Regulation 90 permitting in the City of Montreal: Atmospheric Emissions Quality and Control

industry pollution

(Regulation 90 – Regulation 2001-10 of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal)

The Law – Requirements of Regulation 90:

In addition to federal regulations, the City of Montreal has and enforces a separate set of regulations aimed at controlling air emissions from various sources in its metropolitan area.

This includes regular monitoring of the activities of industrial establishments and their atmospheric emissions. This involves assessing compliance, issuing a permit if necessary, and establishing a specific follow-up program for each licensed establishment. It may include monitoring, sampling, analysis, special maintenance requirements, and annual air emissions balance reports. This is not an extensive list as each situation is unique.

The requirements of Regulation 90 (Regulation 2001-10 of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal) include:

• The limits on pollutants discharged into the atmosphere and ambient air;
• Limits on sulfur content in various fuels;
• Emission requirements and limits for the waste disposal, incineration or combustion plants of various materials and various thermal processes;
• Emission limits, effluent efficiency standards and prohibitions for certain processes and activities;
• Requirements for diffuse particulate emissions;
• Requirements for emissions of organic substances generated during distribution, storage or leakage from equipment;
• Obligation to hold a permit where there can be emission (or change in the emission) of a polluting agent.
