Scott Specialty Gases
"New Lost Emission Credits Calculator Now Available From Scott Specialty Gases"
December 16, 2004, Plumsteadville, PA

Scott Specialty Gases recently revised its popular Lost Emission Credits calculator to reflect rising market values for SO2 and NOx. The easy-to-use slide chart identifies and links potential lost revenue to the degree of inaccuracy of calibration gases used to calibrate Continuous Emission Monitoring systems (CEMs). A CEM that has not been calibrated accurately can lead to overstating emissions, costing a company hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars in unclaimed emission credits.

The EPA requires that the actual mixture concentration of a CEM calibration gas (commonly called an EPA protocol gas) must be within 2% of the certified concentration, as stated by the manufacturer of the mixture at the time of preparation. In a recently published blind audit conducted by the EPA, 26% of mixtures made by various manufacturers did not meet this minimum specification. All of the gas mixtures manufactured by Scott however, passed the EPA audit. Mixture accuracy for Scott's RATA Class; EPA protocol gases is guaranteed to be +/-1%.
