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 Sept 2009, and will be ended on Sept 2010. 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 609 stationary pollution sources has been checked and updated. The percentage of this work item is 102%.
In the management and issuance of permits, 409 permits have been issued, including 39 installation permits, 10 modified permits, 57 operation permits, 116 change permits, 86 renewed permits, 98 re-issued permits and 3 coal-fired permits.
Periodic inspection for operation permits has been performed on 633 operation permits. Among them, 55 operation permits didn’t meet the contents of permits, and the discrepancy of inspection was 12.2%. Further, the plants have been asked to modify and improve the inconformity. 35 plants reported their modification or changes, and got new permits which fit their status quo. The percentage of improvement is 79.5%.
3. Report and check of air pollutant emissions quantities
269 stationary pollution sources are required to report annual emissions by regulation in Tainan County(1st batch: 91 plants and 2nd batch:178 plants). The reporting rate of it has reached 100% (from the beginning of 3st season to the end of 2nd season, 2010). Inspection for reporting annual emissions was conducted on 269 plants;75.1% of it proved correct(202 plants),24.9% of it showed discrepancy(67 plants).
4. Inspection by air pollutant testing
Inspection by air pollutant testing was performed to fulfill the midterm requirement, including 4 plumes for dioxin testing, 2 plume for Arsenic compound testing, 4 plume for heavy metals testing, and 8 plumes for SOx, NOx and/or VOCs. We also took 20 fuel samples from different plants to check if the sulfur in the sample violets the standard (0.5%) and 12 times area sampling for surrounding particulate matter.
5. Training for dedicated air pollution control personnel
A conference were held on December 29 2009, the performance of approval internet on-line apply for explanation meeting, attendance percentage 78% in Kun Shan University. On March 8 2009, the performance of stationary pollution source releases source of particulate pollutants air pollution control facilities management regulations, attendance percentage 72% in southern Taiwan science park adminstration. On July 16 2009, the performance of air quality serious deterioration countermeasures regulations explanation meeting, attendance percentage 73% in southern Taiwan science park adminstration.
6. Stationary source of particulate pollutants oven control
Inspection was performed for particulate pollutants control in 310 plants, had four stage statistics, during public awareness (January 8 2009 to June 30 2009), 31st December 2009, 31st March 2009, September 2009, respective.Inital showed public awareness control well.
For manufacturing processes of metal and nonmetal, manufacturing processes of metal had 117 plants, comply with percentage 81.2%. manufacturing processes of nonmetal had 91 plants, comply with percentage 34.1%. Due to pursuant to the following regulations had piling operating, convey operating, conveyance operating, manufacturing processes operating, in a nutshell all releases source of particulate pollutants management regulations items. Therefore, releases source of nonmetal management regulations plants list, lower conform to regulations.
7.General patrol ：Total of 162 times of patrol assignment were conducted.
8.South trade has been completed inventory operations to use arsenic compounds, currently only 6 of the family business who still use arsenide integrated. With the views of the main effects at the Department and the monitoring of the possible time variation of actual emissions, monitoring data from the simulation results and the comparison shows that South Park emission sources and emissions of arsenic has been largely mastered.
9. Other work items
(1) Five articles of environmental protection news were posted.
(2) 55 of air pollution control laws and regulations were printed.
(3) 137 cases of air pollution qualified persons replacement were proposed and approved.
(4) Case Handling for the Notification of the Air Quality Deterioration Total of 8 cases were notified during the project period and patrol staffs were then sent out to check on 58 public or private premises.
