Presentation Notes


The use of engines and computers for data mining or crypto currency production has increased greatly in the last few years. Donald will discuss the expansion of this industry into the oil and gas industry and the Clean Air Act regulatory and permitting implications for these operations, particularly as they occur on Tribal Lands within the jurisdiction of EPA Region 8.
