Stack Emission Monitoring & Testing.

Why Carry Out Stack Emission Monitoring ?

Stack emission monitoring can be required for a number of reasons. These include:

  • Compliance with Local Authority and Environment Agency Permits.
  • Compliance with the Waste Incineration Directive (WID) and Large Combustion Plant Directive.
  • Calibration of continuous monitoring equipment.
  • Proving the performance of abatement systems.

Our stack emission monitoring reports contain all of the details required by the UKAS and MCERTS performance standard. In addition, our reports contain all of the calculations used to obtain the test result. This means that all of our work is easy to check by the end user.  Our standard report turnaround is 10 working days from the end of site work and can be provided as a PDF file or as a bound hard copy. Please contact us for an example of our stack testing report.

Quality in Stack Emission Monitoring.

Accurate and robust stack emission testing starts with good access to correctly positioned ports. If your stack doesn’t already have access ports, help is given in our Port and Platform Advice Note. More advice is given in Environment Agency Guidance note M1 – sampling requirements for stack emission monitoring.

Use of the right methods and sampling procedures is vital in emission monitoring. In order to ensure correct, robust and repeatable results, we only use the methods specified by UKAS and MCERTS. These are detailed in The Environment Agency Guidance M2 – monitoring of stack emissions to air.
