Fenceline Monitoring

what is fenceline monitoring?

Fenceline Monitoring is ambient sampling that is conducted at the perimeter of a facility to measure fugitive emissions. Fenceline Monitoring is performed in a passive manner using sorbent tubes over several weeks. This sorbent tube data is collected on site and analysed at an air quality laboratory. By taking into account the temperature, humidity and wind rose data over the period of sampling, the emissions results are calculated.

Fenceline Monitoring is often referred to as BTEX sampling, where BTEX stands for: benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene. The full list of pollutants that are analysed, as per US EPA 325B, is shown in the table beneath:

Consolidated Emissions Results

With our multiple testing teams and short lead times, we can conduct testing at all of your sites nationwide and provide consolidated feedback to head office. Our reports are comprehensive and simple to understand, even for non-technical people.

Engineering Advice

Our service doesn’t end when we hand over the report. We will meet with you to discuss ways to reduce emissions and to obtain compliance. We can also conduct upstream and downstream measurement to determine the abatement efficiency.

The Bridge Between You and Law

We know the legislation well. We will sit with you and share how the legislation applies to your site. We can assist you with your Atmospheric Emissions License (AEL), NAIES and Annual Reporting. And we can help you build a relationship of trust with your Air Quality Officer as we have worked with many of the AQO’s in SA.
