Stack Emission Monitoring & Testing.
Why Carry Out Stack Emission Monitoring ?
Stack emission monitoring is useful for a number of reasons, for example:
- Compliance with Local Authority and Environment Agency Permits.
- Similarly, compliance with the Waste Incineration Directive (WID) and Large Combustion Plant Directive.
- Calibration of continuous monitoring equipment.
- Proving the performance of abatement systems.

Quality in Stack Emission 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 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. In order to ensure correct, robust and repeatable results, we only use the methods specified by UKAS and MCERTS. These are detailed in Environment Document M2 – Technical Guidance M2.
