First with MCERTS monitoring

A consultancy is claiming to be the first UK supplier of emissions monitoring equipment covering revised MCERTS certification version 3.3.

Air quality monitoring consultancy, Enviro Technology, has achieved what is calls an industry first by becoming the only UK supplier of Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) to meet the new regulations.

As part of stringent UK and European regulations, industrial companies regulated by the Environment Agency are required to measure emissions from their chimney-stacks, flues and ducts.

Under the recently renewed MCERTS certification for CEMS, the permitted levels allowed for certain gases have been tightened considerably for plants registered under the large Combustion Plants Directive (LCPD) and Waste Incineration Directive (WID).

Enviro Technology's sales and marketing director, Duncan Mounsor, said: "The revision of the MCERTS performance standards and test procedures for CEMS has to be a good thing for the industry ensuring that process operators continually strive to improve their performance and work on reducing their emissions levels.

"It is extremely gratifying to be the first specialist CEMS supplier in the UK to meet the very high, exacting standards of MCERTS revised 3.3 certification scheme.

"It is only a matter of time before the European Union tightens pollution limits further and the CEMS industry need to ensure it has the systems in place to help businesses and industries comply with what is an ever changing regulatory framework."
