Stack Emissions Analysis

Environmental concerns are at an all-time high across the world. RPS has decades of demonstrable experience and knowledge in delivering stack emissions analysis, performed to a UKAS and MCERTs accredited standard.


The Environment Agency has emphasised the need for the highest quality Stack Emissions analysis of compounds emitted from industrial and power generation facilities. This would ensure that all potential hazards to the environment would be considered.

We understand the challenges our clients face and can respond quickly with cost effective and tailored solutions specific to their individual requirements. This includes faster analytical turnaround times as well as on-hand advice for the appropriate sample media clients require, all of which we can provide in line with our scope of analysis. We also constantly review the most up-to-date methods and expand our scope where necessary.

Our team of highly qualified analytical and technical staff provide support and guidance to every market-leading stack emission test house, process operators and consultants to ensure their sampling complies with the legislation for emissions to atmosphere. This includes the Environmental Permitting Regulations (2010) and the Industrial Emissions Directive (2010).
