PFASs (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) are a class of almost 10.000 organofluorines. These man-made compounds - also designated «forever chemicals» – are highly persistent and at least some of them tend to accumulate and biomagnify in the environment. For that reason, more and more of these compounds are declared toxic as they pose a risk to human and environmental health. In a joint eLearning session, Theresa Steurer and Iris Reber from Metrohm International Headquarters,...
Stephen Harrison talking about decarbonisation, climate change. There is no planet “B”.
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Dr. Lesley Sloss of the International Centre for Sustainable Carbon gave a 20-minute presentation outlining emerging approaches to the global challenge of monitoring mercuring. Dr. Sloss addresses: The global spread of mercury pollution Contemporary and historical regulation of mercury emissions Alternatives to direct, fleet-based monitoring Cutting-edge modelling software for the estimation of emissions
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, David Graham of Uniper gave a 30-minute presentation outlining current standards for the quality assurance of mercury around the globe. Mr. Graham discusses: The similarities and differences between quality assurance procedures in the United States and Europe Type-testing requirements and measurement uncertainty Alternatives to current conventions in performing linear calibration The most effective methods for performing certifi...
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Ben Freeman of the Environment Agency gave a 25-minute presentation detailing the updated protocols for mercury monitoring in waste incineration. Mr. Freemen outlines: The monitoring techniques to be made mandatory in waste incineration by 2023 How to adhere to new protocols Methods for determining threshold-values The necessity and practicality of accounting for outliers
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Dr. Johannes Pfingsten of VDZ gave a 10-minute presentation comparing methods for the monitoring of mercury emissions. Dr. Pfingsten discusses: The advantages and disadvantages of the prevailing reference method, EN13211 Different methods for reducing the limit of quantification Prospects for the wider utilisation of sorbent-trap methods Controlling breakthrough at different concentrations
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Shawn Wood of Ohio Lumex gave a 20-minute presentation comparing methods for the monitoring of mercury emissions. Mr. Wood considers: The prospects of emerging sorbet-trap technologies A range of reliable means for cement and power plants to achieve compliance The state of plant regulation in the United States Notable emissions limits for power and cement plants
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Dr. David Green gave a 20-minute presentation on the origins of and initial reports from the United Kingdom’s network of state-of-the-art air monitoring stations, or ‘supersites’. Dr. Green explains: Where ‘supersites’ came from and what they do All of the epidemiological applications of supersite data How supersite data clarifies the sources of air pollution The utility of source-apportionment methodologies to interpret...
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Dr. Sarah Moller from the Science and Technology Facilities Council gave an overview of their air quality network, the SAQN. Dr. Moller’s 20-minute presentation addresses: The origins and aims of the SAQN and the STFC How the STFC’s computational expertise aids research within the SAQN The type of studies funded by the SAQN How the SAQN can be accessed by researchers, government officials and industry Prospects for the...
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Shona Wilde, Ph.D., from the University of York discussed how mobile measurements might be better exploited in the analysis of vehicle emissions. Ms. Wilde’s 20-minute presentation covers: The high spatial and temporal resolution of mobile measurements Strengthening the link between emissions and measurements A novel technique for extracting quantitative data from mobile measurements The prospects of adopting the methodology of c...
At our recent Air Quality and Emissions event, Professor Alistair Lewis of the University of York gave a 25-minute presentation on the relationship between strategies to address climate change and global air quality. Professor Lewis addresses: How decarbonisation might enhance air quality Whether adjusting timescales of net-zero targets could affect air quality The harmful side-effects of climate action on air quality How to reduce emissions from agriculture, domestic activit...
