Interactive 'New Source Review' (NSR) Air Quality Permitting Portal Launched Online

Citation Technologies to Power NSRonline®

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - November 19, 2008) - Citation Technologies joined forces with RTP Environmental Associates, Inc. to launch NSRonline® , a dynamic portal for EPA's environmental preconstruction permitting program. NSRonline will increase productivity of air quality professionals up to 20% thanks to an integrated collaboration platform and a clever set of productivity tools, such as the NSR portal search ability and the tracking of regulatory document changes. NSRonline® is a subscription-based Web service offering electronic access to the Advanced New Source Review Workshop course outline which summarizes, references, and hyperlinks to NSR documents. Over 1,000 documents and 13,300 pages of information are now provided to air quality professionals in an up-to-date, user-friendly dynamic portal.

"By referring to readily available descriptive sections and documents of the outline, a typical subscriber may cut the time spent on researching the issue by half. In addition, this will avoid digging through scattered agency resources (both online and archived paper documents) and interacting with several layers of agency staffers," explains Gary D. McCutchen, Principal, RTP Environmental Assoc., Inc., who played a critical role in the formation of the original NSR rules and is widely regarded as a national expert and leading authority on air pollution permitting, training, strategy development and resolution of issues, including compliance and enforcement actions.

Congress established the New Source Review (NSR) preconstruction permitting program as part of the 1977 Clean Air Act Amendments. The NSR program assures that any large, new, or modified industrial source in NSR-designated neighborhoods will be as clean as possible, and that advances in pollution control occur concurrently with industrial expansion. NSRonline® is the premier online reference for information on the Environmental Protection Agency's New Source Review (NSR) program. Professionals are now able to ensure with NSRonline® that air quality is not significantly degraded from the addition of new and modified factories, industrial boilers and power plants. A preconstruction permit specifies what construction is allowed, what emission limits must be met, and often how the emissions source must be operated. Citation Technologies' products drive down the cost and improve the overall global consistency and environment, safety and health risk management.
