The purpose of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s (BAAQMD) Regulation 12-15 is to track air emissions from petroleum refineries and their support facilities, such as hydrogen plants, sulfuric acid plants, and electrical generation plants, in the San Francisco bay area.
Towards that end, Regulation 12-15 requires an Annual Emission Inventory Report due on April 15 for the previous calendar year. The report provides a facility-wide emissions inventory of criteria pollutants, certain toxic air contaminants (TACs), and greenhouse gases (GHG).
Davenport Engineering began supporting Regulation 12-15 the very first year regulated facilities were required to submit emission inventory reports for calendar year 2016. We are the go-to resource for Regulation 12-15 support given our long history serving petroleum refineries and preparing emission inventory reports. These Regulation 12-15 reports are now among our standard body of seasonal emissions inventory work.
