The Future of Air Quality Permitting
Modernizing the air quality permit process for the regulated and the regulator
Dispersion modeling has been performed in the same way with the same tools since the 1990's. NaviKnow has been developing a modern approach with today's technology to shorten weeks of analysis to just days. See what NaviKnow is doing and how it is going to save you time.
In my 20 year career with the TCEQ, my priority was to give guidance on dispersion modeling, so customers could provide an air quality analysis that the agency could approve. With decreasing agency resources and increasing regulatory demands, review timeframes were becoming extremely important for the agency and its customers. To expedite the review process while increasing the quality, I designed and developed tools to standardize and automate the review of air quality modeling analyses. The result was a more comprehensive and efficient process for agency staff and expeditious reviews for the regulated community.
From what I learned as a regulator, I wanted to provide the same level of automation for those compiling air quality analyses to submit to the TCEQ. Since I designed the system, I know the specifications and content necessary to take advantage of TCEQ’s system to quickly review and approve your analysis.
