Tailored air quality assessments to help with your projects.
Air pollution is a major environmental health problem affecting everyone in developed and developing countries alike. Even relatively low concentrations of air pollutants have been related to a range of adverse health effects. Significant reduction of exposure to air pollution can be achieved through lowering the concentrations of several of the most common air pollutants including those emitted during the combustion of fossil fuels. Such measures will also reduce greenhouse gases and contribute to the mitigation of global warming.
Local authorities often require an air quality assessment as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for new developments. This is to protect the local residents and environment from poor air quality. Common pollutants considered in an air quality assessment include, but may not be limited to, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, particulate matter (dust), volatilised organic compounds (VOCs).
