Environmental Efficiency has just announced a revised
version of their IPPC Data Manager package.
This package is aimed at all companies with an IPPC licence,
as it will allow users to meet the EPA requirement stated
in most new licences - i.e. 'The licensee shall, within
six months of the date of grant of this licence, develop and
establish a Data Management System for collation, archiving,
assessing and graphically presenting the environmental monitoring
data generated as a result of this licence'.
To use the package to draw graphs, the user selects the emission
point name, the date range and one or more parameters. The
graph is drawn in less than 10 seconds and displayed within
Excel. If only one parameter is selected, the graph will show
the Emission Limit Value and Average in addition to the concentration
for the date range.
In addition to a graph showing concentration of the parameter,
the package will also generate '% compliance'. These
enable the compliance - or otherwise - of a large number of
parameters for an emission point to be shown on one graph.
This graphing facility allows the user to 'assess and graphically
present' the data as required by the EPA.
Other options within the package hide or display data markers,
define how missing results are to be treated, whether MDL
and ELV limits are to be plotted and allow either a log or
linear Y axis.
Environmental Efficiency offers this package free
of charge to all its monitoring clients - with free technical
support. A data set of monitoring results is then emailed
on a regular basis. The data base is a subset of Environmental
Efficiency's custom LIMS (Laboratory Information Management
System) and thus ensures that there are no errors introduced.
For firms who wish to transfer their monitoring contracts
to Environmental Efficiency, the package has a 'foreign
data' import facility.
In addition to meeting the EPA's requirements, the package
will be of great benefit to the production of the Annual Environmental
