RE: Sox and Nox emission performance test

Performance test for what? Automotive products, turbines, boilers, furnaces, etc.?

See if this helps: EPA Laws & Regulations

RE: Sox and Nox emission performance test

If you're asking about a stationary source,I would recommend conducting a search for current "BACT" on your state's environmental regulatory website... this will give you a pretty good idea. Also, you cannot forget to ensure the source you're testing isn't applicable to a federal regulation with separate standards (e.g., NSPS, MACT, etc.)

RE: Sox and Nox emission performance test

For stationary sources, such as power plant boilers, these two pollutants are monitored using "mini-labs" that take samples from a stack. They report on a whole suite of compounds

These are commonly known as Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS), thousands are deployed worldwide and are set to monitor and report pollutant emmisions against limits that were set for that particular plant.

They report based on a variety of standardized methods as specified in clean air laws around the world, including U.S EPA 40 CFR Part 75 and 40 CFR Part 60.

Complex answer for a complex issue ....
