Do your business operations include industrial processes such as painting, metal fabrication, welding, heat or chemical processes? These industrial processes typically generate environmental emissions that may or may not be regulated by the state or EPA. Featured below are the most common small business industry sectors with air, waste and/or water quality regulatory compliance requirements. Even some of the smallest businesses in these sectors are impacted. Compliance with these environmental regulations is the business’ responsibility, making it important for industries to seek assistance through their state SBEAP when needing help. For more industry sector compliance information, see the "General Industry Sector" resources.
