The Air Quality and Emissions Show (May 24th & 25th – 2017)

The Air Quality and Emissions Show

The 9th in the series of Air Quality & Emissions Events will focus on industrial emissions and stack monitoring of (Part A) processes regulated by the Regulators of the United Kingdom and North Ireland, ambient air quality monitoring, the emissions to air of Part A2 and Part B processes controlled by local authorities and SEPA, MCERTS standards, aspects of air quality protection and treatment. There are three conferences planned at AQE 2017, one covering Air Quality and the others focused on Emissions.

Day 1 (24th May 2017): Monitoring of difficult species and regulation for stack emissions

The Emissions conference will take place on day one – 24th May and is titled Monitoring of difficult species and regulation for stack emissions

The topics for this conference are:

  • Compliance requirements of European directives
  • Acid gases: HF and HCl
  • Alkaline gases: ammonia
  • PM10 and PM2.5 particulate measurement
  • Trace species: e.g. mercury


Day 2 (25th May 2017): Controlling and Monitoring Emissions on Waste Management Sites

The Organics Recycling Group of the REA are pleased to announce that they will be holding a morning seminar on ‘Controlling and Monitoring Emissions on waste Management Sites’ at the established Air Quality and Emissions event at the Telford Exhibition Centre on the 25th May.

Topics presented will include:

  • What does the new M9 Technical Guidance for monitoring Bioaerosols mean to site operators?
  • Worker Protection Strategies against bioaerosols
  • The design and maintenance of biofilters for effective odour mitigation
  • What are your legal obligations as a site operator in respect to emissions control and odour monitoring
  • Odour mitigation measures which turned around a composting site, a case study in good practice


Day 2 (25th May 2017): Investigation of Air Pollution Standing Conference (IAPSC)

The Air Quality conference will be the Investigation of Air Pollution Standing Conference which is organised by Ricardo Energy & Environment. The conference will feature nine expert speakers who will give timely and topical guidance on overcoming the challenges facing the air quality community. Topics will be based around air quality measurement and monitoring.

Event organiser Marcus Pattison states: “The need to produce accurate, reliable emissions monitoring data is the same whatever the industrial process. Furthermore, the technologies are invariably the same and the people responsible for emissions are often also responsible for all aspects of environmental monitoring, including workplace monitoring, ambient monitoring, leak detection, fugitive emissions, fence line monitoring, air treatment etc. It therefore makes sense for all of this to be brought together under one umbrella at the AQE SHOW.”

Emissions monitoring will remain a central theme for the event, with the addition of other applications for gas and particulate monitoring. This will substantially increase the scope and size of the event. For example, whilst the previous MCERTS events addressed the needs of those affected by the Environmental Permitting Regulations (large and/or complex industrial processes), AQE 2017 will also meet the needs of Local Authorities for ambient monitoring and for the many thousands of industrial processes that Local Authorities inspect and authorise.

The Air Quality and Emissions event will host a packed Conference and Workshop programme to accompany the international Exhibition.

Topics covered in the 2017 event will include:

Ambient Monitoring, CEMS, Dioxin Monitoring, Mcerts, Regulation, Medium Combustion Plant Directive, Calibration, Air Treatment, Discontinuous Monitoring, Gas Analysis, Odour Monitoring & Treatment, Data Acquisition, Workplace Monitoring, Fence Line Monitoring, Manual Stack Monitoring, Abatement Technologies, Fugitive Emissions, and Operator Monitoring Assessment.
