This website has been developed to serve as a resource for those seeking information about the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality’s (LDEQ) Emission Reduction Credits (ERC) banking program for the Baton Rouge area.  It is a joint effort of the Capital Region Planning Commission and the Baton Rouge Clean Air Coalition to facilitate air quality and transportation improvements as well as expand economic development in the Baton Rouge area. 

The website has been designed especially for those interested in participating in the ERC program through generation of credits through eligible emission reduction projects, banking/trading of credits, and employing credits for offsets needed for air quality permits for new projects and modifications of existing projects. 

An overview of the LDEQ Baton Rouge area ERC program is described on the ERC Program page through addressing:  regulatory background, project eligibility, credit certification, banking/trading of credits, use of credits for offsets in permitting, and some project examples.
