The Air Quality Control General Permit for Soil Vapor Extraction Units is a renewal of the current permit. The Soil Vapor Extraction Units General Permit covers stationary or portable facilities. Facilities permitted under the proposed Soil Vapor Extraction Units General Permit may emit the following air contaminants: particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, hydrochloric acid, dioxins, furans and volatile organic compounds.
