Pavilion Technologies , a provider of advanced process control and environmental compliance solutions has announced that the Elsta power plant in Hoek, Terneuzen, The Netherlands, has deployed Pavilion’s Envisage software on three gas turbines and associated steam boilers. Envisage is environmental performance management software that enables monitoring and reporting of real-time emissions data.

“The Elsta plant delivers steam and electricity to the largest Dow facility in Europe,” says Peter Kuijs, team leader for Elsta.

Envisage will enable Elsta to fulfill its monitoring obligations under the strict European Union CO2 and Dutch NOx emissions trading rules. Elsta began emissions trading six weeks after the Envisage deployment began.

According to a Pavilion spokesperson, this is the first time that a deployment of this type has been dedicated for emissions-trading purposes in Europe.

In January 2005, the European Union Greenhouse Gas Emission Trading Scheme was implemented as the largest multi-country, multi-sector greenhouse gas emission trading process worldwide. The process is based on Directive 2003/87/EC, which went into effect on October 25, 2003.

Pavilion gained U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approval for software-based emissions monitoring in 1994. Envisage has been deployed in non-attainment zones throughout the U.S. to help industry address increasing environmental regulations.
