    Emissions Inventory

    The National Emissions Inventory (NEI) is a detailed estimate compiled by the US EPA of air emissions that include criteria pollutants and hazardous air pollutants from air emissions sources. Emissions inventory data for all Part 70 major source facilities are collected on a three year cycle, while a subset of facilities must report on an annual basis.

    Starting this year, Georgia will be using the Combined Air Emissions Reporting System (CAERS) for the 2019 Emissions Inventory data collection. The Emissions Inventory submittal is due on or about June 30 each year.

    Emissions Statement

    Facilities in the Atlanta metro maintenance area whose NOx and/or VOC actual emissions are greater than 25 tons per year are required to submit an annual Emissions Statement (ES).

    The Emissions Statement is due on or about June 15 each year.

    Permit Application Fees

    Permit application fees are required when applying for certain permit actions. Refer to the Air Permit Fee Manual to determine what type of fee is due when submitting a permit application.

    Permit application fees are owed in addition to any annual fees described below.

    Annual (Emissions) Fees

    Annual permit fees are required for Synthetic Minor and Part 70 sources, and certain NSPS sources. The Air Permit Fee Manual provides instructions and should be used to calculate fee amounts.

    The emission fee process begins July 1 each year, and the deadline for fee submittal is on or about September 1.
