Training on Continuous Emission and Effluent Quality Monitoring System

Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) and Continuous Effluent Quality Monitoring System (CEQMS) are mandatory for 17 categories of industries and common pollution treatment facilities in India. Grossly polluting industries also require monitoring and reporting effluent quality on real time basis. In near future, the real time data will become the basis for compliance check. In addition, it can also help industries in better process optimization and pollution control measures. 

Since CEMS and CEQMS are complex and expensive technologies, implementation challenges and associated risks are high.  Proper implementation is not limited to the issue of correct technology selection but also installation, operation, maintenance and data acquisition and handling. Therefore, proper knowledge and skill development for CEMS and CEQMS becomes most crucial factor for industries, regulators and associated parties. 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) recognizes this need and announces a one-week training programme on CEMS and CEQMS for environment professionals. The training methodology will include technical classes by experts, technology demonstration, group exercises and presentation, and guided industry visits for practical experience. 

Environment professionals from industries, consultants, environmental laboratories, regulators, academia and others interested participants.
