Webinar Overview:

ICAC and MARAMA seek to collaborate once again to address the latest issues and technologies available to monitoring particulate matter stack emissions. Particulate matter continuous emissions monitoring systems (PM CEMS) is a commercially available technology and has been installed on sources in the Hazardous Waste Incineration, Rock Products, and Electricity Generating sectors. On this webinar, we will be discussing optical based and TEOM technologies only.

This webinar will endeavor to discuss:

  • The health and regulatory drivers for measuring total PM (filterable +condensable).
  • The operation principles of the various technologies;
  • Maintenance requirements and operation and maintenance costs and;
  • Reliability and accuracy of collected emissions data overtime in the context of real world experience.

Participants should be prepared for a robust questions and answers session with some of the leading PM CEMS technology suppliers. Our guest speakers will share their insights on how affected sources may comply and challenges they face implementing the ICI Boiler, Utility, and Cement National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollution (NESHAP) rules.

About ICAC:

The Institute of Clean Air Companies (ICAC) is the nonprofit national association of companies involved in stationary source air pollution emissions control and monitoring. ICAC represents the leading system and component suppliers of monitoring and control technologies for criteria and hazardous air pollutants. ICAC was formed in 1960 to promote the better understanding of the status and capabilities of air pollution control and monitoring technologies. ICAC works constructively with government, businesses, public, and private groups to ensure strong, flexible clean air policies that rest on a sound technical basis and that promote public health, environmental quality, and industrial progress.
