AAPCA Seeks Nominations for 2022 Best Practices in Air Pollution Control

Do you know of innovative practices or exemplary operations in the field of air pollution control?

The Association of Air Pollution Control Agencies (AAPCA) is seeking nominations from public agencies, private entities, and individuals to identify groundbreaking technology, innovative practices, and exemplary operations in the field of air pollution control. Of particular interest are activities that are directly transferrable to the operation of an air pollution control agency.

How to Nominate

Anyone can identify and recommend that a certain organization, control technology, or operation be identified as a “Best Practice.” To apply, fill out the form available on AAPCA’s website to provide the required information for the best practice nomination. The deadline to submit nominations is 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday, April 22, 2022 Friday, May 6, 2022. AAPCA has extended the deadline to Friday, May 13.

Evaluation Process

AAPCA’s Best Practices Committee will evaluate each nomination for a “Best Practice” on a scale of 0 – 100. Nominations receiving a score of 85 or higher will be recommended as a “Best Practice.”

Sharing of Information

The purpose of having “Best Practice” recognition is to transfer information to various parties to expand the best practices to a larger group of people. The sponsor of the “Best Practice” will be invited to give a presentation at the AAPCA 2022 Fall Business Meeting, scheduled for September 28 – 30 in Raleigh, North Carolina. In addition, the Best Practices information will be provided on the public version of the AAPCA website.


Any questions on the process may be directed to AAPCA’s Executive Director at jsloan@csg.org or the Chairperson of the AAPCA Best Practices Committee at Robert.Hodanbosi@epa.ohio.gov.
