Rubbertown NGEM Demonstration Project?Community Update Meeting 2, July 25, 2017
Thoma, E. Rubbertown NGEM Demonstration Project?Community Update Meeting 2, July 25, 2017. LMAPCD meeting 2, Louisville, KY, July 25, 2017.
This is a slide deck for part of a community webinar held by LMAPCD to provide an update on the project. The slides will be delivered by team lead E. Thoma remotely by webinar. A draft version of the QAPP for the project will be provided to the community as part of this communication.
This is a periodic public communication under the Louisville NGEM project (R4 RARE and AE EM Task 1.2). Background: From the shared perspective of industrial facilities, regulators, and nearby communities, effective detection of fugitive emissions of volatile organic and odiferous compounds is a mutually beneficial concept. If unanticipated emissions that require mitigation can be found and fixed in a timely manner, benefits such as lower air shed impacts, safer working environments, cost saving through reduced project loss, and improved community relations can be realized. Under its next generation emission measurement (NGEM) program, EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) is working to develop new sensor and modeling approaches that can assist facilities in detection and mitigation of certain air pollution sources. To help advance NGEM research, EPA ORD, EPA Region 4, and the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (LMAPCD) are working together on research effort to demonstrate NGEM approaches at and near facilities in the Rubbertown industrial district of Louisville KY.
