ESS Announces Successful Conclusion to Hungary Emissions Testing Project

Environmental Source Samplers, Inc.Environmental Source Samplers, Inc, (ESS), a leader in emissions testing worldwide, announces the completion of an air testing project at an Ethanol Plant in Hungary.  ESS is making great strides with their experience and expertise in international stack testing.

Wilmington, N.C., June 2012 — Environmental Source Samplers, Inc., an established leader in emissions testing both domestic and internationally, today announced a successful conclusion to an air-testing project at an Ethanol Plant in Dunafoldvar, Hungary.

The Hungarian based client contacted ESS after discovering an ESS blog post, International Stack Testing – Challenges and Solutions, in which ESS staff discussed some of the special circumstances and potential challenges that are encountered while conducting stack testing outside of the domestic USA.

The project was for the purpose of verifying vendor guarantees for a newly-installed boiler system and scrubber control device, for a regimen of pollutants that included Particulate Matter and Gaseous Emissions. ESS also provided multiple days of on-site monitoring with real-time results for engineering purposes as the Facility staff made adjustments for process optimization and tuning. ESS utilized USEPA and ISO methodologies; EPA and MCERT approved analyzers (European Union approved for emissions measurements in Europe); and provided the Facility a number of protocol blend gas bottles for the sampling project.

As is frequently the case in air-testing projects both domestic and international, the project required flexibility in operations. Changes in project scope and requirements, late additions to air-testing needs and late changes in schedule are a common occurrence, but without preparation and experience these common occurrences can become extreme difficulties when mobilizing internationally. ESS utilized its experience, drawn from international projects conducted in such places as Hong Kong, Dominican Republic and other points in Europe. The ESS network of reputable vendors and service providers helped drive this project to completion within the required timeline and budget.

Founded in 1979, ESS has been performing industrial air quality testing since that time, and has developed into a leader within the field. ESS utilizes modern, consistently maintained equipment to conduct its stack testing services throughout the U.S. and abroad. They are qualified to conduct a wide range of EPA test methodologies among various air emissions sources and industries. ESS clients have easy access to the reliable and accurate reporting of stack test results through a secure online client portal.
