Air Monitoring Equipment Endorsed by the Chinese Government
Jun 20 2017 Read 1017 Times
Markes International has announced that its automated air-monitoring systems for both canister and tube sampling have been officially endorsed by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection. This cements their long-standing reputation as high-performance, well-designed and cost-effective technologies for the analysis of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs).
The endorsed technologies, which are based on the company’s UNITY-xr, CIA Advantage and TD100-xr instruments, were jointly granted a ‘3iPET’ Environmental Technology Award following a rigorous six-month assessment procedure involving independent review, meetings and site visits. The award was officially received by Markes’ Sales Manager for the Asia-Pacific region, Dr Chris Llewellyn, at a ceremony in Beijing on 12 June.
By providing an official government ‘seal of approval’ on Markes’ leading air-monitoring technologies, the award is expected to greatly increase the appeal of the company’s equipment to Chinese scientists when making purchasing decisions.
The receipt of the 3iPET award is also a significant accomplishment for Markes as a company. Markes’ Technical Marketing Director, Dr Massimo Santoro, said “As well as being a reassurance to potential customers, the award helps increase the visibility of Markes in China, through exposure to regional audiences on government websites, at industry forums and at official communication events.”
“In fact, the award comes at a time when we are already making significant efforts to extend the reach of our business into China. The current focus on environmental protection in China is obviously a major driver in the field of analytical chemistry, and the benefits for both our company and our customers will be strengthened further by this endorsement.”
The 3iPET Awards are run by the International Center for Environmental Technology of China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection, and are presented to well-designed, cost-effective, technologies with practical application for prevention, control and monitoring of pollution in air, water and soil. This year the organising committee recognised 33 technologies in the field of environmental protection, including emission-reduction and remediation systems as well as analytical instruments.
