Environment: Air Quality & GHG

Growing public concern about climate change and air quality requires a more stringent approach to meeting evolving regulations. PlaceWorks helps clients navigate these critical decisions with individually tailored, state-of-the-art air quality and greenhouse gas analyses and modeling for environmental processing under CEQA and NEPA. We obtain and make use of key data from the California Energy Commission, the California Air Resources Board, and the Energy Information Administration. Our staff also has a strong technical grasp of modeling tools and protocols (including CalEEMod, EMFAC, ISCST3, AERMOD, Off-Road, Caline, and WARM) for quantifying air quality parameters and GHG emissions.
