The Ramboll Environ – Jiangsu China-U.S. Environmental Monitoring Co. Ltd. (EMCUS) EcoPartnerships aims to 1) improve the air quality levels in chemical industrial plants (CIPs) through research and development (R&D) of air pollutant monitoring and alarming system in China CIPs; 2) promote development of Chinese environmental monitoring system and system integration, and cultivate strong equipment and integrated service providers for these systems; 3) provide a strong foundation to promote environmental monitoring and treatment in CIPs in Southeast Asia, India and Africa, through policy guidance of the Chinese Government’s “Belt and Road” Initiative; 4) provide timely, reliable and public information of environmental quality of CIPs to public, and establish a long-term cooperative mechanism for R&D.
The EcoPartnership will 1) develop continuous air pollutant monitoring and alarming systems for CIPs in China using Huafeng CIP, Dafeng, Jiangsu Province as a pilot project; 2) use fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and traditional air emission measuring equipment to monitor Chinese CIPs for daily, real-time air pollutant concentrations; develop monitoring and alarming software; and 3) build a set of online monitoring systems for air, groundwater and solid pollutants in Chinese CIPs using the air pollutant monitoring system as a model.
On January 10, 2017, China's first project "infrared stereo monitoring and early warning in chemical industrial park" to which Jiangsu China-U.S. Environmental Monitoring Co., LTD. (EMCUS) invested was established in Huafeng Chemical Industrial Park in Dafeng, Yancheng, Jiangsu, China. In March 2017, EMCUS built the second atmospheric infrared monitoring system in new material industrial park in Jiaxing, Zhejiang, China.
Completed the pilot program of the continuous air pollutant monitoring, alarming and source attribution system for the Huafeng Chemical Industrial Park in December 2017.
Completed the Jiangsu provincial and Yancheng municipal acceptance of the Huafeng project in Jan 2018.
Built an FTIR air quality monitoring station of exhaust gas emission each in the chemical industrial park in Jiaxing Port Area, Zhejiang province, China (March 2017) & in chemical industry park concentrated area, Wujiang, Jiangsu province (May 2018)
Completed FTIR air quality monitoring project designs for chemical industrial parks in Xinyi and Xuguan of Jiangsu Province in April 2018.
Won a contract to develop a fenceline continuous air pollutant monitoring and web-based public reporting system for a refinery facility in Southern California in June 2018.
