Does the institution have policies and/or guidelines in place to improve outdoor air quality and minimize air pollutant emissions from mobile sources?:
A brief description of the policies and/or guidelines to improve outdoor air quality and minimize air pollutant emissions from mobile sources:
No mobile source program exists.
Has the institution completed an inventory of significant air emissions from stationary sources on campus?:
A brief description of the methodology(ies) the institution used to complete its air emissions inventory:
Air emission sources are permitted by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD). These primarily include our diesel standby emergency generators and natural gas fired boilers from 2-10 MM/BTU/hr. Program includes permitting of new equipment, testing, limited run times (for emergency generators), inspections, routine maintenance, etc.
BAAQMD permitted source emissions include:
Particulates, organics, NOx, CO for emergency generators
NOx and CO for gas fired boilers.
Weight of the following categories of air emissions from stationary sources::
|Weight of Emissions|
|Nitrogen oxides (NOx)||---|
|Sulfur oxides (SOx)||---|
|Carbon monoxide (CO)||---|
|Particulate matter (PM)||---|
|Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs)||---|
|Ozone-depleting compounds (ODCs)||---|
|Other standard categories of air emissions identified in permits and/or regulations||---|
A brief description of the institution’s initiatives to minimize air pollutant emissions from stationary sources, including efforts made during the previous three years:
Complying with our BAAQMD permit conditions is the extent of our program.
