Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) solution is proven to meet complex regulations worldwide, including Swiss OAPC, US EPA part 60/75, EN 17255, KSA RCER and PME, Alberta CEMS code, and Canadian 1/EPS/PG7. AML- CEMS is a powerful and robust software application package that can store, analyze, visualize and report environmental data from various sources. The main goal of Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) is to demonstrate environmental regulatory compliance of various industrial sources of air pollutants. The main pollutants measured by a Continuous Emission Monitoring System include carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), hydrogen chloride (HCI), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ozone (O3) and heavy metals such as mercury (Hg).
CEMS can also be set up to monitor other parameters of a site’s flue gas effluent in order to reveal insights into its day-to-day functioning. These include such variables as the airflow in the sample. These data can help to produce readings of contamination concentration on a mass per hour basis.
AML-CEMS helps your company manage environmental audit risks, save time with maintaining the CEMS analyzers and preparing regulatory reports, and significantly assist with environmental accountability and compliance as part of the corporate sustainability policies and procedures.
Monitoring emissions is nowadays a hot topic through the energy transition. In response to the call for climate change activism among government regulations, the cost of CO2 emissions is going to increase, at least in the European Union, which is decreasing the number of free allowances and increasing the tax on CO2 emissions. The European Union is charged with reducing emissions by 55% by 2030. The main goal is to demonstrate environmental regulatory compliance with various industrial sources of air pollutants to avoid high penalties and fines.
There is a reason that there are government regulations about the limit of emissions. On the one hand, a high concentration of contaminants like CO2 has a negative impact on the air quality levels in the vicinity of the site. On the other hand, specific pollutants like methane and CO2 are particularly damaging to the plant. Collectively known as greenhouse gases (GHGs), these contaminants help to trap heat in the environment and contribute to global warming. That’s the reason why the emissions must reduce by 55% by 2030.
Generally speaking the main pollutants measured by CEMS include carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), hydrogen chloride (HCI), particulate matter (PM), volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), ozone (O3) and heavy metals such as mercury (Hg).
Continuous Emission Monitoring System software will read data from the database, process and validate measured values, calculate corrected gas concentrations, compute required averages, and provide data visualization, and reporting capabilities. It is used to meet regulatory compliance requirements such EPS 1/PG/7, US EPA Part 60 & Part 75, MCERTS, and various local permit specifications. The following is an overview of the features:
