Title: Software helps achieve Clean Air Act compliance

Obtaining major source operating permits under the Title 5 provisions of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments won't be easy. For Eastman Chemical Co. of Kingsport, Tenn., tracking emissions and preparing reports and permit applications will be a major undertaking. To obtain valid permits, the company needs to identify the components in its air emissions, particularly hazardous air pollutants; be accountable for the emissions stated on the permit limits; and fulfill monitoring, record keeping and reporting requirements. After reviewing commercially available software, Eastman Chemical chose the Air Emission Management System (AEMS) from EnviroMetrics Software Inc. of New Castle, Del., to help calculate, track and report its air emissions data. AEMS also will be used to provide documentation for the methods used to estimate or otherwise determine the emissions, and eventually will be used to produce the air permit applications needed for Title 5.
