Air Emissions: Overcoming Monitoring & Control Challenges

By Joy LePree |

Modern technology tackles CPI’s air-emissions concerns Air emissions monitoring and control is a major concern for all chemical processors, but the product being manufactured, the process used to make it, the resulting byproducts and pollutants, and the location of a facility and associated regulatory mandates all dictate the specific methods or technologies that must be employed to monitor and control air emissions at each facility. As a result, monitoring and control requirements vary greatly from processor to processor, and from location to location. However, there are several across-the-board challenges regarding air emissions monitoring and control in the chemical process industries (CPI). Here, monitoring and control technology experts discuss the issues of concern and the solutions they’ve designed to ease the burden of compliance.   Challenge: unreliable data “In today’s regulatory climate, just monitoring for air pollutants isn’t enough,” says Hank Braly, vice president of sales and marketing with Mocon-Baseline (Lyons, Colo.; www.baseline-mocon.com). “Processors have to be sure they’re getting good data out of their instruments and, too often, we hear that there’s a lack of confidence in the accuracy…
