Our air emission teams specialise in the testing and analysis of stacks and stationary emission sources. OCTIEF is known for its high quailty and superior performance, as demonstrated in compliance emissions sampling using EPA Reference Methods, Relative Accuracy Testing (RATA) of Continous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS), Trail Burns, Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR), Boiler and furnace testing (BIF) and Odor Analysis.

All internal emission testing procedures are based on the requirements of the USEPA methodologies which either meet or exceed the requirements of the Australian Standards and NATA.
