annual reports of air pollutant emissions quantities from officially announced
Stationary air pollution source. (4) Inspection by air pollutant testing. (5) Control of
Fugitive Dust Air Pollution from Stationary Pollution Sources. (6) Holding
assemblies. (7) Control of Dioxin emissions. (8) Odor complains from citizens. (9)
Other work items.
This project was empowered by a contract which issued by the Bureau of
Environmental Protection, Tainan County. The project started from 10th January
2013 till 9th January 2014. This report concludes the outputs for each work items
from10th January 2013 till 9th January 2014. Summaries of each work items are as
1. Database establishment, upgrade and data QA/QC
The core task of this work item is maintain the emission inventory database update.
We renew 1113(100%) emission data and add 1 new emission data. A total of 1113
emission data had been key in in the system.
Annual emission amount is about 2561.6 ton of particles, 3920.7 tons of SOx, 5044.3
tons of NOx and 3199.1tons of VOCs.
2. Stationary Sources Permit application documents exam and issue,
including permit inquisition.
In the management and issuance of permits, 553 permits have been issued,
including 49 installation permits, 32 modified permits, 62 operation permits, 154
change permits, 175 renewed permits, 71 re-issued permits and 11 coal-fired permits.
Periodic inspection for operation permits has been performed on 821 operation
permits. Among them, 72 operation permits didn’t meet the contents of permits, and
the discrepancy of inspection was 8.7%. Further, the plants have been asked to
modify and improve the inconformity. 70 plants reported their modification or
changes, and got new permits which fit their status quo.
3. Check of annual reports of air pollutant emissions quantities from officially
announced Stationary air pollution source
360 stationary pollution sources are required to report annual emissions by
regulation in Tainan City. The reporting rate of it has reached 100%. Inspection for
reporting annual emissions was conducted on 311 plants; 93.9% of it proved
correct(292 plants),6.1% of it showed discrepancy(19 plants).
4. Inspection by air pollutant testing.
Inspection by air pollutant testing was performed to fulfill the midterm
requirement, 9 plumes for Dioxin testing, 5 plumes for heavy metal testing, and 12
plumes for SOx, NOx and particulate. We also took 30 fuel samples from different
plants to check if the sulfur in the sample violets the standard (0.5%). The results of
the total suspended particulate in ambient air times are in compliance with standards
5. Control of Fugitive Dust Air Pollution from Stationary Pollution Sources.
To inspect the industry that has been specified by management regulations for
fugitive particulate emissions on-site and to assist to improve. The first
comprehensive inventory completed within two months. We classified 215 factories
which listed in management for inspection. The inspection results show
concentration control can force high pollution manufacturers truly improvements.
6. Holding assemblies.
4 assemblies were held during this period. The first one is held for announcing
the new regulation of Green House Gas report for officially announced air pollution
sources. The second one is held for the regulated Fugitive Dust Air Pollution from
Stationary Pollution Sources, in order to make they understand how to comply with
the Management Regulations for Facilities to Control Fugitive Dust Air Pollution
from Stationary Pollution Sources.
7. Control of Dioxin emissions.
On-site inspection works had been performed on 56 plants with 73 stacks and 2 of
them were under Dioxin monitoring span supervision. The results demonstrated all
of them could meet the requirement and emission standard.
8. Odor complains from citizens
(1) Periodical check for the frequent odor complains factories list
of stationary sources.
(2) For those which were most possible polluted factories, we send
people to long stay in the factories.
9. Other work items
(1) 10 article of environmental protection news were posted.
(2) 30 cases of air pollution qualified persons replacement were
proposed and approved.
(3) Case Handling for the Notification of the Air Quality
Deterioration Total of 10 cases were notified during the project
period and patrol staffs were then sent out to check on 10 public
or private premises.
