ESS Completes Summer Projects Domestically and Internationally

Environmental Source Samplers, Inc.The summer months are typically a slow season for stack testing, but for Environmental Source Samplers, Inc. (ESS) the summer of 2013 has seen a larger workload, and more completed projects, than many summers before.

ESS attributes this large workload both to increased demand for stack testing service, and to excellent service that has attracted and maintained a consistently growing base of dedicated clients.

ESS strives first and foremost to provide quality service to their clients, with projects completed on time, within budget, and acceptable to both facility personnel and state and federal governing bodies. ESS offers expertise on current rulings, new and upcoming standards, and has the tools to achieve compliance with them.

The finalization of the MACT standards in December of 2012 — including the Boiler MACT, RICE MACT, and Incinerator standards – has spurred many facilities to seek engineering testing as part of long-term compliance strategies, as well as some companies who are already preparing for final compliance demonstrations. A partnership with Power Secure International and Governor Control Systems (GCS) for RICE engine compliance has driven a large surge in business, with clients desiring to achieve Subpart ZZZZ emissions limitations on their stationary reciprocal combustion engines. ESS has also conducted testing on Sewage Sludge Incinerators (SSI) at Wastewater Treatment Plants in multiple states for engineering and compliance with Subpart MMMM. Many of ESS’s regular clients have also been testing for the pollutants limited under the MACT for Boilers and Industrial Heaters.

Internationally, the ESS office established this year in Hanoi, Vietnam, is also completing projects for both new and repeat clients. ESS Asia and USA test personnel are this week completing a large project for an important return client, the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department (HKEPD). ESS performed sampling for HKEPD in 2011 for multiple pollutants at power plants in Hong Kong, and was awarded a bid in 2013 to test at those plants for fine particulate matter, as part of a further initiative by the EPD for cleaning the air of dust and contaminants. Partnering with Berkman Systems, one of the largest environmental consulting companies in the Philippines, ESS Asia has completed a RATA test program for a Philippine-based oil refinery, marking a successful first step in breaking into the very competitive RATA market in Southeast Asia.

The remainder of 2013 indicates a continuation of this trend. Through the acquisition of new clients and the retaining of current ones, ESS is already scheduling projects for completion through October and November of this year, and anticipates many more to come before the year closes out.

ESS expects to continue to leverage their customer service, stack testing expertise, and project execution to satisfy its current and future client base in 2013, and on into the future.
