What Is a Title V Air Permit?
A Title V Air Permit is a permit required by the EPA for facilities that discharge emissions to the atmosphere and are major sources of pollutants like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) or nitrogen oxides (NOx). A Title V permit has strict recordkeeping, reporting and compliance requirements.
What is Required for a Title V Permit?
Since the purpose of a Title V permit under the Clean Air Act (CAA) is to help EPA protect the public health, there are multiple obligations you’ll need to meet if you need to obtain coverage. Depending on the specific permit, these requirements can include:
- Calculating usage rates and emission rates
- Reporting all emissions annually to EPA
- Keeping daily and weekly usage records
- Conducting continuous emissions monitoring
- Performing and documenting inspections of controls and gauges
- Report and explain any deviations in your emissions
