  • Germany - Reducing Noise Pollution from Aircraft Noise

    The German Federal Government wants to dramatically improve the protection of residents from aircraft noise. This decision is based on a directive (16/509) according to which existing 1971 legislation on protection against noise pollution resulting from air traffic should be “significantly improved”. The government envisages reducing threshold values around large military and civil airports ...


  • Noise Impact Assessment Africa

    WKC is proud to announce that it has been awarded a contract to deliver a noise impact assessment for a new 200MW wind farm in East Africa. Wind power capacity in the region is expected to increase by around 12 gigawatts by 2040. The project will convert wind into useful energy utilising an array of highly efficient land based wind turbines. The first phase of the project entails a noise ...

  • Noise exposure estimation methods compared

    It is difficult to compare estimates of noise exposure across EU Member States because the methods used to produce the data vary between countries. A new study has investigated five methods of estimating noise exposure and identified some of the reasons for variation in the data they produce. In order to comply with the European Noise Directive (END)1, EU Member States have produced ...
