  • Cartography for air quality monitoring: the geostatistical approach

    Being able to provide quick and accurate pollutant maps from readings at isolated measurement stations is becoming more important today in light of the European norms on air quality and the public’s demand to be informed. Commonly used algorithms for cartography are quick but their accuracy remains to be determined.Firstly, the choice of method is arbitrary and based on user’s subjective ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vehicular Emission (Air Quality) Monitoring Study in Lagos, Nigeria

    INTRODUCTION On October 12, 2006 residents around Lagos Metropolis woke up, to their wonderment, to a hazy atmosphere which was very unusual to Lagosians and indeed to so many people. Many were lost as to what was happening. Some schools, especially around ...

  • EPA Regulations Raise the Bar for Industrial Air Quality Testing

    Far-reaching environmental legislation continues to change the way Americans live, work, and run their businesses. For the past ...

  • New air quality rules challenge oil & natural gas industry

    EPA Administrator signed a suite of proposed new air regulations affecting both the Production/Processing and Transmission/Storage sectors of the oil and natural gas industry. The proposed rules mandate the use of emission controls as well as work practices through two different air regulatory programs – New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Modelling the air quality impact of industrial emissions over a valley in Southern Italy

    The aim of this study is to support decision makers and stakeholders in the management of air quality in an industrial area located in a valley in southern Italy, where neither air quality nor meteorological parameters are routinely monitored. The first phase focused on the inventory of emissions through monitored data at stacks, permissions to emit from local authorities, and life cycle ...

  • Air Quality and Emissions Monitoring: What does best practice look like?

    When we turn on the tap, we know that the water coming out should be of a consistently high quality. And we can choose – if we prefer – to drink bottled water instead. This is not so with the air that we breathe. Unlike the water that we drink, we have no guarantee, and in many cases no information, telling us that the air quality in our towns, cities and even rural areas is of an ...

  • 2013: a ‘perfect storm’ in air quality

    As many countries fail to meet air quality targets and large numbers of premature deaths still result from air pollution, Jim Mills, a particulate monitoring specialist and Managing Director of Air Monitors, explains why 2013 will be a pivotal year. In November 2011 Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment, expressed his determination to make 2013 the ‘Year of ...

  • Critical Monitoring of Forklift Emissions and Warehouse Ambient Air Quality - Case Study

    Our team of experts has been hard at work and has just released an industry-leading report detailing Forklift Emissions in Warehouses: The main objectives of this study were to investigate the effects of different engine conditions on exhaust gas emissions and to observe the effect that forklift emissions have on the ambient air quality of the warehouse.             ...

  • Marine Monitoring of Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Many of us who are not in the marine shipping business probably think of vessels as practical means of transportation, or, when it comes to cruising ships,  a place to spend your vacation. However, not all of us realize that large ships also are floating large power plants, with all aspects that come with power plants including potential contribution to air pollution. The ...

  • Confronting allegations of air quality non-compliance

    A facility with an air quality permit must comply with all the conditions of that permit and demonstrate its compliance on an on-going basis. Unfortunately, no matter how diligently the facility and corporate staff strives to assure continuous compliance, unexpected compliance challenges can occur. For example, new equipment fails the emissions guarantees provided by equipment vendors; new staff ...

  • Warehouse Optimization: Balancing Equipment Performance and Worker Safety Through Emissions Measurements and Air Quality Monitoring

    Successful warehouse functionality is dependent on both maximizing equipment performance and providing a safe and healthy environment for workers that encourages productivity. However, these two factors are often at odds with each other as warehouse equipment such as forklifts, burnishers and delivery trucks emit toxic gases that can have the potential to create poor indoor air quality which ...

  • Understanding ambient air quality instrument operating ranges

    In order to maximize the performance of an air quality monitoring station, careful selection of instrumentations is essential. One of the key issues is to have a good understanding of what pollutants need to be measured and at what concentrations. There are several different types of air quality monitoring, these include: Trace/Background Monitoring This is performed in areas where ...
