Stack test reporting in the Candidate Countries: a comparative study

Project ID: 1978
Funded under: FP5-JRC

Abstract

This report contains the results of a study of the stack testing practices and reporting in Candidate Countries performed at the JRC in summer-autumn 2002. The study was performed within the frame of the Emission-PECO project at the Emissions and Health Unit of the Institute for Environment and Sustainability. The project aimed at assisting the Candidate Countries to reach the emission testing standards of Member States.

The main results were that the legislation, common practices and reporting for testing the flue gases from stationary emissions is far from harmonized in the Candidate Countries. The major problem is not lack of necessary standards, but not using or incorrect use of the available standards. An important contribution to harmonization would be to develop and implement correctly an EN standard in which the minimum requirements for the contents of official stack testing report would be set.
