Air Emissions: A Horizontal View of a Vertical Industry


This month's meeting was a general overview of the “Who?, What?, Where? Why? And How?” of the Air Emissions Industry. We will discuss what Stack Testing is, who does it, who needs it, why we do it, and how we get it done. It's as simple as “putting the probe in the stack.”
