Air Quality Webinars

SCAQMD Warehouse Operator Indirect Source Rule, Approved Rule 2305

Warehouse Operators in buildings that have a total of 100,000 square feet or more of indoor floor space will need to submit an Initial Site Information Report (ISIR). Additionally, Warehouse Operators with at least 50,000 square feet of warehousing activities will need to track truck trips to the warehouse, start earning WAIRE Points to offset these indirect emissions, and submit Annual WAIRE Reports.

This webinar will cover the applicability of the Warehouse Rule, the ISIR, WAIRE points, and annual WAIRE reporting. Additionally, the webinar will provide the basics of truck trip tracking and methods to earn WAIRE points.

SCAQMD Rule 1147 Series: NOx limits for Miscellaneous Combustion Sources, Aggregate Dryers, and Metal Melting and Heating Furnaces

SCAQMD Rule 1147 regulates nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from miscellaneous combustion equipment. Recent rule amendments include additional equipment, such as microturbines, autoclaves, tunnel dryers, absorption chillers, and tunnel kilns.

Rule 1147.1 regulates NOx from Aggregate Dryers and was adopted in August 2021.
Rule 1147.2 regulates NOx from Metal Heating and Melting Furnaces.

Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM) facilities that have previously been exempt from the NOx requirements of these rules will become subject to them as the RECLAIM program winds down. These rules establish Best Available Retrofit Control Technology (BARCT) emission standards that RECLAIM facilities will have to meet in the future.

SJVAPCD Amended Rule 4702: I.C. Engines for Agricultural and Non-Agricultural Operations

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) amended Rule 4702 Internal Combustion Engines on August 19, 2021, to require lower NOx, SOx, and VOC emission limits for stationary internal combustion engines used in agricultural and non-agricultural operations that are rated at 25 horsepower or greater. This webinar will cover the changes to the rule requirements, the schedule for submittal of Emission Control Plans and permit applications (beginning on August 1, 2022), sunsetting of the fee payment option, and more.

CARB Upcoming Requirements for OFF-ROAD Vehicles

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is actively creating the next set of requirements for both Off-Road Diesel and Large Spark-Ignition (LSI) fleets. This webinar will provide an overview of the existing requirements, as well as CARB’s plan to amend the Off-Road Diesel Regulation and transition LSI forklift fleets to 100% zero emissions. Impacted fleets include:

  • Off-Road Diesel Fleets; and
  • Off-Road LSI Forklifts.

Join us as we discuss strategies that will help fleets plan for existing vehicle turnover, upcoming phase-out dates, and the LSI transition to zero emission technologies.

CARB Upcoming Requirements for ON-ROAD Vehicles

On-road vehicles have a myriad of requirements in California. This webinar will provide an overview of the existing regulations and upcoming requirements from new and future regulations. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has adopted new smoke test requirements and is developing multiple vehicle turnover requirements under the Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) regulation for Public, Federal, and High-Priority (Large-Entity) Fleets, which will require the transition to 100% zero emission technologies by 2035, where feasible.

We will discuss strategies that can help fleets evaluate existing and upcoming requirements, including vehicle turnover planning.  Impacted vehicles and fleets include:

  • Truck and Bus Fleets (TRUCRS);
  • Drayage Fleets;
  • Public Fleets; and
  • Federal Fleets.

Join us as we navigate the (bumpy) path to operating cleaner vehicles in California.

Mobile Sources Incentives/Funding

Ready to transition to cleaner and/or zero emission technologies for on-road and off-road mobile vehicles in California? Wondering if there are funds available for your facility and operations? In this webinar, we will review some fleet incentive programs and their program structure, needed records, application processes, funding amounts, and program timelines for the delivery of vehicles and funds. Funding programs include Carl Moyer, VW Mitigation Trust, HVIP, CORE, and FARMER, which provide:

  • Replacement of existing vehicles with cleaner and/or zero emission vehicles;
  • Voucher programs for discounted zero emission vehicle purchases; and
  • Infrastructure Incentives.

Join us as we provide a roadmap on how to seek funds for early adoption of zero emission vehicles and/or replacement of older vehicles.

U.S. EPA TRI Program Basics

Each year, Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data are submitted by certain industrial facilities and made available to the public. During this Webinar we will discuss how to determine if your facility is required to report releases for this year’s list of chemicals using the EPA’s web-based reporting tool.

CUPA Inspections: Preparing and What to Expect for 2022 Inspections

As the pandemic (hopefully) recedes, Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) inspectors are getting back in the field after a period of mostly desktop and drive-by reviews. Coupled with this is a long-term evolution in California’s Unified Program, which is leading to an increased focus on enforcement methods at the individual CUPA level. Learn about the most common inspection findings, enforcement trends, and how to deal with the inevitable knock-on-the-door regarding hazardous waste, hazardous materials, Underground Storage Tanks (USTs), and other CUPA programs.

How to Minimize Your Compliance Cost and Risk Through Industrial Storm Water No Exposure

California’s industrial storm water General Permit (IGP) has become an increasing source of compliance cost and risk. Between the establishment of minimum Best Management Practices (BMPs) with the 2015 permit and the numeric effluent limits (NELs) that began taking effect in 2020, complying with the IGP has never been more complex and potentially costly. There is a way out, however – establishing your facility as a No Exposure facility will eliminate much of the risk and costs, if you can meet and maintain the No Exposure Certification (NEC) criteria. The webinar will explore No Exposure in detail, including reviewing some common challenges and regulatory uncertainties.

Recent and Upcoming Hazardous Waste Regulatory Changes

Statutory and regulatory changes to hazardous waste management in California will increase fees and potentially have significant impacts on industry. A Yorke hazardous waste expert will discuss the recent changes in detail, including potential confusion surrounding the upcoming implementation of the Generator Improvements Rule by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and other developments.

Occupational Health & Safety Webinars

CAL/OSHA Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) – The Start of a Great Safety Program

The Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is required by California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 8 Section 3203. This regulation requires employers to create, document, and implement a safety management system, creating a proactive process to find and reduce workplace hazards before injuries occur. Research has shown such programs can be effective in transforming workplace culture and reducing illnesses and injuries to employees.

This webinar will discuss the implications of Section 3203’s hazard recognition requirement, the elements of an effective IIPP, and available resources to support the creation of the program.

Personal Exposure Monitoring

California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 8 Section 5155 requires that air monitoring be performed if there is a possibility of exposure to airborne contaminants that may exceed the regulatory levels listed in Table AC-1. Some chemicals require establishing a baseline exposure by performing initial air monitoring. There are so many chemicals in a workplace, how do you prioritize which monitoring should be performed? It is best to approach your air monitoring by formulating a logical plan of attack. This webinar will walk through the process of developing and implementing an industrial hygiene monitoring plan.
