Stack Emission testing is the process of evaluation of those gases and their degree of presence in atmosphere from industries to meet environmental standards. Mostly every manufacturing or operating unit of a company has a chimney, which is called as stack. It emits polluted or wasted gas into the air which increases pollution. Results obtained from this testing process helps companies to stay within environmental compliance.
Why Stack Emission testing is Necessary?
Pollutants released in air needs to be monitored in order to:
- Meet the environmental standards
- Collect data for Emission records
- Provide data to Environmental Impact Assessment Surveys
- Measure process efficiency and process control
- For the process of Calibration of continuous emission monitors (CEMs)
- Study of efficiency of process change or newly installed pollution control equipment
Also Industries are required to submit stack emission monitoring reports to government bodies (Pollution control boards) on a regular basis. also refer to benefits of stack emission testing section for more info.

Who needs Stack Emission testing?
Any company who emits pollutants from stack are required to carry out stack emission testing process. It is applied to stationary source emissions e.g. stacks of power plants, manufacturing units, Diesel generators, scrubbers, boilers etc.
Some companies are required to monitor levels of Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and Volatile Organic compounds (VOC).
Frequency of Stack emission testing
Stack monitoring frequency can differ for each industry. Some companies need to monitor weekly, monthly, bi-Monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly based on scale of emissions being discharged in environment.
Stack Emission testing Parameters
The parameters for stack emission testing should have pollutants, flow rate and production during period of sampling
Common details and parameters for all types of industries:
- Height from ground level
- Velocity of flue gases
- Volume of flue gases
- Type of fuel
- TPM (Total particulate matter)
Other parameters based on type of industry
- Heavy metals including mercury
Stack Emission testing report
After conducting stack emission testing procedure sample is sent to approved laboratory for further testing. After completion of tests and analysis stack emission testing report is created.
It should include following details:
- Name of the organization
- Date and time of sampling
- Source identification information
- Analysis Procedures
- Calculation procedures
- Calibration details of equipment used
- Summarizing the insights from Monitoring report
Benefits of Stack Emission Testing
Stack emission testing report can help companies to understand
- To determine types of pollutants and scale of pollutants are emitted by their unit is within permissible limits
- Scope to decrease pollutants by changing process
- Scope to reduce pollutants by changing or installing new pollution control equipment
- Study efficiency of stack and guidelines to improve it
