Microsoft® Excel® is widely used by environmental professionals in calculating emissions, compiling environmental reports, keeping operational records, and complying with permit limits. A properly designed spreadsheet can significantly reduce the time spent and potential errors in permitting, compliance and reporting tasks. In this 1-day workshop, new and seasoned environmental professionals learn to use advanced Microsoft Excel functions to streamline environmental tasks. Exercises throughout the class demonstrate real life applications of each function. Topics include:

Companies are required to perform proper tank emission calculations based on the methodology provided in U.S. EPA’s Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors (AP-42). This complicated process was previously facilitated by EPA’s tanks emissions estimation software, TANKS 4.09d. However, in 2014, EPA announced it would no longer maintain the TANKS 4.09d software. While TANKS 4.09d is still available on EPA's website, EPA States that the model should be "used at your own risk". Instead, EPA recommends using the equations/algorithms specified in AP-42 Chapter 7 for estimating VOC emissions from storage tanks. This one-day course covers VOC emission calculation methods based on the algorithms specified in AP-42 Chapter 7 and API Technical Report 2568, November 2007 and some local agency guidance.
The course provides a detailed look into air emission issues related to aboveground storage tanks and provides insight on best practices for emission calculations, regulatory compliance, and recordkeeping. Due to the complexity of the AP-42 Chapter 7 methodology and equations, the course will include demonstrations of popular tank emission calculation programs which follow the AP-42 methodology and will cover emissions estimates from fixed roof storage tanks and floating roof tanks. Attendees will be prepared with the TankESP program database version for practice. Some other hot spots (e.g., short term emission estimates, throughput determination, heated tanks) are also discussed. Finally, the course provides recommendations on how to improve tank data quality and the accuracy of emissions estimates.

This 2-day course provides a thorough overview of what CEMS are and how they work, the different types of CEMS, and technologies used to analyze emissions. It details why CEMS are used and the regulations that require their use to demonstrate compliance, and addresses best management practices to ensure reliability, accuracy, and efficient use of facility resources. The CEMS quality assurance plan (QAP) is also discussed in detail. The course is intended for environmental managers, CEMS technicians and managers, and anyone who works with CEMS or CEMS data on a regular basis.
