The heat sources used in power plants vary from traditional fossil fuels to renewables. Depending on the used fuel and implemented reduction systems, the flue gas emissions generally include carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), dust and mercury. Power plants need to monitor these emissions continuously according to local emission regulations.
Gasmet Continuous Emission Monitoring system CEMS ll e and Continuous Mercury Monitoring system CMM are both certified systems designed for demanding emission monitoring measurements.
In 2017, Best Available Techniques Conclusions for Large Combustion Plants (LCP BREF) was published. The document specifies new measuring requirements and emission limits for LCPs with a total rated thermal input exceeding 50MW. Gasmet has made a summary of the document: Changes and New Methods in Emission Monitoring and Control in Accordance with LCP BREF 2017
