Abstract Information :

The Waste Incineration BAT Conclusions require incinerators to fit mercury continuous emissions monitors (CEMs) unless incinerating waste with a “proven low and stable mercury content”. A protocol has been developed by the UK Regulators together with input from industry which allows operators to demonstrate low and stable mercury by virtue of their periodic monitoring results. By ensuring that they maintain their emissions below an agreed threshold level, operators will not be required to fit mercury CEMS. This session will explore the way the protocol works, how the emissions threshold was agreed, and the advantages and disadvantages of the approach.
