  • Selection of Particulate Monitors

    The installation and operation of continuous particulate emission monitors in industrial processes has become well developed and common practice in industrial stacks and ducts over the past 30 years reflecting regulatory monitoring requirements. It supports requirements originating from LAPPC (Local Air Pollution Prevention and Control), IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control), WID ...

  • Air Quality Monitoring

    Why monitor air quality? Well, to monitor is to know. Everything else is just more or less qualified guesses. International, national and local air quality targets and limits are also tied to monitoring results. What is Air Quality? How is air quality ...

  • New modular options for AQMesh air quality monitoring systems

    The AQMesh small sensor air quality monitoring system already offers flexibility of monitoring location – through independent power and communications – as well as high data quality and traceability. Now the platform is even more flexible offering up to 20 different data channels. The wide range of sensors, including gases such as NO2, particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5 and PM10) wind and ...

  • Personal exposure to particulate air pollution in transport microenvironments

    Personal measurements of exposure to particulate air pollution (PM10, PM2.5, PM1) were simultaneously madeduring walking and in-car journeys on two suburban routes in Northampton, UK, during the winter of 1999/2000.Comparisons were made between concentrations found in each transport mode by particle fraction, between differentparticle fractions by transport mode, and between transport ...

  • Trends of lead in suspended particulate matter in Zagreb air

    Monitoring of lead in Total Suspended Particulate Matter (TSPM) started in Zagreb, Croatia in 1971 at three measuring sites. Monitoring of lead concentrations in PM10 started in 1999. This paper presents the trends of annual mean values for lead concentrations in TSPM and in PM10 particles. The obtained data showed a decreasing trend of lead in TSPM, especially during the last ten years when the ...

  • How clean is your local air?

    Few people know how clean the air is where they live, work, exercise or where their children go to school. Although air quality can be shown to vary significantly over short distances, air pollution is generally measured using a small number of large, expensive and high quality monitoring stations. The equipment used in these stations is very accurate and complies with measurement standards but ...

  • An ambient air quality monitoring network for Buenos Aires city

    This paper proposes an objective methodology for designing a multi-pollutant urban air-quality monitoring network to detect concentrations greater than reference concentration levels (CL). The network design includes both air quality simulation and an objective analysis based on monitoring tasks. The proposed methodology is applied to the city of Buenos Aires. Pollutants of concern are nitrogen ...

  • The Use of Particulate Emission Monitors to Support Arrestment Plant Operation and Upkeep

    The operation of filtration type arrestment plant can be optimised by the effective use of Particulate Emission Monitors (eg Filter Leak Monitors and Filter Performance Monitors). Particulate Emission Monitors are installed throughout the broad spectrum of industrial processes to satisfy regulations (IPPC, Part B Guidance Notes, WID and LCPD) for emission limit enforcement. In addition, where ...

  • The ‘ins and outs’ of air quality monitoring

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidance on ‘Air pollution - outdoor air quality and health.’ In the following article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors Ltd, explains why there will need to be more funding for monitoring if the mitigation measures mentioned in the guidance are to be implemented effectively. Jim also ...

  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Designing and Implementing Perimeter Air Monitoring Programs

    Perimeter or fenceline ambient air quality and meteorological monitoring programs have become increasingly valuable at hazardous waste, landfill, dredging, ports, and MGP remediation sites. Air quality monitoring programs protect public health and reduce owner liability ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Status of black carbon monitoring in ambient air in Europe

    Black carbon (BC) is increasingly discussed in science and environmental policy areas as an example of an air pollutant that affects both human health and contributes to climate change (e.g. WHO, 2012; UNEP/WMO, 2011; Bond et al., 2013; IPCC, 2013). In order to be able to make comparable measurements of BC in ambient air and to relate BC monitoring to health impacts and climate change it is ...

  • Spatial and temporal differences of Particulate Matter in Berlin

    Particulate Matter (PM) is still a problem in urban areas. The concentration of PM in Berlin and its variability is the subject of this study based on data of six official PM10 monitoring stations and a measuring program carried out by the Institute of Geography covering PM2.5 and coarse PM measurements at 19 sites, distinguished between traffic related and urban background sites. The impact of ...

  • Ambient air quality of Kathmandu valley as reflected by atmospheric particulate matter concentrations (PM10)

    This paper presents the analysis and interpretation of ambient particulate matter concentrations measured as PM10 at a network of six air monitoring stations in Kathmandu valley during the years, 2003 through 2005. The purpose was to understand the pollution trends associated with different areas considering levels particulate matter concentrations representing the ambient air quality of ...

  • Thermal Desorption-GC/MS Analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on fine particulates in air

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are commonly found throughout the environment in soil, water and adsorbed to fine particulate matter in air. Of the 16 common PAHs, 7 have been classified as animal carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Resulting from this classification, PAHs are monitored and regulated in the environment. Analysis of PAHs in soil and water ...

This study measured in-vehicle exposure to PM number concentrations using an aerosol spectrometer and BC concentration by an aethalometer. The measurement was repeated 3 ...

  • Ambient Air Sampling Methods

    Pollutants are nothing but any substance that may present in an atmosphere in such a concentration that it may harmful to surrounding, living organism or human being. Sampling and analysis of air pollutants is known as Air quality monitoring and it is major part of environmental monitoring. There are many advanced types of ambient air Sampling methods. we will learn here only which are most ...
