Environmental Defense Fund

At various points throughout EPA’s Compressor White Paper (“Compressor Paper”), 1 the agency presents component level emissions factors for compressors (i.e., seal emissions), aggregate emissions factors for compressors (i.e., factors for wet seal centrifugal compressors and reciprocating compressors), and national emissions estimates for compressor emissions across segments. Each one of these emissions estimates is important for different reasons. For instance, component level emissions factors provide an indication of the relative importance of different compressor emissions sources like vented seal emissions and leaks. These component level factors also help identify technologies available to mitigate emissions described later in the paper. Aggregate compressor emissions factors and national emissions estimates, conversely, help to characterize the magnitude of emissions from compressors and the emissions reductions achievable by deploying various technologies.

GOVERNMENT AGENCIES DESERVE A BETTER WAY TO PENTEST

whitePaper | June 10, 2022

The public sector is feeling the squeeze between an increase in cyber attacks and a lack of increased resources to keep up. In a recent survey conducted on behalf of SolarWinds, public sector respondents reported increased concern over ransomware, malware and phishing the most over the previous year, but time to detection and resolution had not improved for the majority.1 To bolster application security, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memorandum directing agencies to identify critical software and implement the latest protections outlined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Another OMB memorandum presented a federal zero trust architecture (ZTA) strategy that requires agencies to meet specific cybersecurity standards and objectives by the end of FY2024.
