This project will establish a national program for the implementation of a permanent and comprehensive environmental inventory (survey) of industrial facilities in Kuwait. This will be done through developing a comprehensive electronic database of industrial facilities and the use of geographical information systems (GIS) and GPS system, as well as, by providing tools and software necessary to implement this project at the Environmental Monitoring Centre (KEMC) and the concerned departments within Kuwait Environment Public Authority (KEPA) and the relevant authorities and institutions concerned with industry in the State of Kuwait. Moreover, a pilot project will be implemented for real-time continuous monitoring of pollutants emitted from the stacks of some industrial facilities, which will be automatically linked on-line with the Environmental Monitoring Centre (KEMC) at Kuwait Environment Public Authority (KEPA). This pilot project can be used in the future as a model for the continuous on-line monitoring and the automatic on-line linking of all industrial facilities in Kuwait with the Environmental Monitoring Centre (KEMC) at Kuwait Environment Public Authority (KEPA).
