California PERP/Portable Diesel Engine Phase-Out Schedule for Tiers 1, 2, and 3

Are you operating portable engines with California Air Resources Board (CARB) Portable Equipment Registration Program (PERP) registrations or air district permits? Tier 1s have already phased out, but do you know when the Tier 2 and Tier 3 engines will phase out? Would you like to apply for low-use rather than get rid of the older engines?

This webinar will cover the Tier Phase-Out schedule for Small Fleets [up to 750 horsepower (hp)] and Large Fleets (over 750 hp) and discuss the timing associated with switching to low-use, emergency-use, or selling the engine.

CARB Electrification of On-Road and Off-Road Vehicles: Regulation Activities and Planning Ahead for Zero Emission Vehicle Requirements

On-road vehicles and off-road equipment will all be required to transition to cleaner emissions, with the end goal of 100% ZERO EMISSION (ZE) technologies by 2035, where feasible. ZE currently is either battery-electric or hydrogen fuel-cell technologies.

This webinar will provide an overview of the existing regulations, as well as the transition into the new programs the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is developing. We will discuss strategies that can help fleets evaluate existing vehicle turnover planning and prepare for the upcoming additional phase-out dates and transition to ZE technologies, including topics of infrastructure and funding.
Impacted Vehicles and Fleets:

  • On-Road Vehicles: Truck and Bus Fleets (TRUCRS), Drayage Fleets, Public Fleets, and Federal Fleets.
  • Off-Road Diesel Fleets (DOORS-Diesel reporting).
  • Off-Road Large Spark-Ignition (LSI) Forklifts (DOORS-LSI reporting).

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

SCAQMD Rule 1147 New NOx limits for Ovens, Dryers, Fryer, Afterburners, TOs, and Misc. Sources

SCAQMD Rule 1147 regulates NOx emissions from miscellaneous combustion equipment. Rule amendments are proposed to include additional equipment such as: microturbines, autoclaves, tunnel dryers, absorption chillers, and singeing machines. The rule amendment date has not been determined.

Rule 1147.1 regulates NOx from Aggregate Dryers and was adopted in August 2021.

Proposed Rule 1147.2 will regulate NOx from Metal Heating and Melting Furnaces; this rule may be adopted In January 2022.

RECLAIM facilities that have been exempt from the NOx requirements of these rules will become subject to them as the RECLAIM program winds down. These rules establish BARCT emission standards that RECLAIM facilities will have to meet in the future.

SJVAPCD Boiler Rule NOx Limit Updates and Plan Submittal Requirements Explained – Rule 4306 and 4320

In December 2020, SJVAPCD published amended Rules 4306 and 4320, applicable to boilers, steam generators, and process heaters greater than 5 MMBtu/hr. These new rule amendments significantly reduce the allowable NOx limits on existing and new boilers, which unfortunately will require many facilities to upgrade their burners or replace the boilers.

This webinar will discuss the impacts of Rule 4306 and 4320 to new and existing boilers in the valley including the specific updated rule requirements and the timing of applicable compliance deadlines. This webinar will also cover specific examples for boilers.

CEQA Air Quality and GHG Emissions Technical Reports; What’s included and why

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) can be a major stumbling block in getting new facilities, expansions, and various land use developments through the permit approval process. Impacts to air quality from project pollutant emissions, health risks from air toxics, and impacts related to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are often the key issues for industrial and commercial projects when addressing CEQA. This 1-hour complimentary webinar will review some of the CEQA basics, such as when CEQA is applicable and what types of environmental documentation may be required.

We will discuss various analyses that are typically required for emissions quantification, air quality impacts, health risk assessments, and determination of CEQA significance. Yorke staff will share some of our lessons learned in getting through the CEQA and air permitting processes.

Storm Water Numeric Effluent Limits and Water Quality Based Corrective Actions

California’s Industrial Storm Water General Permit (IGP), issued since 1992, has utilized “benchmarks” and “numeric action levels” (NALs): storm water effluent concentration targets to which dischargers were required to aspire, but which were not actual enforceable limits. However, amendments to the IGP, some of which become effective on July 1, 2020, will change this by adopting enforceable numeric effluent limits (NELs) for specified water bodies. Several large urban watersheds in Southern California in particular will have very low limits set for metals, with some other water bodies across the State also affected in a somewhat more limited fashion for most industrial facilities. A second set of action levels known as TNALs are also being adopted for a different set of water bodies and watersheds, some of which will phase in over a period of years. NEL and TNAL concentrations are frequently below the current NAL concentrations, which means that affected facilities need to start developing compliance strategies as soon as possible.

This webinar will outline the affected water bodies/watersheds, the new standards that will be applied, and potential strategies for dealing with this major permit change.

Industrial Hygiene – Safety

 


CAL/OSHA Injury Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) Documents – 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.
