any source that is required to have stack testing performed will benefit from the informative and interactive course material.

  • Part 75/MATS CEMS Requirements (8/8/2024 - 8 AM - 5 PM)

    Part 75/MATS CEMS Requirements (8/8/2024 - 8 AM - 5 PM)

    This session is an in depth discussion of EPA's Part 75 monitoring and reporting requirements, which apply to affected sources under the Acid Rain Program, the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), and various state and regional programs (e.g. SIP Call, RGGI). The material will also address the monitoring and reporting requirements in the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) including recent regulatory updates. The session will also include a summary and discussion of recent regulatory actions impacting electric generating utilities. Although designed for utility sources, many non-utility sources will find value in this session if they are affected sources under CSAPR or regional budget programs, are otherwise required to follow Part 75 monitoring provisions, or are required to continuously monitor mercury or particulate matter.
