Special Report: Process/Plant Optimization

Deploying software-based emissions monitoring systems for refining processes

It is important that efficient and reliable tools for acquiring emissions data are available. Environmental constraints not only can affect production, but failure to provide emissions values for extended periods may lead to an authority-imposed plant shutdown.

In the process industries, legal requirements regulate the continuous acquisition of emissions data to monitor and control pollutants released into the atmosphere. From a plant owner’s perspective, it is important that efficient and reliable tools for acquiring emissions data are available. Environmental constraints not only can affect production, but failure to provide emissions values for extended periods may lead to an authority-imposed plant shutdown. Typical plant continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMSs) are essentially hardware-based. They normally include analyzers to sample and identify the compositions of released flue gas, and an IT infrastructure to manage, record
