ERM at EUEC 2019

ERM is supporting this event as an exhibitor at booth #484, on advisory boards, as well as providing five presentations across various tracks.

The Continued Evolution of NSR under the Trump Administration
Technical Track A - Regulatory Update
EPA is continuing to address New Source Review as a part of the Trump Administration’s deregulatory agenda.  The status of these efforts and potential future changes will be reviewed. ERM Partner Dave Jordan will be presenting.

Buoyant Line Source Implementation Issues in AERMOD
Technical Track B - CEMS & Air Quality
EPA’s addition of the BLP model’s buoyant line source to their preferred short-range air dispersion model, AERMOD, was important, but the implementation was flawed. For cases where there are multiple buoyant line sources, or when modeling NO2, these issues result in inaccurate model results. ERM worked closely with EPA to develop a workaround solution which has been approved for use in all modeling studies. This presentation describes the issues, ERM’s solution, and the process by which the solution was approved for general use. ERM Principal Consultant Richard Hamel will be presenting.

Siting Solar- Zoning and Ordinance Considerations
Technical Track F - Renewable Energy
This presentation will address basic interpretation of zoning code, tips for early consultation with planning departments and ideas for incorporating zoning compatibility, supportive ordinances and/or solar overlays early into the development process to inform siting and landowner outreach. This approach saves time, money and significantly reduces the risk of rejected zoning variances and public opposition. ERM Senior Consultant Nikki Payne will be presenting.

Creating Value with Managed Corporate Environmental Compliance Services
Technical Track G - O&M, DDD & EHS
Utilities and IPP’s are radically streamlining their internal EHS functions to achieve their environmental compliance needs.  ERM is working with US largest utilities for both generating and transmission businesses, including providing the corporate environmental function to a major IPP via performance-based managed services, while maintaining and increasing the value of the assets. ERM Partner Dave Shotts will be presenting.

Impingement Technology Performance Optimization Study Under BTA
Technical Track I - Water & 316(b)
This study documents use of existing data, such as, peer reviewed data, lake management fisheries data, and available impingement data, to determine potential and theoretical rates of impingement for assessing site-specific optimization of existing technologies associated with cooling water intake structures amid varied source water types and locations. ERM Technical Director Kurtis Schlicht will be presenting.

ERM in the Power Sector

Our services for the Power Sector assist the industry in responding to a range of challenges. We support our clients as they enter new markets, often in the areas of site assessment and selection, and then as they invest in, license and construct major capital facilities. Once operational, ERM works with clients to achieve operational excellence by ensuring fit-for-purpose systems are in place to achieve long-term compliance. As facilities age, ERM helps our clients reclaim residual asset value through implementation of demolition, decontamination, decommissioning, and land reuse programs.
