Unit II Mini Project
Over the course of these remaining seven units, we will be developing a course project. We will do a single section of the course project in every unit, completing one section of the course project in each unit, and then adding the subsequent work in the following unit. This unit work will be in the form of mini projects, and in Unit VIII, you will submit the entire project. Throughout the course, your instructor will provide you with feedback on every unit you submit; therefore, it is important to implement the feedback you receive in the upcoming unit(s). You will be required to integrate an onlineresource in your final submission. The Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Reference Center is a good online database for this course project.
Our course project will be to develop a document titled A Permit By Rule (PBR) Application for an Interior Surface Coating Facility that will serve as a simulation of our work as a contract environmental engineer to a small vehicle body shop located in the state of Texas.
You have been contracted with a vehicle body repair shop named Texas Car Body Repairs, USA to engineer and write a state (Texas) air permit application for a carefully designed interior lining (painting) facility. According to Texas state law sand EPA laws, the facility must have an air permit before construction begins. Once the facility is completed, the construction air permit will then become the operational air permit for the facility. As a result, your client wants the air permit application to automatically align the interior surface coating facility into operational compliance with state and federal air quality laws. Consequently, it is extremely important for you to write the air permit application to meet the air permit criteria using the state guidance document and considering the equipment and chemicals already planned for the facility operations.
Your client has presented you with the following specifications regarding the facility operations plan:
