The objective of the Introductory Stack Testing course is to provide attendees with the necessary foundation of understanding of the key principles and guidance in applying methodologies for stack emissions testing of air pollutants from industrial sources. The course will present the various integral methodologies for sampling air pollutants as identified in Australian, USEPA and CARB standards. In addition to course notes and lectures, there will be demonstrations on the various equipment used including a live demonstration of a complete stack test.
Participants will learn how to select and implement relevant sampling methodologies, importance of mandated QA/QC requirements associated with each methodology including calibrations, fundamental calculations and reporting requirements.
The Advanced course targets current stack testers and operators with some degree of experience wishing to improve their knowledge base in advanced methods such as Dioxin & Furans, Poly-Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Metals. Topics such as the validation of Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS), role of uncertainty and a case study on Waste to Energy Facilities from an emissions perspective will also be covered.
