The Present and Future of Annual Emission Inventories

April 26 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

Every year, sources with air quality permits must submit an annual emission inventory to their respective permitting authority, providing a total facility-wide emission total for the previous year. For sources with Maricopa County AQD permits, the deadline for this submittal is May 13, and sources with Arizona DEQ permits must submit by June 1. These inventories are used for estimating the impacts of proposed regulations, better understanding sources of air pollution, and determining compliance with permit requirements.

Join us for a presentation by MCAQD and ADEQ on the EI process, how the data is used, and potential changes for the future.

Eric Raisanen | MCAQD

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department is currently planning changes to the annual inventory process, including online training; and a new system called IMPACT, which will allow inventories to be submitted online. They are also working on a periodic emission inventory for 2017, which includes all sources of emissions, not just permitted sources. Eric Raisanen will
talk about all these projects, as well as answer any questions about emission inventories.

Eric Raisanen holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from NAU in Flagstaff and an Associate Degree in Hazardous Materials Management from Paradise Valley Community College. He has been with the Air Quality department for over 20 years as an Emissions Inventory Planner.

Arizona State Emissions Inventory Reports: Current and Future

Death, taxes, and air quality emissions inventories are inevitable, but the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality can only make one of these painless. Catherine will discuss new updates to the State and Local Emissions Inventory System (SLEIS) including new validation procedures and reporting for minor sources. Additional topics covered include ADEQ’s process of data validation and exciting updates to the state emissions inventory rules.

Catherine Lucke, E.I.T. is a Environmental Engineer at ADEQ and works on Annual Emission Inventories and State Implementation Plans. She has worked at ADEQ for 5 years and holds a degree in Geological Engineering from the Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly University of Missouri—Rolla).
