On September 22, 2015 Alliance Source Testing’s (AST’s) Decatur, AL Laboratory (AST Lab Services) received its certificate of accreditation to The National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Council (NELAC) Institute (TNI) standards from the Louisiana Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (LELAP). Under this accreditation, AST can internally perform all Particulate Matter determinations for our customers. This eliminates the costs and delays of using a subcontract laboratory, while providing the same level of accredited services as an external lab. Operations in the 2,000 sq. ft. lab are managed by Heather Morgan, who with her eight (8) years of PM analysis experience is capable of managing up to 150 samples per week. Laboratory Technical Director Jordan Laster indicated that “Receiving this [accreditation] is the result of hundreds of man-hours dedicated to detailing, refining, and documenting laboratory procedures. This is an important step to providing accredited services to customers in all states that have accreditation requirements. Special thanks are due to Heather Morgan and our QA Manager, Brandy Hughes for their efforts.” Currently, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas, Virginia, New York require that an analytical laboratory be accredited to the TNI standards for PM analysis, however other states are expected to join the TNI program. Regardless of requirements it is an advantage to all clients to use an accredited lab in case any technical or quality issues arise.

On August 3, 2015, President Obama and EPA announced the Clean Power Plan – a historic and important step in reducing carbon pollution from power plants that takes real action on climate change. Shaped by years of unprecedented outreach and public engagement, the final Clean Power Plan is fair, flexible and designed to strengthen the fast-growing trend toward cleaner and lower-polluting American energy. With strong but achievable standards for power plants, and customized goals for states to cut the carbon pollution that is driving climate change, the Clean Power Plan provides national consistency, accountability and a level playing field while reflecting each state’s energy mix. It also shows the world that the United States is committed to leading global efforts to address climate change.
