Registration closes on June 21, 2017. This workshop is free.
All attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST campus. Photo identification must be presented at the main gate to be admitted to the conference. International attendees are required to present a passport. Attendees must wear their conference badge at all times while on the campus. There is no on-site registration for meetings held at NIST.
Through measurement science, enable the owners of stationary sources (primarily the electric power industry) and their regulatory agencies (federal and state) to better characterize greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The intended result is to create sound scientific data that can be used to determine if local and global emission targets are being met. This workshop will bring together diverse stakeholders to share perspectives, discuss strengths and weakness of current CO2 flux measurement protocols, and introduce new methods that reduce uncertainty and clearly tie emissions measurements to national standards.
- Calibration and uncertainty of pitot probes used in relative accuracy test audits (RATAs)
- Innovative flow measuring techniques applicable for smokestacks
- CO2 emission traceability for stationary sources
- Advanced multipath ultrasonic meters for improved flow measurement
- Concentration and flow rate measurement uncertainty for continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) and RATA testing
- Fuel calculation method for determining CO2 exhaust for natural gas or coal
- Challenges of accurately measuring smokestack CO2 emissions
Who Should Attend
Representatives of organizations and institutions with key roles in measuring CO2 emissions from power plant smokestacks.
- State and federal regulatory agencies (US EPA as well as environmental policy regulators from other countries)
- National Metrology Institutes with expertise in concentration or particularly in flow measurement
- RATA testers and power plant stake holders
- CEMS equipment operators and manufacturers
- Power plant stake holders
- Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
If you are not registered, you will not be allowed on site. Registered attendees will receive security and campus instructions prior to the workshop.
NON U.S. CITIZENS PLEASE NOTE: All foreign national visitors who do not have permanent resident status and who wish to register for the above meeting must supply additional information. Failure to provide this information prior to arrival will result, at a minimum, in significant delays in entering the facility. Authority to gather this information is derived from United States Department of Commerce Department Administrative Order (DAO) number 207-12. The required NIST-1260 form will be available during registration. *New Visitor Access Requirement: Effective July 21, 2014, Under the REAL ID Act of 2005, agencies, including NIST, can only accept a state-issued driver’s license or identification card for access to federal facilities if issued by states that are REAL ID compliant or have an extension.
