    "Simple, practical representation of complex ideas." - Antonio Inserni

    This seminar reviews the regulatory and technical issues in the field of continuous emissions monitoring (CEM). You will benefit from the seminar by learning about new developments in CEM systems and monitoring instrumentation and how current regulations impact that development.

    You will be able to:

    • Identify regulations that mandate the use of CEM systems
    • List and explain the applicability of analytical techniques used for the measurement of gases (NOx, SO2, CO2, and HCl), mercury, metals, particulate matter, and flue gas volumetric flow
    • Describe the applicability of sampling techniques (source-level extractive, dilution extractive, close-coupled, and in-situ) in the measurement of gases and particulate matter as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each
    • Identify technical and regulatory problems associated with monitoring emissions present at low concentration levels
    • Develop a program for specifying and purchasing a CEM system
    • Identify the key features necessary in a CEM system quality assurance plan

    You Will Cover:

    • Regulatory Requirements for CEM Systems: Implementing Regulations | NSPS | Acid Rain | NOx Budget | MACT
    • Status of Sampling Systems: Source Level Extractive Systems | Dilution Systems | In-situ Path Monitoring Systems
    • Status of Analytical systems: Electro-Optical and Electro-Chemical Techniques | Methods for Continuously Monitoring Particulate Matter | Metals Monitoring Techniques | Methods for Monitoring Organic Compounds
    • CEM Certification Requirements
    • Specifying and Purchasing a CEM System
    • Quality Assurance Plans: How to Write a CEM QA/QC Manual
