Telford exhibition and conference will feature more than 90 stands, 50 workshops and a number of speakers over two days
More details have been announced regarding the upcoming Air Quality and Emissions (AQE) Show next month in Telford, Shropshire.
The first day of the conference at this year’s event – the eighth AQE Show – will focus on ‘Emissions monitoring challenges facing operators and manufacturers’, and will include speakers from E.ON Technologies, Syngenta and NPL.
The second day, entitled ‘Air Quality – Latest developments and tools’, will then feature speakers from Ricardo AEA, IBI/Transport Scotland, Kings College London and an EU traffic management project.
Taking place on April 22-23, the international show will include more than 90 exhibitors providing international attendees an opportunity to see the latest developments in instrumentation and monitoring services.
There will also be a poster competition under the theme ‘Air Pollution is bad for our health – the impact of personal responsibilities and local action to deliver clean air’. Sponsored by Environmental Protection UK (EPUK) and Environmental Technology Services, the competition will take place within the event’s exhibition hall.
More than 50 free walk-in workshops, mostly provided by exhibitors, will address a wide variety of air quality monitoring themes including ambient air, stack emissions, occupational safety, nuisance dust, fugitive emissions and boundary monitoring.
A section of a ‘life-size’ chimney stack will be constructed in the demonstration arena, fitted with a range of different CEMS (Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems), providing visitors with an insight into the latest online monitoring systems, according to the organisers.
Under a ‘Monitoring on the Move’ theme, the ambient air quality monitoring section of the arena will feature a variety of monitoring applications highlighting the latest wireless, battery-powered monitoring technology. Monitoring equipment will be fitted to a mannequin, an electric car, a remote control quadcopter and hot air balloons.
Event organiser Marcus Pattison said: “Visitors to AQE 2015 will be able to find new ways improve the quality and reliability of monitoring, whilst ensuring compliance with all relevant regulations and standards, but importantly, they will be able to find new ways to do so, whilst also lowering costs.â€?
It was announced in February that the AQE show had been approved for Continuing Professional Development (CPD), which means the various conference presentations and 50 workshops during the two-day event have been formally recognised for their educational value to professionals involved in air quality (see airqualitynews.com story).
