Element offers a complete range of stack emissions testing, environmental inspection, and consultancy services to help organizations achieve regulatory compliance for their industrial installations.
Operators producing emissions to air from stacks and other source releases are required to comply with Emissions Limit Values (ELVs) and Quality Assurance of CEMS as specified in their regulatory monitoring requirements, such as EU Industrial Emissions (IED) & Medium Combustion Plant (MCP) Directives, US Clean Air Act, Permit & License monitoring requirements. Element provides independent, accredited stack emissions testing, which is essential for all organizations that wish to meet their regulatory compliance responsibilities.
All Elements stack emissions testing services are provided in line with national legislation, and our testing and inspection services are delivered in accordance with the international standards ISO/IEC17025 and MCERTS in the UK & Ireland.
We are dedicated to providing complete compliance management solutions through both testing and consultancy services. Our goal is to help you achieve regulatory compliance, meet your Environmental goals, prevent exposure, and support reduced emissions and improve Air Quality.
Manage your testing programme online
To improve our client experience Element has developed the new e-Mission portal, which allows you to plan and track your stack emission testing programs. Find more information about our new online tool.
In addition to stack emissions testing and compliance services, Element also offers audit training; e.g., Operator Monitoring Assessment (OMA) to prepare for an Environment Agency audit visit. Audit training can help ensure your audit will be carried out effectively and efficiently, resulting in an accurate representation of the standard of self-monitoring.
