Dutch based environmental consultancy Emission Care and Pavilion Technologies of Austin, TX have teamed to provide Dow Chemical’s Elsta power plant in the Netherlands with an environmental compliance solution. Pavilion’s Envisage software is to monitor the behavior of gas turbines and steam boilers to enable Elsta to fulfill its monitoring obligations under the new EU CO2 and Dutch NOX emissions trading rules.
The CO2 and NOX Emission Trading Schemes are being introduced across Europe to combat the threat of climate changes attributed to carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. Elsta began emissions trading just six weeks after the Envisage deployment began. The project leveraged Pavilion’s partnership with Emission Care as distributor of environmental solutions.
Elsta manager Joop Caljé said, ‘Emission Care used its knowledge of emission trading, environmental regulations and process engineering to tailor Envisage to our needs. We have seen a dramatic reduction of man hours necessary for report generation and are able to achieve full compliance with emission-trading regulations.’
