Air Compliance Advisor

The Air Compliance Advisor (ACA) was developed under a combined effort from the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), the Army Corps of Engineers’ Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL), and Argonne National Laboratory. Funding for the ACA was acquired through the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), an interagency alliance of the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, and the EPA. Five years and almost $3 million in development went into the development of ACA.

The ACA is a powerful series of interlinked databases, libraries, and scientific algorithms that allow the user to input specific information about a pollution source and derive the source’s pre-control levels of pollution for VOCs, NOx, PM, and SO2. This program also provides the sizing and installed cost of any feasible control devices needed to achieve a desired level of pollutant abatement - employing the identical methodology used throughout the EPA Air Pollution Control Cost Manual. Lastly, the ACA allows for dynamic "what-if" analyses to rapidly develop creative strategies for pollution control - including some pollution prevention alternatives. The number of pollution prevention alternatives will continue to expand as ISEG continues to maintain and improve this tool.
