Environmental Compliance for Power Generation
Environmental regulations for power generation facilities evolve and change. Navigating this challenging landscape requires experience with the range of rules and regulations presented under the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act — including Effluent Limitations Guidelines, the Clean Power Plan and more.
Air quality: We have been helping power industry clients complete air quality control projects for decades, and our specialists are experienced in compliance studies, permitting, system evaluations, process design, water use and management, equipment specifications, construction management, startup, testing and troubleshooting.
Our experience includes air quality control system technology evaluations, helping utilities assess cost-effective solutions to environmental compliance needs, whether for operation and maintenance performance or reliability and maintainability studies for multipollutant technologies.
Combustion byproducts: New Environmental Protection Agency rules for disposal of coal combustion residuals have changed long-standing industry practices. Our staff has experience in all key fields to determine your path forward.
Decommissioning and demolition: Taking a coal-, oil- or gas-fired plant out of operation requires planning and detailed staging. We have the experience to evaluate your plant’s individual site environmental remediation required, and systems/facilities modifications to develop an optimal decommissioning plan.
