Environmental Compliance Approval and Air Emissions Reporting

< Back

If your facility releases contaminants into the air or creates noise, you may need an Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) - formerly known as a Certificate of Approval (C of A), from the Ministry of Environment. Most industrial facilities require approval. Some examples where approvals are necessary: particulate emissions from a process, solvent emissions from a painting or manufacturing line and sound from an emergency generator.

Facilities that will release contaminants into the air or create noise, could require an Environmental Compliance Approval from the Ministry of Environment. The definition of a contaminant is very broad. Examples include particulate emissions from a process, solvent emissions from a painting line, nitrogen oxides from combustion sources, or sound from an emergency generator. Unless explicitly exempted, most industrial processes and equipment require approval.

An application for an Environmental Compliance Approval - ECA (formerly known as Air & Noise Certificate of Approval) will generally fall into the following categories: A minor amendment to an existing approval such as a name change or a correction that does not require technical review

Streamlined approvals for equipment that has known and predictable environmental impacts as outlined in the following list:
- Automotive Paint Spray Booths
- Emergency Generator Sets installed at commercial, institutional and municipal facilities
- Combustion Equipment installed at commercial, institutional and municipal facilities
- Cooling Towers installed at commercial, institutional and municipal facilities
- All other applications requiring technical review

SEL specializes in preparing documentation packages in support of applications for Environmental Compliance Approval  ((9({A((qaqq  a   (Air) for various industrial commercial and institutional Clients.
