CSE releases CEMS guidance manual to monitor industrial air pollution

New Delhi, Sept 26 (IBNS): In its effort to monitor, and thereby regulate, industrial air pollution, Centre for Science and Environment, a New-Delhi based environment research and advocacy body, in collaboration with International Labmate Limited-UK, Source Testing Association-UK, IEA-Clean Coal Centre- UK and FICCI, has organised a three-day conference and exhibition on effectively monitoring industrial emissions in India.

Following on from the series of CEM events, being held in Europe since 1997, CEM India is an attempt to provide in-depth information on Indian regulation and policy, guide lines, calibration and quality control on industrial emissions monitoring to delegates, government and industry representatives, manufacturers and other stakeholders.

The conference, besides presenting case-studies from both India and across the world on global best practices, installation procedures, data capture and data management, will offer an understanding of multiple perspectives, with presentations and talks by researchers, CEMS experts and manufacturers, regulators, and government and industry representatives.

Present at the first day of the conference were Harsh Vardhan, Minister, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India (MoEF&CC); Chandra Bhushan, Deputy Director General, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE);  William Averdieck, Chairman, Source Testing Association (STA) and S. P. Singh Parihar, Chairman, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), among other prominent attendees.

Bhushan, speaking on the release of CSE’s manual, ‘CEMS – Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems: A Technical Guidance Manual’, said, “The manual is a detailed technical guidance to CEMS in India and aims to serve as a supplement to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) guidelines on the issue. An effort to support the CEMS initiative of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) and CPCB, the manual covers all the major aspects of a successful CEMS programme and explains the available technology options, their suitability for an industry and the kind of certification, calibration and verification required."

"The manual also explains data acquisition, handing and compliance check mechanism that we need to put in place to ensure credibility of the system. CEMS regulations and best practices in Europe, US and those proposed in India have also been discussed in the manual. We, at CSE, strongly believe that the guidance manual will be useful for those willing to take adequate steps towards reducing emissions, help in skill and knowledge development of stakeholders and serve to be an informative guide to inspire proper and successful implementation of CEMS in India,” said he.
