REGISTER FOR THE MAERS WEBINAR SERIES

The Michigan Air Emissions Reporting System (MAERS) is the web-based application used in the annual collection of emission data from permitted sources/facilities in Michigan. The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) Air Quality Division maintains MAERS Reports for commercial, industrial, and governmental sources of air pollution in Michigan.

EGLE is hosting this four-part webinar series for new or inexperienced users of MAERS. We will also cover things you can do to make next year’s transition to MiEnviro Portal easier. Registration includes access to all four parts of the series. A recording will be provided to registrants after each webinar concludes.


MAERS Part 1 - Introduction to MAERS: Access, Navigation and the Source and Contact tabs
January 17, 2023 | 10 - 11:30 AM

In this webinar we will be discussing why MAERS is required for some facilities, what the data is used for and how the system works. We will talk about various resources available to the user and how to access the system. This webinar will finish up with how to navigate the system and what information is required for the Source and Contact tabs.

MAERS Part 2 - Setting the table: the Emission Unit, Reporting Group, and Stack tabs 
January 17, 2023 | 1 - 2:30 PM

This webinar will include a brief synopsis of the Part 1 content; however, the focus will be on how to complete the Emission Unit, Reporting Group and Stack tabs. There are some emission units and process equipment that must be reported and some you may not have to worry about. The way you enter this information is important too, either making your reporting easier or harder.

MAERS Part 3 - The meat of it: the Activity and Emissions portion
 January 19, 2023 | 10 - 11:30 AM

This webinar will begin with a brief synopsis of the Part 2 content. Part 3 of the series will focus on what information needs to be reported as an "activity" and how that helps MAERS calculate your emissions. Most of the time entering your information can be simple, but what if your emission unit has multiple activities and emits numerous pollutants? We will discuss using MAERS calculated emissions versus your actual emissions. The end of the webinar will show you how to get your own reports out of the system.

MAERS Part 4 - Dessert is for everyone! Additional reporting of control equipment 
January 19, 2023 | 1 - 3 PM

All facilities subject to the requirement to report emissions must also submit additional information for control equipment. All facilities will receive a spreadsheet separate from MAERS with last reporting year's data pre-filled. This webinar will detail how to review your spreadsheet and resources available to submit this information. Various examples of what should be reported, from some very straightforward situations to more complex situations, will be discussed. The webinar will end with a question-and-answer session designed to help facilities get the information they need. 


NOTE: For those already familiar with MAERS but in need of a little review, EGLE will provide a pre-recorded MAERS Review webinar in the near future. Stay tuned for more info!
