The Air Quality and Emissions Show returns to the Telford International Centre in Shropshire on 24 and 25 May with a focus on industrial emissions and stack monitoring in 2017.
The free to attend two-day conference and exhibition, now in its ninth edition, features three conference session covering air quality and the others focused on emissions.
According to the organisers, the event comes at a time when the health effects of air pollution are regularly hitting the headlines, and ahead of the government’s consultation on its revised plan to comply with air quality guidelines in towns and cities.
Event organiser, Marcus Pattison, said: “The Conference themes of AQE 2017 will again focus on monitoring. The VW scandal highlighted the importance of accurate, reliable monitoring techniques and regulations, and this is equally relevant for the industrial emissions and ambient air quality monitoring sectors, so the AQE 2017 presentations will provide a fantastic opportunity for visitors to glean the latest information on regulations, techniques, standards, methods and technologies.
“The success of ClientEarth’s case in the High Court has meant that the UK Government has had to re-evaluate its air quality strategy, and inevitably seek initiatives to lower pollution levels in urban areas. Accurate, reliable monitoring is crucial for assessing the effectiveness of such measures, and AQE 2017 will provide an opportunity for the whole sector to come together and find the best way forward.”
The first day of the AQE 2017 conference will address the monitoring of difficult gases and dust components in industrial emissions, with presentations from an international panel of experts.
The second day of AQE 2017 will also feature a Conference with an emissions monitoring theme. The Organics Recycling Group of the Renewable Energy Association will run a morning seminar on ‘Controlling and Monitoring Emissions on Waste Management Sites.’
Visitors will also receive free access to the Exhibition and a series of walk-in workshops that will run in four rooms located within the Exhibition Hall.
A Gala Dinner will also take place at the Telford International Centre on the evening of Wednesday 24 May, during which there will be presentations for the ‘Golden Stack Award,’ sponsored by the Source Testing Association (STA), and the new ‘Golden (AQ) Site Award’ sponsored by Air Monitors and awarded to the best ambient air quality monitoring site.
