Continuously measure biological waste treatment plants

As the operator of a waste biological treatment plant, you are required to continuously identify specific air pollutant emissions and operating parameters through continuous measurements to monitor emissions of air pollutants and to assess proper operation. A measurement report shall be drawn up on the results of the measurements and submitted to the competent authority for verification.

Measurement report on continuous measurements; additionally presentation of reports on functional tests and calibrations


With regard to the contents of the measurement report on continuous measurements, reference is made to the circular of the BMU "Federal Uniform Practice in the Monitoring of Emissions" and the requirements for evaluation systems contained therein. The reports on functional tests and calibrations of measuring devices for continuous measurements must comply with the requirements of Directive VDI 3950 Sheet 2.

The official requirements for the implementation of the continuous measurements as well as for the presentation of the measurement report are derived from the approval notice as well as the regulations of the Ordinance on Plants for the Biological Treatment of Waste. In the future, the measurement report will be submitted via the online portal "EMBE-Online".
