INERIS report on accuracy of air emissions measurement

ESWET together with CEWEP and FEAD are pleased to publish a report prepared by INERIS Institute addressing the question of air emissions monitoring within the Industrial Emissions Directive. The report focuses on reliability and accuracy of monitoring at very low concentrations, which has significant implications on the drawing up of Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reference documents (BREFs) and the setting of BAT Associated Emission Levels.

We consider that the monitoring issue must be very seriously taken into account before going further in the review process of Waste Treatment BREF and Waste Incineration BREF and before official validation of Large Combustion Plants BREF and Reference Report on Monitoring.

The report is available in French (authorative language version) and English.
