India is one of the world's fastest growing economies. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) of India has taken an important step to adopt Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) in India. The CPCB has initially directed plants in 17 categories of highly polluting industries to install CEMS for real time monitoring and compliance. The guidelines for continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) and continuous effluent quality monitoring systems (CEQMS) provide information on how suitable monitors are selected, installed and operated in order to demonstrate compliance. Continuous monitoring systems enable both compliance and enforcement of environmental regulations in India. Similar systems have been successful in Europe and the USA, and are being replicated by India and China. The aim of the CEM India conference and exhibition is to help process operators meet environmental objectives by providing guidelines, technical support and practicable solutions.
