Hazardous Waste Incinerator Emissions

Service Description

Gossman Consulting, Inc. provides clients with the full range of services necessary to determine incinerator emissions to the environment. An obvious source of emissions is the stack, however many other sources also exist. These can include fugitive emissions from the facility storage units, process equipment leakage and laboratory waste management to name a few. To properly investigate these emissions requires not only an understandingof the process but also 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 and partners have determined the regualtory requirements, written the appropriate test plans, participated in and overseen the execution of these plans, and monitored and evaluated the quality of the data for a large number of devices under a variety of conditions. GCI's experience executing the functions in source sampling and analysis provides our team with a unique background and knowledge of emissions from combustion units and their support facilities. This experience is invaluable to our clients in aquiring the appropriate and realistic quality data needed for submittal to state or federal agencies, to the public, to industry lobbying groups, or simply for internal decision making.
