Air Pollution Monitoring and Control: EPA Bumps Up Enforcement Efforts

By Joy LePree |

Tighter enforcement requires up-to-date monitoring and control equipment With stricter emissions regulations on the horizon and with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA; Washington, D.C.; www.epa.gov) actively enforcing ones, the chemical process industries (CPI) can not sit back and relax. The EPA has been actively cracking down on the enforcement of existing regulations and is paying closer attention to reporting and quality assurance of the measurements and information being reported. So what does this mean for chemical processors? It necessitates the continued use of top-notch environmental monitoring and control technologies, as well as solutions that provide more accurate and timely reporting of data. This article examines the newest trends in monitoring, control, software and solutions designed to ensure compliance.   Monitoring instrumentation When it comes to monitoring, processors tend to be moving away from traditional instruments toward newer, more accurate and reliable methods, including laser-based devices. “The real challenge with traditional methods of monitoring is in the sample conditioning system, which includes the probe, the probe filter, the pump and associated moving parts,” explains Warren…
