This is a process of measuring the magnitude of emission of industrial waste or pollutants into the atmosphere. The emissions can be solid, gaseous or liquid organic or inorganic. Stack emissions surveys are carried out on boilerstacks, exhausts from printers, discharges from filter bags and thermal oxidisers. The surveys are performed on a regular basis for the following reasons:
- To determine the quality and quantity of air pollutants emitted by the source.
- To measure effectiveness of pollutant controller equipment before and after installation for a given condition.
- To compare the results with emission standards and to take the required action in case it exceeds the standards.
- To compare changes in emission with the changes in proceeds of raw materials.
