AIR DISPERSION MODELING
Pinnacle has completed air dispersion modeling projects for several facilities in places including but not limited to Ohio, Iowa, Nebraska, and Minnesota. These projects are often in conjunction with a facility air permit modification or a condition established in a new permit.
FOOD PACKAGING COMPANY AIR PERMITTING & COMPLIANCE
A food packaging company with two manufacturing plants discovered an opportunity to purchase a larger plant nearby. The new facility would allow them to consolidate both of the previous facilities under one roof.
AIR PERMIT COMPLIANCE SERVICES
An industrial biomass energy facility had air permit compliance issues relating back to initial permitting of its facility. Pinnacle Engineering (Pinnacle) became involved with the client during stack testing of the source, which showed that SO2 emissions were much higher than predicted and originally permitted. Pinnacle was contracted to provide engineering services, air permitting related services, and air dispersion modeling services.
AIR PERMITTING WASTE COMPOSITION STUDY
A medical waste combustor is required to undergo a waste composition study every five years as a requirement of its air emission permit under MN Rule 7007.0501, Subpart 2. The study requirements include performing a fractional analysis, proximate analysis, ultimate analysis, and heat value evaluation of the medical waste processed by the facility.
