Clean Air Engineering (

Clean Air Engineering is a company built around a principle-- environmental responsibility and economic prosperity go hand in hand. Since 1972 we've helped hundreds of companies around the world realize this essential truth-- sometimes in small ways, sometimes in very substantial ways. In the process, we developed an unsurpassed reputation for engineering excellence and delivering the highest value to our customers.

First and foremost Clean Air is people. We pride ourselves on the superior training and experience of our technical staff -- unrivalled in the industry. Founded in 1972, our experience over the years in a wide variety of process environments gives our engineers and technicians a unique ability to provide high value to our customers. We deliver more than data -- we uncover the knowledge and information hidden in the numbers that turns environmental costs into bottom line benefits.

While Clean Air offers many compliance-related services, we are not really in the compliance business. To our customers, compliance is not the goal -- it is the starting point for continual environmental improvement. Our objective in working with our customers is to enhance both environmental and financial performance.

How do we do this? Those unfamiliar with Clean Air Engineering may look at a list of our services and try to fit us into a predetermined niche. We hear this all the time - "Oh, you people are the instrument rental company" or "Don't you do precipitator optimizations?" or "I know you. You're a stack testing company."

The truth is that we do all these things and a lot more. Our strength, our uniqueness, lies not in our separate pieces but in the synergy that comes from bringing these pieces together to form an integrated whole.
There's an old saying that goes "If your only tool is a hammer, all your problems look like nails." Clean Air has the tools to approach problems from many angles, and in doing so, to find better solutions.
