Industrial Stack Emissions Testing
Industrial Stack atmospheric emissions tests conducted by Apex Environmental include:
Section 8 (a)(ii) of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act (2004) requires that national standards be established for municipalities to monitor point, non-point and mobile source emissions.
This is brought to effect in the National Framework for Air Quality Management in the Republic of South Africa (2007). (Click here to learn more about atmospheric emissions sources).
Limits for the density/opacity of exhaust emissions from diesel-fuelled vehicles have been prescribed in South African legislation viz. GN R1651 of 20th September 1974, Regulations Concerning the Control of Noxious or Offensive Gases Emitted by Diesel-Driven Vehicles.
South Africa is currently in the process of implementing Phase 1 of the country’s 2019 Carbon Tax Act. This has a number of implications for South Africa’s registered Atmospheric Emitters. To find out more about the status of Carbon Tax in South Africa, consult SARS’s Carbon Tax page. For more information on current South African Carbon Offset Projects which registered atmospheric emitters can invest in to reduce their Carbon Taxes, consult the Carbon Offset Administration System (COAS).
