Small business facilities that are required to submit annual air emissions inventory reports, often referred to as AIMS, need to do so by March 1, 2023. Those small business facilities that asked to report are often classified as Synthetic Minor facilities of air emissions.
How to Report
Paper reporting for Air Emission Statement (AES) reports has been discontinued. Thus, reporting is done through AES Online which one needs to have an account with DEP’s GreenPort to access.
Facilities in Allegheny County no longer report their annual emissions using GreenPort as these facilities should now use Allegheny County Health Department’s (ACHD) Regulated Entities Portal (REP).
