Abstract: On 15 November 1990, President George Bush signed into law the Clean Air Act Amendments, which distinguish between: (1) "air toxics" and (2) "criteria pollutants." Central energy plants (CEPs) like those found on military installations in the continental United States generate certain levels of this second class of pollutants and, by law, must be monitored. Most installations in the continental United States are actually regulated for pollution emissions by their State governments, which, in tum, must meet Federal regulations. Meeting the attendant hierarchy of requirements depends wholly on a process of accurate monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting of sulphur dioxide (S02), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Installations required to install continuous emissions monitoring (CEM) equipment to meet State and Federal requirements may select from an array of technologies to monitor a spectrum of emissions. This work outlined available CEM technologies to help Anny and Air Force installation design engineers and energy plant personnel select appropriate technologies to track, record, and report emissions of criteria pollutants according to State and Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements.
