Clearing the Air: How to Hold Petrochemical and Other Major Air Pollution Sources Accountable Through Title V Permits


Jun 20, 2024


2:00 pm - 3:00 pm




Halt the Harm

Did you know that most major polluting petrochemical facilities are required to obtain Title V permits under the federal Clean Air Act?

These permits are crucial to detecting violations and enforcing air pollution limits at these facilities and other major air pollution sources. ​Title V permits present an important opportunity for grassroots leaders to organize to hold polluting facilities accountable to federal clean air standards and for communities to demand to know what is in the air they breathe.

​To help grassroots leaders organize around Title V permits, in this webinar they’ll explain the permitting process and potential strategies you can use to strengthen the protections, or receive them in the first place. You’ll learn the basic elements to look for in Title V permit applications, how to get your EPA regional office involved in challenging inadequate permits, and when and how to engage in the process. Also discussing how to check whether facilities that should have title V permits in fact have them.

​During these presentations, they will be drawing on examples of successful campaigns around Title V permits for steel facilities and how they apply to challenging petrochemical facilities.
