Emily Schilling specializes in assisting clients of all sizes with complex air quality matters. She applies technical skills honed through strategic partnerships with industrial, mining, and oil and gas companies to advise clients seeking to permit new projects and develop air quality compliance strategies, and to represent clients in enforcement actions before state agencies and the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
Emily has worked extensively with major source permitting in attainment and nonattainment areas, Clean Air Act (CAA) section 111 New Source Performance Standards, section 112 hazardous air pollutant (“HAP”) and Risk Management Plan (“RMP”) provisions, and the prohibitions on the manufacture and sale of mobile source defeat devices.
