  • Better monitoring of environmental pollutants

    One of Mistra´s Idea Support projects has developed a new technique for measuring a material´s chemical activity, i.e., how it reacts with and influences organisms. The technique is simple, cheap and appropriate for both field and laboratory use. Several of the methods that are used for calculating how different chemical environmental pollutants impact organisms measure concentrations of such ...

  • NASA satellite improves pollution monitoring

    NASA scientists improved watershed pollution monitoring models by incorporating satellite and ground-based observations of precipitation. The NASA data replaces weather station observations, and will allow states to monitor non-point pollution and improve water quality. The research team, led by Joseph Nigro of Science Systems and Applications, Inc., incorporated two NASA products into a computer ...

  • Cyclists map Antwerp air pollution with on-bike monitors

    Cyclists with pollution monitors and GPS trackers attached to their bicycles have produced detailed maps of Antwerp’s air quality, as part of a recent study. Their data show that a gap of just a few metres between cycle lanes and cars significantly reduces cyclists’ risk of inhaling high levels of ultrafine particle pollution. Personal ‘mobile monitoring’ is attracting ...

  • European sensors will monitor radiation, pollution and extreme temperatures

    Wireless sensor networks are currently receiving huge attention as a basic tool to detect emergency events or monitor physical parameters of interest, such as radiation, pollution and extreme temperatures. The WINSOC project, supported by the EU with EUR 2.44 million in funding, is developing innovative sensor networks that mimic biological systems. With these new sensors, the project partners ...

  • Olympic groups to monitor Brazil`s polluted waters

    Olympic sports federations will be monitoring efforts to clean up the polluted waters around Rio de Janeiro to prevent health risks to athletes at the 2016 Games. An Associated Press report this week showed nearly 70 percent of Rio's sewage is untreated and dumped into iconic beach areas like Copacabana and Ipanema and picturesque Guanabara Bay. Those waters will host several of Rio's events at ...

  • Researchers Call for More Emphasis on Indoor Pollution Monitoring

    Indoor pollution is killing people at rates significantly higher than outdoor pollution, and the general public has for years been none the wiser new research reveals. According to a recent publication by leading global air filtration specialist Camfil, many people are unaware of the massive number of indoor pollution related deaths that occur annually. According to the World Health Organization, ...

  • Air pollution monitoring model takes off in Australia

    “The Air Pollution Model (TAPM) increases our ability to pinpoint pollutant behaviour in a wider range of atmospheric conditions,” says CSIRO’s Dr Peter Hurley. ”Over the coming years the new model will continue to fill a gap between simple air pollution dispersion models and the much more complex earth system models such as The Australian Community Climate and Earth-System Simulator (ACCESS).” ...

  • Nepal, Bhutan to closely monitor air pollutants

    The Himalayan countries of Nepal and Bhutan will, in 2013, have two permanent air monitoring observatories set up by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) as part of a programme to reduce black carbon and other short-lived climate-forcing pollutants (SLCPs). There has been ...

  • IMMISmt – monitoring system for air pollution and noise in cities

    IMMISmt is a real time monitoring system for air quality and noise. Based on online traffic data, measurements of air quality stations and weather data, IMMISmt calculates traffic induced emissions, background and total pollutant concentrations as well as noise levels within the streets as, e. g., hourly mean values. To do so, IMMISmt combines various models which are validated and widely used in ...

  • Monitoring diffuse pollution in EU river catchment areas

    In recent decades, discharges of pollutants from waste water treatment plants and industry have been successfully identified and in many cases reduced, but assessing inputs of diffuse pollution from land, and the degree of retention of pollutants, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, within surface water systems is harder to achieve. A recent study has compared different methods used to estimate ...

PPM's continued accreditation from previous awards which comprises a detailed audit of all aspects of Health and Safety policy and procedures. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards ...

  • Monitoring levels of harmful pollutants in ice rinks and arenas.

    Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is a significant concern in ice rinks and arenas; these facilities are especially vulnerable to the affect of an unhealthy indoor environment as fuel-burning equipment such as ice resurfaces are used indoors. PPM Technology and our partner in the United States, Joel Anderson of Precision Quality Consulting have supplied a ...

  • Successful airborne pollution compliance monitoring of ships at sea

    Despite new legislation that requires ships to burn low sulphur marine oil in EU and US coastal waters, the economic benefits of continuing to use inexpensive, high-sulphur fuels, combined with the relatively small risk of getting caught, means that many ships are flouting the rules. However, this could be about to change as a real-time, airborne pollution detection system based around a pair of ...

  • EPA Monitoring Shows South China Sea Not Polluted

    The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) of the Executive Yuan said the first successful marine water quality monitoring it conducted in the Spratly Islands in September 2010 showed that water quality at all monitoring points around Taiping Island and Central Reef are qualified with Taiwan’s A type standards of marine environmental quality, making it an unpolluted sea area. It is ...

  • South Korea buys Made in France pollution monitors

  • New Yakima Valley air monitor measures particulate pollution

    The Yakima Regional Clean Air Agency will begin operating a new air quality monitor to measure fine particulate matter in the Sunnyside region of the Yakima Valley. The monitor, which will gather data on particulate matter for a year, will allow regulatory agencies to develop effective strategies to protect air quality in the Yakima Valley and inform burn ban decisions. The monitor is located at ...

  • Seaweed could effectively monitor metal pollution in coastal waters

    Seaweed may prove to be a valuable tool to monitor metal pollution in coastal waters, new research has found. Spiral wrack seaweed (Fucus spiralis), which is common to rocky coastlines across western Europe, was found to contain concentrations of metals that rose and fell in line with concentrations in the surrounding seawater. This makes it a good candidate for inclusion in the European ...

  • Italian Cruise Ship to Carry Air Pollution Monitoring Station
