Abstract

This report provides a transcript of a Q & A consultation carried out for Element Materials Technology under the Measurement4Recovery (M4R) programme. The Environment Agency for England with agreement from Element Materials Technology were also party to the consultation as a relevant stakeholder. The consultancy concerned the measurement of ‘reactive’ gases from industrial processes regulated under the Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EU) in accordance with CEN/TS 17337:2019 ‘Stationary source emissions - Determination of mass concentration of multiple gaseous species - Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy’ and prEN 16429 ‘Stationary source emissions — Reference method for the determination of the concentration of gaseous hydrogen chloride (HCl) in waste gases emitted by industrial installations into the atmosphere’ addressing various measurement issues. The consultancy was led by Marc Coleman who is convenor of CEN/TC 264/WG 36 ‘Emissions – FTIR Measurement’ who elaborated CEN/TS 17337 and who is UK expert to CEN/TC 264/WG 3 ‘Emissions – HCl and HF‘ and therefore possesses knowledge of the discussions and rational with respect to the elaboration of the two methods. Issues are discussed including; considerations if applying for flexible scope; alignment of CEN/TS 17337 and prEN 16429 with respect to response time and sampling system validation; differences in CEN/TS 17337 and TGN M22 pass-fail criteria for sampling system validation and the merits of allowing a deviation for the former; consideration of sampling system validation using analyte spiking.
