Air Quality Monitoring Market Trend and Technology Development
Brian Stacey, Measurement Quality Assurance and Quality Control Knowledge Leader at Ricardo, and Tony Bush, Founder of Apertum, will share their knowledge on the AQM market and related sensing technology development: needs, challenges, trends and technology development.
Air pollution poses a risk to health which is particularly significant for those groups of people who are already suffering certain health problems which can be exacerbated by poor air quality. In the UK alone, air pollution causes over 40,000 early deaths annually.
Air quality monitoring sensors and sensing systems are now widely used by public and private organizations to monitor the quality of the air and pollutants emissions from industry and other economic activities so that to ensure their compliance with regulatory requirements and detect violations to air quality standards, as well as control pollution, discharges into the air.
Over the past few decades, air quality monitoring (AQM) technology has been developed into a rapidly expanding worldwide market which is worth $3,4b globally in 2015 and expected to reach $5.64 billion by 2021.
The UK is a world-leader in many key AQM technologies innovation developments and has an excellent AQM sensing community, rich research expertise, active and innovative industrial companies and also end-user communities.
To better support business innovation development in this sector, KTN is organising two webinars on air quality sensing themes to facilitate knowledge sharing and partnership collaborations.
In both of these sessions, we have invited major industry leaders, leading academic experts, regulatory and innovation funding agencies, and end-users to share their knowledge and expertise with participants. We are also providing exhibition space for relevant innovators to showcase their technologies and capabilities.
Online networking will be on offer in the afternoon using Meeting Mojo. Delegates are strongly encouraged to register a profile and take part in the 1:1 networking meetings. They will enable conversations with other attendees and with the speakers, as would be available during a physical event.
Register here for the “Obtaining High Quality Data from Low-Cost Air Monitoring Systems” webinar on 5th August.
