This report presents the findings of a study into the potential application of continuous monitoring techniques within the UK Metals Industry, with particular reference to: the availability of continuous monitoring techniques and equipment; calibration/verification procedures; and process operator experience of continuous monitoring. The range of metals and associated manufacturing processes encountered in the UK Metals Industry is diverse; ranging from large integrated steel works with capacities of over 3 million tonnes/year at a single site, to small non-ferrous metal recycling plants producing around 5 000 tonnes/year of ingot from dross and scrap. This report is divided in seven sections: introduction; potential releases from metals industry processes; applications of continuous monitoring systems; operator experience; developing technology; and conclusions. Moreover it contains four appendix containing detailed background information.
