The client wanted an air quality consulting firm that could handle all of the facilities air quality needs including compliance, permitting, monitoring, modeling, climate change, and program management. The company selected ALL4 in 2004 to assist with the management of the their air quality program.
ALL4’s approach represented the philosophy of the company, to in essence, become the client. This was accomplished by assigning a dedicated team to the project that understood the industry, the nuances of permitting and compliance in Pennsylvania, and the scrutiny that accompanies the operation of a source of Lead emissions in Pennsylvania, specifically in Berks County.
ALL4 provides value on an on-going basis to the client by supporting them in negotiations with regulators, developing creative permitting strategies that are consistent with the growth plans for the facility and State/Federal permitting requirements, providing continuous emissions monitoring (CEMS) and emission test program support, evaluating applicability of new/revised State and Federal regulations (e.g., NSPS, NESHAP, SIP requirements, etc.), resolving alleged non-compliance issues, assisting with lead NAAQS compliance , assisting with the operation of the ambient air quality monitoring network, preparation of emissions reports, preparation of compliance reports, and providing overall assistance to all things air quality related.
