Why Carry Out Stack Emission Monitoring & Testing?
Stack emission monitoring can be useful for a number of 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 set 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 experience in stack emission monitoring. During that time we have measured from a very wide 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. The UKAS website shows our Scope.
We pride ourselves in being nice 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 UKAS and MCERTS. Furthermore, our reports contain each step that we use to obtain the test result. So we include 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 send reports in either PDF or hard copy format. 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. 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. 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.
