- Methanol Plant Permits & Compliance
When a client decided to construct a grass-roots 5,000 ton/day methanol plant, one of our team leads was part of the project site selection team, evaluating potential locations in multiple states. Our team lead developed a comprehensive permit plan and coordinated multiple permit processes including for wastewater discharge and wetlands impacts. Our team lead managed all air permitting to obtain a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permit for conventional pollutants and an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) PSD permit for greenhouse gases. All permits were finalized in time to meet the construction schedule. Our team also developed tools and other compliance program elements in preparation for plant startup.
