Landfill Air Permitting and Compliance Engineer / Scientist

Published: 5/24/22

EIL performs air compliance and permitting for landfills across the country.  Our work includes compliance reporting, air data management and inventories, modeling, and preparing permits ranging from minor source general permits to major PSD applications.  We also assist our clients with gas system design and troubleshooting, as well as strategy development and regulatory review.   

We’re looking for someone with 2 to 10 years of air compliance and/or air permitting experience.  Familiarity with air modeling and state regulatory requirements for landfills in Midwest states is a plus, but not required (Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky).

Depending on your experience, you could play a variety of roles, from assisting senior staff to managing your own projects and clients, and mentoring less experienced members of our team. 

Career Development and Benefits

We take mentoring seriously – you’ll learn from some of the most respected names in the industry.  And you in turn will mentor others with less experience. 

We invest in our people to build their careers.  If you want to grow your technical skills and learn how to run a business, this is the place to be. 

Our benefits are top shelf and include all the usuals: medical insurance, 401k, etc.


EIL has offices in Glen Ellyn, Illinois (suburban Chicago) and Caledonia, Michigan (suburban Grand Rapids), but most of employees work from home which varies from Washington to Florida and many places in between.  Depending on your experience, you could have the option to work from home too.

Travel - typically day trips to project sites.
