Importance of air pollution management is increasing for industrial facilities worldwide due to factors such as stricter regulations, ESG (Environmental Social Governance) frameworks, lower emission limit targets, local community relations, implementation of various carbon trading and compliance reporting programs.

In order to reduce emissions, they must first be accurately measured. Simple estimation techniques often prove to be ineffective. How do you know what your smoke stack is really releasing into the atmosphere? How do you audit the carbon credits that you wish to purchase from another business? “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it”

This is why governments all over the world have created regulations that mandate rules for Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) such as Alberta CEMS Code, Canadian EPS 1/PG/7, US EPA 40 CFR Part 60, European EN 14181, EN 17255, etc. These regulations are often complex and hard to interpret. Limesoft has seen many advances in gas analysis techniques in order to keep up with these demands, however the data management aspect is often overlooked. Data quality control and assurance is critically important as failure to accurately measure emissions can result in the facility underestimating pollution levels and facing considerable fines.
