Continuous Emission Monitoring
In Continuous Emission Monitoring , you'll learn ...
- What is Part 75 and who must comply with it
- How a continuous emission monitoring system (CEMS) must be monitored
- Methodology for monitoring gas-fired and oil-fired units and peaking units
- Low mass emissions (LME) methodology
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established stack monitoring requirements under various programs including the Acid Rain Program (ARP), the NOx Budget Trading Program (NBP), the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and the Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR).
This course summarizes the monitoring requirements under each of these rules and outlines certification testing and QA/QC standards. The material provides a general overview of the EPA Part 75 Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) regulations and clarifies the technical provisions.
This course will be beneficial for engineers responsible for complying with the rule, as well as any professional working in the field of air pollution control who wants a general understanding of the emissions monitoring approach used in EPA’s emissions trading programs.
