- Prevention of Significant Deterioration
- Non-attainment New Source Review (NSR) requirements
- New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)
- National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)
- State-level Clean Air programs and permit rules
New NESHAPs for Petroleum RefineriesThe $425 million settlement comes after US EPA last week finalized new NESHAP requirements for oil refineries.

I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
