Potential to Emit (PTE) Session
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm      

Businesses are required to calculate their Potential to Emit (PTE) air contaminants to determine if they are subject to specific state and federal air quality regulations. Calculating PTE can be confusing because it is different than calculating actual emissions.  This afternoon workshop is ideal for those who want to understand why determining PTE is important and how to do it.  EGLE staff will take attendees step-by-step through calculating a facility's PTE. The workshop will also provide guidance on how to evaluate PTE to determine if a facility is a major or minor source of air pollution and which options are available to comply with the regulations.  All attendees will receive the PTE Workbook.
