Abstract Information :

Abstract Steel making process has been identified as one of the highly energy intensive and carbon dioxide emitting industry. In an integrated steel plant several millions of raw materials are used in different process at various units in iron making and steel making area. Control of work area emissions and fugitive emissions from various process plants are a major concern and challenge. Continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) are installed in stacks for real time emission monitoring. The main purpose of implementing the continuous monitoring system is to improve environmental compliance by ensuring credible and accurate pollution monitoring and reporting. At Tata steel Jamshedpur plant, around hundred stacks and more than eight hundred work area are monitored for emissions on a regular basis. In this work a detailed study has been done on various methods of monitoring and operational factors affecting emissions monitoring. The paper also describes importance of monitoring, measurement technique and key challenges in monitoring testing and analysis.
