Air quality authorization procedure for cogeneration plants in the USA
Market and policy
The steps needed to obtain air quality permits for a plant in the USA are: define the project, complete the air quality authorization form and review the documentation together with the relevant agency. The procedure is fairly rapid in the case of cogeneration plants, since these are efficient installations that reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and use gas instead of coal. In general, a good knowledge of the project and good communication between the parties involved will ensure that the permits are obtained.
