The MCPD addresses the potential need for Member States to apply stricter emission limit values in areas where this can improve local air quality in a cost-effective way.
The MCPD regulates emissions of SO2, NOX and dust to air, and compliance will also require the monitoring of CO emissions. Each permit’s emission limit values (ELVs) are dependent on plant, fuel type and size.
The ELVs established by the MCPD apply from 20 December 2018 for new plants and 2025 or 2030 for existing plants, depending on their size. The MCPD addresses the potential need for Member States to apply stricter emission limit values in areas where this can improve local air quality in a cost-effective way.
Responding to the requirements of the MCPD, ENVEA has developed a new generation of eco-designed, ultra-compact and cost effective NDIR (non-dispersive infrared) CEMS, offering high precision and a fast response time. The monitor requires only limited maintenance, and allows simultaneous measurement of NOx, SO2, CO, O2, residual H2O, and optionally Greenhouse Gases. Particulates can be monitored independently, with the use of advanced electrodynamic device. Insensitive to T° variations in the range +5° to +40°C (no air conditioning required), this new generation of CEMS is compatible with any type of drying technology (gas cooler, permeation, dilution etc.). Other key features include compliance of the AMS with EN14181 & EN15267-3 (QAL1), remote communication, and AMS control functionalities such as integrated sampling control, automatic zero and span gas injection, external pump control, and system alarms display.
