The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority provides financing for new air quality facilities for all types of Ohio businesses, ranging from small, family-owned shops to multi-million-dollar manufacturing plants. Many large Ohio companies, in fact, are required to purchase new equipment or make operational changes to comply with EPA air quality regulations. Smaller companies of 100 or fewer employees may also need to make similar changes. The Clean Air Resource Center is the small-business program of OAQDA, providing free, confidential consultation and financing.
Qualifying projects include any project involving the use of renewable or biomass resources, including ethanol and other biofuel production plants.
