  • Monitoring - Pollution Prevention Guidelines

    Introduction Pollution Prevention Guidelines to provide technical advice and guidance to staff and consultants involved in pollution-related projects. The guidelines represent state-of-the-art thinking on how to reduce pollution emissions from the production process. In many cases, the guidelines provide numerical targets for reducing pollution, as well as maximum ...

  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Air quality monitoring: establishing criteria for station classification

    According to the Council Decision 97/101/EC on Exchange of Information, stations should be classified in relation to the type of area where they are located and according to the type of dominant emission sources influencing the air pollutant concentrations at the station. A detailed methodology was developed for the validation of the classification of Portuguese air quality monitoring stations, ...

  • 2 ambient air monitoring stations for Bangladesh

    Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world and its urban areas suffer from air pollution of different levels and it is extremely high in the Dhaka city where the population is about 12 million in 300 km2 of surface area. It has been estimated that air pollution is causing about 15,000 premature deaths and several million cases of illness every year, in the Dhaka city ...

  • Reduction of Train Noise Monitored by New Measurement Station

    With increasing passenger and freight traffic, the strengthening of the rail traffic is an important and actual issue. For sustainable mobility, the reduction of noise pollution caused by trains is essential. All involved parties agree on one claim: Increase railway traffic, decrease railway noise! Additional to two already existing stations measuring road traffic noises, ...

  • Monitoring pollution in remote regions of Africa case study

    Customer: The South African Weather Service (SAWS) Ecotech’s Distributor: SI Analytics (Pty) Ltd Application: Ambient Air Monitoring in Karoo and Waterberg regions of South Africa Background: Carbon Monoxide and Sulfur Dioxide are among the major pollutants found in cities around the ...

  • Air quality Monitors Track Pollution Hot-Spots

    Situated in the south west of Wales, in a largely rural area bordering the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire’s air quality is predominantly good. However, there are areas of concern where major roads pass through some of the County’s larger towns, including Llanelli, Carmarthen and Llandeilo, where air quality is dominated by the effects of road traffic. The County Council is therefore ...

  • NILU establishes air quality monitoring stations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

    With support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and UNECE NILU is establishing EMEP sites in Kazakhstan, Moldova, Georgia and Armenia. NILU as the chemical coordinating center in the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) is responsible for siting, capacity building and quality assurance of the measurements undertaken as part of the Convention for Long-Range Transport of ...

  • Design methodology for background air pollution monitoring site selection in an urban area

    We present an air monitoring site selection procedure to determine the minimum number and location of monitoring stations to identify the occurrence of background concentrations greater than a reference value in an urban area. The objective technique reported here is based on the analysis of concentrations estimated using an urban dispersion model for at least one year of hourly information. As ...

  • GAW Regional Station for Atmospheric Research

    The aim of the JRC-Ispra station is to monitor the concentration of pollutants in the gas phase, the particulate phase and precipitations, as well as aerosol optical parameters, which can be used for assessing the impact of European policies on air pollution and climate change. It is particularly well suited for the participation in international monitoring programs like the Co-operative program ...


  • IFDM modelling for optimal siting of air quality monitoring stations around five oil refineries

    An IFDM modelling study has been conducted to determine the optimal siting of air quality monitoring stations around five oil refineries. The purpose of this immission monitoring network is specified in environmental legislation. The most appropriate output parameter of the IFDM model for this study is the 98th percentile of the moving 24 h averages, P98,m24h. Modelling for the optimal siting of ...

  • Chromatotec monitor air quality in Arcachon Bay through its own air quality station

    Chromatotec® made this summer the inauguration of its private monitoring station in Andernos-les-Bains. With a wealth of experience, thanks to which it already deployed massively its systems around the world, the group wanted to implement its own monitoring station to have complementary information to the actual air quality network. These data will allow the group to extend its ...

  • Material flow analysis of pollutants in Taiwan

    We present a material flow analysis (MFA) of biological oxygen demand (BOD5) and suspended solids (SS) in estuaries located on the northern and southern coasts of Taiwan. Using data from 1992–2000, we examine human economic activities in each watershed to predict associated pollutant flows. This estimate is compared to data collected at monitoring stations. The ratio allows us to calculate each ...

  • GAW Regional Station for Atmospheric Research - 2005 Report

    The aim of the JRC-Ispra station is to monitor the concentration of pollutants in the gas phase, the particulate phase and precipitations, as well as aerosol optical parameters, which can be used for assessing the impact of European policies on air pollution and climate change. Measurements are performed in the framework of international monitoring programs like the Co-operative program for ...


  • Air pollution – the invisible roadside killer

    The VW emissions scandal has helped to raise awareness of the deadly threat posed by air pollution in many of our towns and cities. In the following article, Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, an instrumentation company, explains why diesel emissions will have to be lowered and how the latest monitoring technology will be an essential part of the solution. ...

  • Air pollution in Europe 1990-2004

    Overall picture This report analyses and presents changes in air pollutant emissions and their possible health or ecosystem impacts in Europe covering the period 1990–2004. Emissions of all air pollutants fell substantially during the period 1990–2004 in the 32 EEA member countries (EEA-32), resulting in improved air quality over the region. However, ambient concentrations of particulate ...

  • A new online monitoring and management system for accidental pollution events developed for the regional water basin in Ningbo, China

    Due to urgency of the accidental pollution events (APE) on one side and the variability in water quality data on the other side, a new online monitoring and management system (OMMS) was developed for the purpose of sustainable water quality management and human health protection as well. The Biological Early Warning System (BEWS) based on the behavioral responses (behavior strength) of medaka ...

  • Practical use of the ISCST3 model to select monitoring site locations for air pollution control

    We present an objective methodology for selection of the minimum number of sampling sites required to register the highest concentration values of air pollutants emitted from a continuous point source. The methodology is based on the analysis of 1-hour concentration values above a threshold value estimated by atmospheric dispersion models. The number and location of the air monitoring stations ...

  • Modelling surface pollutant concentrations in the city of Zurich

    First results of a dispersion modelling study in the city of Zurich are presented. Surface pollutant concentrations (yearly averages) at several monitoring stations were modelled using the Danish OML-Multi operational model and compared with observations. For this purpose a detailed SO2 and NOx emission inventory for the year 1990 was constructed. The results show an average overestimation of the ...
