Air Construction Permit Application

Mission Pharmacal, Boerne, Texas

GSE provided assistance in preparing and submitting  an application for an air construction permit for a coater and regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO). This included running the SCREEN3 air dispersion model for the facility for determining ground-level concentrations of toxic air pollutants.

GSE's scope of work can be broken down as follows:

  • Site Visit and Preliminary Engineering:
    • Obtaining information from the client on equipment that may require permitting from TCEQ such as dust collectors, boilers and process equipment.
    • Review of the information provided by the client on the proposed coater.
    • Preparation of a preliminary engineering report and rule applicability analysis.
    • Presentation of the results to the TCEQ.
    • A site visit to the facility to observe the operation and determine what existing equipment required a “Permit-by-Rule”, a standard air permit or a “New Source Review” (NSR) permit.
  • Preparation of Air Construction Permit Applications for the Existing Equipment and Proposed Coating Line: 
    • Preparation and submission of an application for an air construction permit for the coater and RTO.
    • Preparation of applications for permits-by-rule for standard permits for existing equipment that was not already permitted.
    • Responded to requests for additional information from TCEQ and worked with the permitting engineer during the permitting process.
    • Assisted the client with the public notice process.
    • Reviewed the air permit draft and negotiated permit conditions.

The client was satisfied that GSE's work was completed on time and within budget.
