Regulators Training on Real time Pollution Monitoring System: From Understanding to Implementation

August 21-25, 2017

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi organized a one week training programme on “Real Time Pollution Monitoring System- From Understanding to Implementation” from 21st to 25th August 2017 at its main office at 41, Tughlakabad Institutional Area, New Delhi. The training programme was organized under CSE’s capacity building to develop the knowledge base and skills of regulators on following aspects of real time pollution monitoring system:

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

  • Status of real time monitoring 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 real time monitors installations and course correction for proper implementation.

  • Field visits for hands on experience.

Total 15 participants were nominated across 7 state pollution control boards (SPCBs). However two participants from Telangana couldn’t attend. The participant group included environmental engineers and scientists. The training sessions involved lectures, group exercise, discussions, presentations and field visits to get in depth understanding of real time pollution monitoring. A diverse group of experts including experts from CSE, regulators from Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), research centres, device manufacturers and service providers were involved as resource persons.






  • 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.

  • 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.
