Presenter Information
Gary D. McCutchen, RTP Environmental Associates
Gary D. McCutchen is a Principal with RTP Environmental Associates, Inc. Mr. McCutchen specializes in air pollution permitting, training, strategy development and resolution of issues including compliance and enforcement actions. He has over 45 years of experience in the air pollution field, including over four years as Chief of Colorado’s Engineering Unit (which was responsible for processing some 400 air pollution permit applications per year) and six years as Chief of EPA’s New Source Review Section, which was responsible for implementing the federal prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) and Nonattainment area major new source review (NSR) programs.  Mr. McCutchen is a registered Professional Engineer (P.E.) in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Iowa; a Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP); and a Board Certified Environmental Engineer (BCEE) of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists.

Based upon Mr. McCutchen’s Advanced New Source Review (NSR) Workshop, this new three-part webinar series will guide participants through practical application of PSD/Nonattainment NSR air permitting concepts using examples and case studies. Participants will receive a working knowledge of the basic PSD/NSR concepts, including PSD Program and Nonattainment NSR Applicability (including evaluating what constitutes a source and whether exemptions apply to a project); emissions increase calculations (Baseline Actual Emissions [BAE], Projected Actual Emissions [PAE]) for projects, including new, existing, debottlenecked units, and increased utilization netting; and, two analyses: ambient air increment consumption and Best Available Control Technology (BACT).



This series is a follow-up of our recent Webinar Series Permitting the Majors (or “BACT to Basics”) and is recommended for mid- to upper-level consultants, industry officials, and regulators / permit writers. Because it builds on the basic information covered in the previous webinar, this webinar is recommended only for attendees of the previous webinar and persons already familiar with the basics of NSR.
