This permission is crucial as it ensures that industries and businesses adhere to the necessary environmental compliance regulations and standards, thus preventing any harm to the environment and public health.  It is attained from the State Pollution Control Board under the Air and Water Act. 

In order to obtain a CTE, a business or industry must undergo a thorough assessment of its environmental impact, including an analysis of its waste management practices, water usage, air pollution control measures, and more.
