Continuous Emissions Monitoring with IoT for a Cleaner Environment
The industrial revolution was a turning point for the global society. It started us down the path of the powered, special-purpose machinery, factories and mass production. With growth in population, the need to ramp up production grew as well. As with any action, there is a reaction, which in this case was an increase in emissions.
Today, governments have created agencies that enforce emissions standards. This enforcement has become more and more stringent, with agencies requiring continuous monitoring of emissions and effluents from Plants, instead of the few readings a year, as was in the past.
What is a Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) and what are its benefits?
CEMS is the instrumentation hardware and the corresponding software required to measure pollutants in exhaust gases from factories and plants. Facilities rely on CEMS to collect, analyze and report the required emissions data to the environmental agencies. Pollutants such as SO2, NOX, CO2 and CO are required to be continuously monitored with some agencies requiring data for at least 97% of the operation time. In case the CEMS fails for more than a few hours (typically up to 4 hours), plants are required to stop their processes, which results in loss of revenue.
With SenseGrow, you can:
- Get access to our Certified Partner Ecosystem with expertise in Environmental Monitoring Solutions.
- Get a custom-built solution based on your hardware and compliance needs.
- Get instant access to your plant’s pollutant and particulate matter data.
- Generate compliance reports and submit the data to environmental agencies.
- Get alerts to potential issues before they happen.
- Reduce number of field visits by limiting them to when actually required.
- Achieve 100% compliance, like these companies did:
What industries can benefit from CEMS and other Environment Monitoring Solutions?
Environmental monitoring is not just applicable to air emissions but also to industrial wastewater. Industries are regulated on how much effluent they are discharging into the water systems and are required to report the level of effluents. Any industry with stack emissions and effluent water discharge will benefit greatly from an online remote monitoring application for real-time continuous monitoring.
SenseGrow has helped the following industries with their environmental compliance needs and we can help you too.
|Manufacturing Plants||Paper & Pulp Factories|
|Cement Factories||Glass Production Plants|
|Oil & Gas Plants||Sugar Mills|
What do I need to get started?
You will need Connected Analyzer Hardware, IoT Platform and Remote Monitoring Application.
If you already have the hardware and a team to build the app for you, then Sign Up Now for a free account. This account is free for it’s lifetime and can be used to build proof-of-concepts before scaling and deploying the solution enterprise wide. We can help your team connect the hardware using SenseGrow’s IoT Platform. After that you can build your IoT solution faster.

What would it cost me?
Other than the hardware cost, there is Zero Cost to build a prototype solution. When you are ready to scale, check out our competitive subscription plans. If you are looking for an end-to-end solution, we can connect you with our certified partners.
What is this case study about?
This case study shows how companies are remote monitoring and managing their stack and waste water emissions in real-time. They are now able to resolve issues promptly and proactively while significantly reducing the frequency of field visits. Companies are saving on their operational costs and reporting a quicker return on investment. They are able to take advantage of the Dashboards and Reports feature offered by ioEYE to generate reports and show proof of compliance.
