Process of Stack Emissions Monitoring

Stack emissions monitoring is the process of air monitoring of an emission point. Typically, boiler stacks, large chimneys are monitored for stack emissions on a regular basis. Stack is said to be a chimney situated at a great height that dispels hazardous gases, polluted air and other particulate matters in the air. A severe and harmful effect can be seen due to such emissions and for this reason regulations are often necessary. This regulations comprises of measurement of the concentration of these pollutants in the air.

Importance of Stack Emissions Monitoring

Every manufacturing or operating unit of a company has a stack releasing pollutants in the atmosphere which increases the pollution. Hence, it becomes imperative for such companies to carry out the stack emission testing process. The frequency of conducting these tests differ from one industry to another. There are some companies which need to carry on the procedure on a weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly purely based upon the discharge levels of the pollutants in the environment. The companies emitting different levels of contamination get benefitted by operating within the environmental compliance. The CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) issues guidelines for the stack emission testing from time to time which encompasses frequency of testing, parameters, time of the year depending upon the extent of the pollution. The actual process of stack emission testing becomes necessary due to the following factors:

  1. Pollutants released in the air should be checked to understand ,if the environmental standards as declared by CPCB are fulfilled.
  2. Process efficiency and control is measured by the pollutants released in the air and this has to be monitored and the data to be archived.
  3. Maintaining the emission records of the data of the pollutants released in the air is important for the industry.
  4. The data collected about the pollution levels need to be preserved and submitted for the environmental impact assessment surveys.
  5. It is mandatory for the industries to submit stack emission monitoring reports to the CPCB at regular intervals.

Testing Procedure of Stack Emissions Monitoring

The testing procedure for stack emissions include a precise measurement of the pollutants in the air and even following the protocols to collect representative data of the total pollutants released in the atmosphere in a specific time period. A perfect measurement of pressure created, moisture, gases, velocity, temperature becomes important during the stack monitoring procedure. The ideal measurement of flow of gases, accurate weight and volume of samples collected forms a relevant part of the testing process.
