  • Basic understanding of “Real time monitoring/ or continuous emission monitoring system” and its importance.

  • Status of CEMS implementation and challenges in implementation

  • Technical knowledge and practical experience on suitable device selection, correct installation, operation & maintenance, data transmission, inspection and compliance check.

  • Checklist preparation for inspection of CEMS installations and course correction for proper implementation.

  • Field visits for hands on experience.

The training was attended by 31 participants from 14 stat pollution control boards (SPCBs). The participant group included environmental engineers, scientific officers, environment officers, lab heads and field officers. The training sessions involved lectures, group exercise, discussions and presentation and field visits to get hands on experience of CEMS.

  • Centre for Science and Environment recognises Social Impact Assessment (SIA) as an important tool to inform decision makers, regulators and stakeholders about the possible social and economic impacts of a development project. To be effective, SIA requires the active involvement of all concerned stakeholders. CSE has developed a five-day training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on SIA with specific reference to infrastructure, mining and other industrial projects.

  • With rapid urbanisation and rising consumption of goods and services, India is facing a massive waste management challenge. Every year, urban India produces 62 million tonne (MT) of municipal solid waste, 31 MT of which is dumped onto landfill sites. Figures for recycling are abysmal; for instance, only 1.5 per cent of e-waste is recycled. The need of the hour is to shift the focus of waste management towards processing and resource recovery.
