About EMSI

EMSI will customize a process to meet your unique company’s needs, whether large or small and regardless of complexity.

Our Greenhouse Gas Monitoring programs permit clients to experience a team providing commitment, trustworthiness, dependability and proven systems.

What is Greenhouse Gas Monitoring?

Greenhouse gas monitoring is the required measurement of greenhouse gas levels and emissions.

EMSI’s Greenhouse Gas Monitoring is conducted by experienced, trained and certified environmental technicians. Professional equipment with the latest technologies is used to detect the greenhouse gas emissions that can come off compressors and stacks.

EMSI helps each client with the management and identification of greenhouse gas sources and gas emissions.

Greenhouse gas monitoring criteria directs the measurement and recording techniques of greenhouse gas emissions. The focal points of this criteria are: planning process, developing and implementing reporting, data evaluation, and testing and authentication.

The Impact of Greenhouse Gas

The issue of greenhouse gas and the effect it can have on the future of this planet is not one to be taken lightly. For years now, different bodies have been decrying the issue and asking for governments and international organizations to be proactive and take active steps in checking and reducing the emission of greenhouse gas.

This, in part, is what birthed the Montreal Protocol (which aims to reduce the amount of ozone-depleting compounds emitted) and the Kyoto Protocol (which seeks to reduce the number of anthropogenic greenhouse gases in the atmosphere). These Protocols require the signature countries to report their emissions regularly. But sadly, the reporting of these emissions is not a straightforward matter where one will measure the volume and percentage of the gas in the air.
Reporting the level of greenhouse gas emitted by the individual countries is a challenging task. The 191 signatory countries to the Kyoto Protocol make use of an inventory like approach to produce estimates of their emissions. The processes involved in the direct measurement of the greenhouse gas are quite complicated. As a result, estimates are made for the various potential sources of greenhouse gas, such as fossil fuel, energy production, and agriculture.

The signature countries of the Montreal and Kyoto Protocols have developed systems that will help them to validate the inventory estimate calculations through the use of atmospheric measurements. This data generated by the various greenhouse gas monitoring systems, employed by these countries, help in verifying that they are adhering strictly to the spirit of the Protocols as promised.

These monitoring systems will help in making informed decisions when the essential international bodies are sitting to establish policies on climate change. The data generated can also be used as a basis for negotiating and setting the future targets for the participating countries. Greenhouse gas emission estimates then will be used to make plans for emission reduction.

Distinguishing between greenhouse gases that are of natural origin and those that are human-made will be a massive challenge in the near future. Setting the right monitoring systems in place now will go a long way in helping humanity arrest the looming menace of greenhouse gas.
