2017 Annual Emissions Report Forms Were Emailed to Companies January 5th

Annual Emissions Reports Are Due May 1st

Beginning with the 2017 reporting year, the Bureau of Air stopped mailing paper Annual Emissions Reports (AER). Instead, Illinois EPA sent each facility’s report to them via e-mail as a PDF attachment for viewing and printing using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.

On January 5, 2018, permitted sources should have received an email from Buzz Asselmeier containing their 2017 Annual Emissions Report forms that are due to the Illinois EPA by May 1st. If you have not received your facility’s 2017 report form, it is possible it was sent to your junk or spam folders. To help ensure you receive future communications regarding your AER, we recommend you add to your address book. If you have not received your report, please e-mail Buzz Asselmeier.

If your contact information changes for your facility’s Annual Emissions Report, changes can be submitted here.

If you have questions about your report or need assistance, contact the Illinois EPA Bureau of Air at 217-524-0934 or the Illinois Small Business Environmental Assistance Program at 800-252-3998 or

SBEAP TIP: Consider creating a dedicated e-mail address like or for official government correspondence. This would help ensure your company continues to receive regulatory reports, billings and other notifications when staffing changes occur. Topical or dedicated e-mail addresses eliminate the need for updating multiple agencies of staff/contact changes, reduce the chances of the communications being lost or overlooked, and could allow multiple users to have access to important email communications.
