The guidelines for a continuous emission monitoring system (CEMS) state how suitable monitors will be selected, installed, operated and meet compliance requirement. CEMS intends to improve environment compliance enforcement system in India. Similar systems have been successful in Britain, Germany and USA and are being replicated by India and China. The aim of the CEM India conference and exhibition is to help process operators achieve these goals and guideline and offer them technical and practicable solutions.
India is one of the world's fastest growing economies and is currently the third largest polluting country in the world emitting 2407 million metric tonnes of CO2 .To tackle this pollution 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 main industries that have been targeted to install CEM Systems include Aluminium, Cement, Copper, Distilleries, Dying, Chlor Alkali, Fertilizers, Iron& Steel, Oil Refineries, Petrochemical plants, Pesticides, Pharmaceuticals, Power Plants, pulp and paper mills, sugar, Tanneries ,Zinc and the Copper industry. The Parameters for continuous monitoring include, Particulate matter, Fluoride, Ammonia, Sulphur Dioxide, NOx , Chlorine, HCL and Carbon Monoxide.
The CEM India conference follows on from the highly successful series of CEM events which have been held in Europe since 1997. CEM India will provide delegates and visitors in depth information on Indian regulation and policy, monitoring guide lines, calibration and quality control. There will be case study presentations from International speakers, The Central Pollution Control Board and the Centre for Science and Environment on best practice , installation, procedures and data capture.
Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition of Domestic and International CEM equipment manufacturers and suppliers who will be able to demonstrate and give technical advice on the latest CEM products and services. Delegates and visitors to CEM India will be regulators, process operators and environmental managers who need to monitor and control emissions.
