NIST Devises New Way to Measure Smokestack Emissions in Coal-Fired Plants

Machine Design reports: In collaboration with industry, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have completed the first real-world test of a new to measure smokestack emissions in coal-fired power plants. Each year, coal-fired plants must have their smokestacks emissions audited or checked by an independent third party, according to EPA regulations. NIST researchers wanted to make this test quicker to save the plants money during their audits, while also improving accuracy of the sensors.
