Quantifying the fumes from burning biomass
Both the Industrial Emissions Directive and the Medium Combustion Plant Directive require periodic monitoring of emissions, and these must be carried out by companies which have the appropriate accreditation (e.g. MCERTS).
We are often called in when plants are found to be exceeding their permitted emissions and in this situation we normally use test reports as a starting point for diagnosing the problem.
Monitoring emissions is also an important stage of the calibration of SCR systems and the sign-off of any new installation. SCR systems may incorporate emissions sensors and a data-logging facility which can be accessed remotely if required.
