Emission inventory management system for the pulp and paper industry in the State of Louisiana
The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA) have caused the pulp and paper industry to be confronted with environmental regulations which require an intense expansion of emission inventories. Under Title III of the CAAA, the recently promulgated Cluster Rule has compelled pulp and paper mills to prepare a thorough emission inventory of hazardous air pollutants. Title V of the CAAA requires major source facilities to prepare and submit an operating permit application. The operating permit application must include a complete emission inventory of regulated pollutants. In addition to these regulatory requirements at the federal level, the pulp and paper industry in the state of Louisiana is subject to two annual emission inventory reporting requirements by state regulations. Subsequently, a database management system was designed to consolidate these various emission inventories. This paper examines the need for collecting and managing emission data in the pulp and paper industry and the how the database management system serves to fulfill this need.
