Why Carry Out Stack Emission Monitoring & Testing?
Stack emission monitoring can be useful for several reasons. These are mostly to comply with the limits set in part A1, A2 and part B permits, but can also be:
- To comply with the limits specified in WID and LCPD.
- For the calibration of CEMs.
- To show you how well your abatement systems are working.
- For your environmental management system.
- To allow your company to field complaints.
Why choose Synergy for Stack Emission Monitoring
Our MCERTS Level 2 staff have about 40 years of experience in stack emission monitoring. During that time, we have measured from a vast range of industries and processes. As a result, we have a wealth of knowledge in the field. Our stack testing service can measure all of the major pollutants. These include particulates, volatile organic compounds, acid gases, combustion gases, Metals, dioxins, and furans.
We pride ourselves in being friendly people to work, but that doesn’t mean we are unprofessional. From your first inquiry to the final report, we provide a service second to none. We work hard for our clients to make sure that we fully understand their goals and deliver them on time.
Stack Emission Monitoring Reports
Our reports contain all of the details required by the MCERTS format. Furthermore, our reports include each step that we use to obtain the test result. So we show all of the measurements taken on-site and the results from the analysis of the samples. For this reason, all of our work is easy to check for the end-user.
Often the sample points do not comply with the test standard. For this reason, we also give a full list of how to improve the sampling in the future.
Our standard report turnaround is 15 working days from the end of the site work. We can send them in either PDF or hard copy format. Please contact us for an example.
Quality in Monitoring.
Accurate and robust stack emission testing starts with good access to correctly positioned ports. So, if your stack doesn’t already have access ports, read our Port and Platform Advice Note.

Further advice is available in Environment Agency Guidance note M1 – sampling requirements for monitoring. Use of the right methods and sampling procedures is vital in emission monitoring. To ensure correct, robust and repeatable results, we only use the methods specified by The Environment Agency. They detail these in their document Technical Guidance M2.
