Best Available Control Technology (BACT) Main Page


To obtain a permit from AQMD, owners and/or operators of equipment that emits air contaminants may be required to comply with the new source review (NSR) requirements of AQMD's Regulation XIII or Rule 2005.   One possible requirement is the application of Best Available Control Technology (BACT).  

The links in the left border of this page provide access to information about what BACT is, how it is determined, and the BACT Guidelines for common types of equipment.
