  • The Battle Against Aircraft Noise

    There is good news for anyone living near or under a flight path of one of the UK’s airports this week. A report out from the Airport Operators’ Association (AOA) shows that UK airports are reducing noise pollution and carbon emission despite growth in passenger numbers. The AOA was keen to publish the report in response to political and ...

  • A stand up noise service

    Noise consultants - performing surveys, complaint assessment or compliance monitoring - no longer have to choose between buying expensive equipment or turning down work, with a new subscription-based service called Noise Sentinel On Demand. Investing in brand new equipment for one project is not viable, especially as it may not be used on a regular basis and can quickly become outdated. To ...

  • Air traffic management to balance CO2 emissions and noise pollution

    Speed constraints for aircraft are put in place, at some airports, to minimise noise pollution in local areas, however, such practices can be very fuel-inefficient. New research has now shown that relaxing departure speed limits could substantially reduce CO2 emissions, while maintaining acceptable noise levels. The aviation industry is a major contributor to emissions of greenhouse ...

  • Sound and the city - Bruel & Kjaer launch range of urban noise management tools

    Urban noise management is a major concern for politicians, urban planners and municipal officials. There are many tasks involved in managing noise including solving noise complaints, noise mapping and policing noise limits, as well as noise abatement and zoning. Following this, reports must be made, actions taken and the public must be kept informed. Reduction of the noise levels by traffic ...

  • UK environment minister calls for views on managing airport noise

    Views on how noise from airports can be managed effectively were called for by Environment Minister Jonathan Shaw. He made the call as Defra publishes draft guidance for comment that will be used to develop action plans to address noise from airports. In line with the Environmental Noise Directive, airport operators must draft action plans that outline the measures they will take to manage and, ...

  • Estimating exposure to excessive noise in cities

    The 2002 Environmental Noise Directive seeks to provide a uniform basis for measuring and addressing noise pollution, one of the most important urban environmental issues for the EU. New research has assessed city-dwellers' exposure to noise and proposes traffic management strategies to reduce harmful levels. Clear evidence is growing for wide-ranging negative health effects of noise pollution, ...

  • Introducing the new Invictus Noise Monitor

  • Turn down the noise — softening the impact of excess transport noise

    As a major contributor to greenhouse gases, the transport sector figures high on the international climate change agenda. But for many living in cities, under flight paths or near major road and rail links, it's another of transport's by-products that causes most immediate harm: noise. Clearly, transport noise's long-term impacts fall a long way short of the apocalyptic projections for unabated ...
