Air cleaning system for the office buildings

by Dynamic Air Quality Solutions     based in Princeton, NEW JERSEY (USA)

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, we spend over 90% of our time indoors. Much of this time is spent in our offices. Studies show that cleaner air in office buildings can improve productivity and reduce absenteeism. High Efficiency Air Cleaning – Dynamic Air Cleaners remove dangerous airborne particles that other air cleaning systems miss…including odors, VOCs, smoke, bacteria, allergens, fine dust, molds and pollen…without producing any harmful ozone. When properly applied Dynamic Air Cleaners can have a significant impact on removing odors from outside air as the air comes through the ventilation system.

Waste recovery for energy & utilities

by Tetronics (International) Limited     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental impact. This fly ash is subject to Air Pollution Control as it is contaminated with extremely high concentrations of heavy metals and toxic compounds like dioxins, linked to cancer and other health problems. Tetronics offers valuable waste recovery plants that can eliminate the hazardous element within the fly ash while generating an inert building aggregate with the remaining material.

Carbon Dioxide Monitoring for Indoor Air Quality

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Introduction: Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters is not only essential for the well-being and comfort of building occupants, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency. A multitude of parameters can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) from gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds to particulates, humidity and bacteria such as legionella. Carbon dioxide is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality since it is produced by people occupying the building. Carbon dioxide production is a function of the number, size and activity levels of the people present in the building. Local concentrations can therefore vary dramatically – for example when a meeting room is occupied, or while workers are on lunch or coffee breaks.

Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters is not only essential for the well-being and comfort of building occupants, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency. A multitude of parameters can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) from gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds to particulates, humidity and bacteria such as legionella. CO2 is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality since it is produced by people occupying the building. CO2 production is a function of the number, size and activity levels of the people present in the building. Local concentrations can therefore vary dramatically – for example when a meeting room is occupied, or while workers are on lunch or coffee breaks. Excess CO2 levels can lead to tiredness and a lack of concentration and can contribute to the symptoms of Sick Building Syndrome such as headaches, eye, nose and throat irritation, itchy skin and nausea.

BREEAM Air Quality

by Gradko International Ltd     based in Winchester, UNITED KINGDOM

The sustainability and environmental impact of a new build house is typically assessed using BREEAM. Part of the BREEAM assessment method is determining the air quality inside the house. Gradko can supply a range of products for qualified BREEAM assessors. We try to work with qualified BREEAM assessors to determine and meet their requirements. The products we normally supply are used for monitoring formaldehye and VOC levels in new build properties.

Noise and vibration monitoring for the construction site

by ACOEM     based in Limonest, FRANCE

By implementing a noise and vibration monitoring system, the impact of construction site activities can be managed by: Complying with legal requirements relating to public health sanctioning the absence of appropriate precautions to limit abnormally high levels of noise and vibrations. Taking environmental quality considerations into account (HQE approach). Limiting noise and vibration pollution with the comfort of neighbouring residents in mind. Enabling companies in the public works and construction industry to adopt a transparent approach to communication with local residents, in order to avoid resistance and instead gain their support for a given project. Providing the site manager with reliable and official data, should it be required. 01dB offers solutions for construction professionals to suit the requirements of each building site. It provides them with metrological systems (such as the certified DUO sound level meter, dB4 and MR2002) with 01dB WebMonitoring services to ensure optimal control of noise & vibration impact of the construction work, using as well communication tools intended for the general public.
