Industrial (Permitting) Air Quality Assessments

Industrial facilities, often those with environmental permits, can have a significant impact on local air quality and an assessment of air emissions is often required for new or developing installations. We regularly liaise with regulators across the U.K. and Ireland (e.g. SEPA, EA, NIEA and local councils) for such assessments and know what is required to satisfy regulatory requirements. This can be undertaken for any pollutant, including odour, and used to define an appropriate stack height if required.

Where possible we will look to screen your emissions from detailed assessment by firstly using cost-effective techniques such as D1 calculations or the EA’s H1 Software Tool. Where detailed assessment is required, we will use the most appropriate dispersion modelling software (e.g. ADMS 5.2) to undertake a more robust (less conservative) assessment.

If the predicted air quality impact is too large we will work with you to define a practical, cost-effective mitigation strategy, from process modification to abatement plant design and installation. We can also assist in the preparation of suitable management systems e.g. odour management plans.
