Note - "First Stack Test Report Submitted Electronically"
testing history was made in Florida last month - the first electronic
compliance report was submitted by Air Consulting & Engineering,
Inc (ACEI). Beginning May 1, 2001 the Central Florida District
Office began a pilot project for electronic submission of stack
test reports from power plants. Mr. Steve Neck of ACEI performed
the compliance testing on (2) combustion turbines. Three one-hour
test runs were conducted on each unit for Oxides of Nitrogen
(NOx), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and Volatile Organic Compounds
(VOC) using U.S. EPA Reference Methods 3A, 7E, 10, and 25A.
paper report was initially snail-mailed to meet the power plant's
permit filing deadline. Mr. Neck then contacted ActiveSET.org
to compile the electronic report from (1) Word document for
the text and sampling schematics,(2) Excel files for the test
data/calculations and (15) hardcopy documents (calibration gas
certifications, fuel analysis, production certification, report
certification, and VE's with certifications). All files and
scanned documents were converted to PDF format, compressed,
and submitted electronically to the Florida District Office
attached to e-mail. To streamline the process, ActiveSET.org
is currently developing an electronic compliance report template.
this also be the first electronic submission of a compliance
report in the entire U.S.? Let me know.
a great day.
in Time! - Walter Smith's August Workshop
S. Smith, the co-author of EPA reference methods 1-8, will conduct
the next Source Sampling & CEMS Workshop in Raleigh, NC.

the basics of the principle and practice of source sampling
as well as to familiarize the student with the operation of
stack sampling and CEMS equipment. It is targeted at those who
need a basic understanding of stack sampling such as environmental
executives & engineers and those purchasing, observing,
planning, or doing stack sampling or responsible for CEMS.
is a large amount of interest in the workshop but it is not
too late to register. For answers to specific questions about

5) A Great
Idea - "AIR PErmit PEople"
Bruno Ferarro, www.grovescientific.com
sent this suggestion:
about a listing of registered PE's in every state that can sign
air permit applications for out-of-state PE's? I encounter this
regularly when I have to hunt down a PE in another state that
can sign for our projects. The list could pre-qualify those
PE's that actually work on air permits and not civil engineers
that build bridges."
has added a new section "AIR PErmit PEople". It will
list three PE's for each state on a first come basis (only one
PE per company). U.S. and Canadian P.E.'s that work on air permits
can get a free listing by visiting: www.activeset.org/permitpeople/submit.htm
