CEMS Incident Tracking, Flare Reporting, GHG Reporting

PI-DAS Continuous Emissions Monitoring & Reporting

Improved CEMS based Incident Tracking

Exele’s PI-DAS makes it easy to list, categorize and annotate CEMS exceedances and downtimes. The latest version of the Annotation Application provides aggregation of contiguous incidents making it easier than ever to apply the same attributions and annotations to incident groups. PI-DAS stores all incidents and their associated information in the PI archive.

Streamlined Refinery Flare Reporting

Exele has streamlined Flare Reporting for compliance with California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD Rule) 1118. Flare events and monitoring outages are detected and graphically displayed. The events can be reviewed and modified prior to report preparation. Missing data procedures are applied as necessary and submission ready reports are generated.

PI based GHG Reporting

A Refinery Greenhouse Gas calculation and reporting package is under development. The PI archive, Asset Framework, and Event Frames are used to support visualization of periods of unit operation and monitoring outages in preparation for the automatic calculation of GHG emissions. Audit data is generated for use by third party verifiers.

The Archers Paradox

How do you shoot around the bow? With a long bow the string pushes the arrow. Some of that push is translated into forward motion on the part of the arrow. The rest causes the arrow to bend sideways, into an arch. As it flies, the arrow keeps bending one way and another around the center line of its flight.
