How Are The Emissions From Production Measured And Monitored?
The emissions from production are measured and assessed numerically, although there are country-specific differences in the methods of carrying out these processes. The environmental permits in different countries define the emission limits, control and measurement of VOCs and wastewater. The applicable legislation and the requirements of the environmental permit are observed in all countries.
The VOC emissions of our production facility in Vantaa are measured from the inlet and exit sides of the catalytic combustor at intervals defined in the environmental permit. The annual estimates are defined numerically based on the measurements and the operating time of the combustor. In Russia and Poland, where combustors are not used, the measurements are made at different points in the process, and the annual estimate is calculated similarly. The factory in Sweden does not produce solvent-borne paints.
