The main work items of Stationary air pollution source control project are:(1)Database establishment, system function upgrade and data QA/QC. (2)Stationary Sources Permit application documents exam and issue, including permit inquisition. (3) Report and check of air pollutant emissions quantities. (4)Inspection by air pollutant testing. (5)Training for dedicated air pollution control personnel.(6) Stationary source of particulate pollutants oven control.
This project was empowered by a contract which issued by the Bureau of Environmental Protection, Tainan County. The project started on July 2008, and will be ended on July 2009. The percentage of the project is 100%. The progress for each work task is outlined in detail as below.
1.Database establishment, system function upgrade
For the work of emission inventory database update, the data of 611 stationary pollution sources has been checked and updated. The percentage of this work item is 102%.
In the management and issuance of permits,587 permits have been issued, including 48 installation permits, 18 modified permits, 89 operation permits, 159 change permits, 119 renewed permits, 147 re-issued permits and 7 coal-fired permits.
Periodic inspection for operation permits has been performed on 608 operation permits. Among them, 60 operation permits didn’t meet the contents of permits, and the discrepancy of inspection was 9.9%. Further, the plants have been asked to modify and improve the inconformity. 58 plants reported their modification or changes, and got new permits which fit their status quo. The percentage of improvement is 96.9%.
3. Report and check of air pollutant emissions quantities
271 stationary pollution sources are required to report annual emissions by regulation in Tainan County(1st batch: 93 plants and 2nd batch: 178 plants). The reporting rate of it has reached 100% (from the beginning of 2nd season to the end of 1st season, 2009). Inspection for reporting annual emissions was conducted on 257 plants;76.6% of it proved correct(197 plants), 21.8% of it showed discrepancy(56 plants).
4. Inspection by air pollutant testing
Inspection by air pollutant testing was performed to fulfill the midterm requirement, including 5 plumes for dioxin testing, 2 plume for Arsenic compound testing, 6 plume for heavy metals testing, and 8 plumes for SOx, NOx and/or VOCs. All results show compliance with emission standards. We also took 20 fuel samples from different plants to check if the sulfur in the sample violets the standard (0.5%), and the result shows that 1 sample violets the standard.
5. Training for dedicated air pollution control personnel
A conference were held on January 6, 2009, for the purpose of regulation announcement with the topic of the training for dedicated air pollution control personnel. The attendance percentage for this conference was 93%.
6. Stationary source of fugitive particulate pollutants oven control
Inspection was performed on 230 plants for fugitive particulate pollutants oven control. 71 plants possess piling sites without pollution control measures. There are 43 plants that possess transportable operations without pollution control measures. There are 20 plants that possess conveyance operations without pollution control measures. There are 20 plants that possess Process operations without pollution control measures. There are 5 plants that possess heating operations without pollution control measures.
7.General patrol ：Total of 542 times of patrol assignment were conducted.
8. Other work items
(1) Ten articles of environmental protection news were posted.
(2) 25 of air pollution control laws and regulations were printed.
(3) 132 cases of air pollution qualified persons replacement were proposed and approved.
(4) Case Handling for the Notification of the Air Quality Deterioration Total of 54 cases were notified during the project period and patrol staffs were then sent out to check on 58 public or private premises.
