INERIS report on accuracy of air emissions measurement

The report prepared by INERIS for CEWEP, ESWET and FEAD addresses the question of monitoring of air emissions, in particular in the framework of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED).

This report focuses on the reliability and accuracy of measurements at very low concentrations, which has significant implications on the drawing up of Best available techniques REFerence documents (BREFs) and the setting of IED-based BAT-Associated Emission Levels (BATAELs).

The monitoring issue needs to be taken into account very seriously before going further in the review process of Waste Incineration BREF and before official validations of Waste Treatment BREF and Reference Report on Monitoring.

The report is available in English here. Please contact us (info@cewep.eu) for further information.
