The LEHDER Emissions Testing Team
The LEHDER Emissions Testing Team is one of the largest and most experienced in Canada and is recognized by several Canadian and US regulatory agencies. Seven team members are Qualified Source Testing Individuals accredited by the Source Evaluation Society.
Many emissions testing programs conducted by LEHDER involve simultaneous testing and the deployment of multiple field crews in order to meet the client’s data objectives. LEHDER has conducted more than 1,000 stack testing programs for industrial facilities in Canada and the U.S. since 1995.
Success of an Emissions Testing Program
The success of an Emissions Testing Program is based on the experience of the field crew and the quality/quantity of equipment and instrumentation available to conduct the program. The LEHDER Emissions Testing Team is currently comprised of 19 environmental technologists representing a combined experience of over 100 years in the source-testing field.
Two of the LEHDER principals, Mr. Michael Denomme and Mr. Peter Pakalnis, are source testing project managers and field leaders. Compliance and performance test programs are conducted in strict accordance with the appropriate provincial, state, Environment Canada and U.S. EPA protocols.
