This training course series (outlined below) is intended for new, entry-level as well as semi-experienced staff.
Maximum Attendance for each course is 30 students in order to allow for instructors to fully engage students and manage Question and Answer sessions, ultimately making each course more interactive. MARAMA will work with your state agency Training Coordinators to confirm and prioritize attendance as necessary. You will receive a confirmation notice from the new LMS system once you have been ENROLLED in each course.
Registration Deadline Date: August 11, 2023
Registration Contact Information: Sue Dilli and Jackie Burkhardt (email@example.com), or Sharon Ray (firstname.lastname@example.org).
TOXC221 Degreasing Operations | Sept. 26, 2023 | AGENDA TBD
This course provides baseline information on a variety of solvents cleaning/degreasing operations. Topics include: types of solvents, types of degreasers, emission control equipment used and inspection procedures. Discussion of regulatory issues such as the Title III MACT standards, NESHAPS for Halogenated Solvents, RACT/BARCT guidelines and local prohibitory rules are also included. Students will also receive first-hand experience during the afternoon field visit (mock inspection) at a local business with a permitted solvent cleaning operation.
Those completing this course will gain a basic understanding of the general information associated with solvent cleaning specifically degreasing operations. Attendees will be able to perform regulatory reviews involving the following elements of Degreasing operations:
• Types of solvents
• Types of degreasers
• Emission control equipment used and inspection procedures
• Regulatory issues such as the Title III MACT standards
• NESHAPS for Halogenated Solvents
• RACT/BARCT guidelines
• Local prohibitory rules
TOXC222 Incinerators | Sept. 27, 2023 | AGENDA TBD
This course will focus on the process, emission control equipment and inspection procedures of small to medium sized solid waste incinerators. The types of incinerators include biomedical, pathological, crematories and commercial heat stripping ovens. This course does not address municipal waste combustors, biomass or hazardous waste incinerators. There is an afternoon field visit where students will receive first-hand experience during a mock inspection of a local business with a permitted incinerator.
Those completing this course will gain a basic understanding of the general information associated with incinerators operations. Attendees will be able to perform regulatory reviews involving the following elements of incinerators: The following topics will be covered in this course:
• 3 T’s of combustion
• Types of combustion
• Categories of Industrial Incinerators
• Typical Incinerator Operating Procedures
• Typical Operational Errors
• Incinerator Emissions & Control
• Incinerator Inspection
• Air Pollution Control Points of Inspection
TOXC223 IC Engines (RICE) | Sept. 28, 2023 | AGENDA TBD
Stationary reciprocating engines are used widely for power generation, gas compression, and many other purposes. They are also a significant source of air contaminants and as such are the focus of increased regulation. This course covers reciprocating engine operating theory, both standard and “cutting-edge” emission control technologies, regulations, permit conditions, and inspection procedures.
Those completing this course will gain a basic understanding of the general information associated with stationary reciprocating engines. Attendees will be able to perform regulatory reviews involving the following elements of stationary reciprocating engines:
• Background Information
• Theory and Operation
• Air/Fuel Delivery Systems
• Reciprocating Engine Emissions
• Emissions Control Methods
• Inspecting Stationary ICEs
TOXC224 Turbines and Power Plants | Sept. 29, 2023 | AGENDA TBD
With an increase in demand of the electric utility industry, stationary gas turbines have become more popular in recent years as combined-cycles, peaking power plants and cogeneration facilities. The course discusses uses of gas turbines, fundamentals of operation of modern turbines with emphasis on state-of-the-art controls to achieve some of the lowest emission concentrations for this source category. The course also discusses combined cycles with HRSG units, steam turbines and power generation. This is followed by a detailed discussion on emissions and control techniques such as Dry Low-NOx combustors with staged combustion, water or steam injection followed by SCR and CO catalysts. Applicable federal and local BACT regulations, permitting requirements, and agency inspection procedures and safety concerns are thoroughly discussed.
Those completing this course will gain a basic understanding of the general information associated with stationary gas turbines plants. Attendees will be able to perform regulatory reviews involving the following elements of stationary gas turbines:
• Gas turbine history, theory of operation
• Gas turbine uses
• Air pollution control devices
• Gas turbine regulations
• Typical permit conditions
• Inspection procedures
• Continuous emission monitoring
• Source testing requirements
