Automatic metering systems (SAM)

Automatic metering systems are made up of equipment which controls the atmospheric emissions of industrial installations, in real time. They are compulsory for certain facilities, their advantage being that it is not necessary to run periodic auto-controls because the information they supply on the emissions is continuous.

The information collected by the system is delivered on-line to Eurocontrol at the same time as being forwarded to the bodies with authority, in order to verify whether the facility is in compliance with the limits imposed in their specific provisions.

Automatic metering systems are employed fundamentally in the following classes of industry:
