7 Engineering Solutions Meaningful Data Collection Technical Solutions Facility/Company Management Environmental Agency Community

8 Technology Benchmarking Reg. 419 Section 32 Methodology Thorough review of options Thoughtful evaluation of feasibility Justified selection of solution

9 Technology Benchmarking Available control technologies are identified and reviewed Three categories of control options are considered Material Substitution (Prevention) Process Change (Minimization) Add-on Controls (Treatment) Technical feasibility of control options in each category is determined.

10 Benchmarking contd. Emission (odour) reduction potential of technically feasible options are estimated and ranked from greatest to least effective Site specific factors considered Collateral effects Cost Appropriate site specific technically feasible emission (odour) reduction actions selected

11 Benchmarking - Example Coating Systems - Operations to obtain a functional and aesthetic finish. The three elements of a coating system that relate to potential air emissions are Coating type (Material) Method of application (process) Add on emission control Available control options for the above 3 categories should be considered.

12 Available Control Options

13 Technically Feasible Control Options

14 Emission Reduction Potential of feasible Options Emission reduction potential of technically feasible options is considered for all 3 categories

15 Emission Reduction Potential of feasible Options Contd.

16

17 Benchmarking - example Rank options based upon greatest to least effective in potential emission (odour) reductions. Select and justify most appropriate actions based upon site specific considerations of feasible technology.

18 Technology Benchmarking Summarized: Identify potential technologies Evaluate feasibility to site specific circumstances Rank feasible options from best to least Select most feasible technology appropriate to site Select best feasible technology appropriate to site
