Gossman Consulting, Inc
HAPs Testing Services

Service Description

Gossman Consulting, Inc. provides hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) testing services. HAP emissions testing is the determination of the concentration and mass output of specific hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emitted from a source. This source may be a process vent, such as an inert gas purge, but is most likely to be the chemically complex emissions from a combustion device. To properly investigate these emissions requires not only an understanding of the process but also of the regulations and how they apply to the source as well as the theory and practice of source sampling and analysis. Our experienced team of professionals have determined the regulatory requirements, written the appropriate test plans, participated and overseen the execution of these plans and monitored and evaluated the quality of the data for a number of devices under a variety of conditions. GCI's experience executing all these functions in source sampling and analysis provides our team with a detailed knowledge of emissions testing. This experience is invaluable to the client in acquiring the appropriate and realistic quality data needed for submittal to industry lobbying groups, state or federal agencies or for internal decision making.
