Our stack emission monitoring team can provide a number of services from one-off testing requirements to a total on-site environmental package tailored to your specific needs. Polluting activities are currently legislated under the Environment Protection Act 1990 (EPA) and the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 (PPC). Other smaller directives on environmental emissions include the Solvent Emissions Directive (SED) and the Waste Incineration Directive (WID).
The PPC regulations have introduced three new systems of pollution control:
- Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) covers large installations known as A(1) and are regulated by the Environment Agency.
- Local Authority Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (LA-IPPC) covers A(2) installations and is regulated by local authorities.
- Local Authority Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC), which covers Part B installations and is also regulated by local authorities.
- installations include those that pollute to all media of the environment (i.e Air, Water, Land) and those that pollute some of the most hazardous pollutants.
- installations are those that do not pollute as much as A(1) installations but also only pollute to all media.
- Part B installations cover processes that are least likely to pollute hazardous emissions and are to the atmosphere only.
For further information on the updating policies to LA-IPPC (part A(2) installations) and LAPPC (part B installations) please follow links as below.

Staff qualifications MCERTs
Established by the Environment Agency, MCERTs enable quality environmental measurements. It includes certification on the competency of personnel and monitoring equipment. Certification of competent personnel is based on experience, training and examination on all aspects of manual emission monitoring.
All of Envirodats staff have been assessed in MCERTs and all hold certification. Our technical staff hold at least Level 1 certification (competent ability to support a senior engineer) and our senior engineering staff hold Level 2 certification with all technical endorsements (TE1, TE2, TE3 & TE4).
Health & Safety..
All work conducted by the team is in accordance with relevant health and safety legislation. All of our staff have completed the First Aid at work course and most field staff hold a current CCNSG Safety Passport both the general site safety and additional quarry training course qualification.
What can EnviroDat offer you
Our stack emission monitoring team can provide a number of services from one-off testing requirements to a total on-site environmental monitoring package tailored to your specific needs. We are able to meet your individual permit requirements so that you are within your legislative requirements. We can provide contracts for annual and six-monthly permit testing, commission testing, or abatement efficiency testing.
Our on-site engineers can conduct a whole range of measurements to BS, ISO, CEN and USEPA methodologies such as:
- Acid Gases
- Dioxins and Furans
- Amino acids and proteins
- Combustion products including; VOCs, CO, NOx, SO2, CO2 and O2
- PCBs and PAHs
- .and many more.
All of our engineers work to documented procedures and protocols both within the field and at our laboratory. We also use external laboratories for more specialist analysis of samples, which are all backed by UKAS specific accredited sample analyses.
We have carried out work for many types of processes including: landfill waste flare stacks and engines, clinical, municipal, animal carcass incineration plants, paint spraying booths, chemical production plants and roadstone coating plants and many more across the whole of England, Scotland and Wales. We have also provided regular services for customers in Europe.
