Air Permits and Registrations
Does your operation release any emissions into the air (such as exhaust from burning fuel or airborne chemicals from processes or operations)? Whether a permit or registration is needed will depend on how much and what kind of emissions are being released, as well as where in the state the operation is located.
Air State Facility Permits (ASF)-These permits may be required by medium-sized commercial or industrial facilities or larger facilities that have agreed to limit emissions.
Air Title V (ATV) Facility Permits-These permits may be required at the largest facilities statewide, or at facilities located in those areas where state implementation plans are in place to improve air quality.
Air Facility Registrations (AFR)-A registration may be required for smaller operations that release emissions to the air, such as dry cleaners or body shops, or other operations which use equipment that can create emissions.
