Emissions Monitoring in India call for Papers

The organisers of CEM India are seeking both oral and poster presentations for the CEM India Conference and exhibition which will take place from the 26th-28th September in Delhi India.

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 organisers are looking for presentations on the following topics Indian Regulations, Monitoring Guidelines, Manual Stack Monitoring, Continuous Emission Monitoring,
Calibration and Quality Control, Monitoring Techniques: Particulate Monitoring Techniques: Combustion gases including NOx, SO2 and CO Monitoring Techniques: Trace species for metals, mercury and dioxins, Data Management and Industry Case Studies. If you would like to submit a paper, please visit abstract-submission page and submit your abstract by the 24th of February.

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. India is taking a tough stance on controlling its air pollution, between January and May last year closure notices were issued to around 500 industries that failed to install CEM equipment! Once this scheme has been implemented by these 17 industries it will be rolled out to other industrial processes.

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 CEM Domestic and International 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 come from CPCB, the State Pollution Control Boards and process operators for industries that need to monitor air emissions.
