The organisers of the highly successful MCERTS events have announced that in response to demand from the environmental monitoring community, the format of the next event will be considerably expanded.
The next event, which will take place in Telford, UK, on 13th and 14th March 2013, will be entitled Air Quality & Emissions Show 2013 or AQE 2013. The new format will still focus on industrial emissions and stack monitoring of (Part A) processes regulated by the Environment Agency, but it will now also address the emissions to air of Part A2 and Part B processes which are controlled by local authorities, in addition to several new aspects of air quality protection.
Event organiser Marcus Pattison believes that the expanded remit for the event is a logical progression. “The need to produce accurate, reliable emissions monitoring data is the same whatever the industrial process,” he says. “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, fenceline monitoring etc. So it makes a lot of sense for all of this to be brought together under one umbrella – AQE 2013.”
