IDEM > Forms > EC-02 - Transfer of Emission Credits EC-02 - Transfer of Emission Credits

Purpose

The purpose of EC-02 (state form 51784) is to provide information regarding the transfer of emission credits. Two versions of the form are available on the IDEM Forms page:

  • The Microsoft Word version of EC-04 may be completed electronically
  • The Adobe PDF version of EC-04 may be completed by hand (or typed).

EC-02 is a required form for submitting information to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), Office of Air Quality (OAQ) for the Emission Credit Registry. For the purposes of this form, the term "source" refers to the plant as a whole and NOT to individual emissions units.

Note: The role of IDEM in the transfer will be limited to providing information on the documentation and registration of emission credits and to providing technical assistance regarding possible future use of the credits being transferred.

If you have any questions, contact the IDEM, OAQ Permit Reviewer of the Day at (317) 233-0178 or 1-800-451-6027 extension 3-0178 (toll free call within Indiana).

Copies of your air permit application packet must be submitted to IDEM, OAQ, Air Permits, Policy and Guidance (original and 2 copies), your local library (1 copy), and, if applicable, your regional office (1 copy). IDEM regional office addresses are posted on the IDEM website. The mailing address is:
