Air Quality CA Toxics Update

This complimentary webinar is designed for facilities that emit air toxics and, thus, are potentially affected by the California AB 2588 air toxics program. The toxics regulation program methodologies were revised in 2015 and have led to significant air toxics update requirements for many facilities in your local air district. This webinar will provide a summary of how the AB 2588 program works and how it is being revisited by the local air districts and will provide useful tips and strategies. Details will include the AB 2588 process steps used to calculate your toxics priority score and techniques for reducing your score and/or reducing the facility health risk impact.

Air Quality – Odor Quantification and Control

This complimentary webinar will address how air quality odors are handled from a regulatory standpoint, as well as odor quantification, odor monitoring systems, odor modeling, odor control systems, and generally how to address odor issues. There are numerous odors; however, as an example, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is known to be a common odor-causing compound, and odor nuisance can be detected in some individuals as low as 0.5 parts per billion (ppb). Monitoring for H2S or for other odors presents unique challenges due to the intermittency of source strength, the limitations to the instrument detection levels, and operating data acquisition systems that manage instantaneous and short-term averaging periods, as well as threshold notifications. Each of the odor compounds will have unique control system requirements. This webinar will cover the common odor situations and practical steps that can be taken to address odor complaints.
