AQE 2018 21 - 22 November, 2018

Category: Exhibition
Location: Telford International Centre
AQE 2018, The 10th in the series of Air Quality & Emissions Events will focus on industrial emissions and stack monitoring of (Part A) processes regulated by the Regulators of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, ambient air quality monitoring, the emissions to air of Part A2 and Part B processes controlled by local authorities and SEPA, MCERTS standards and all aspects of air quality monitoring, protection and treatment.

AQE SHOW 2018Event organiser Marcus Pattison states "The need to produce accurate, reliable monitoring data is the same whatever the industrial process," he says. "Furthermore, the technologies are invariably the same and the people responsible for emissions are often also responsible for all aspects of environmental monitoring, including Workplace Monitoring, Ambient Monitoring, Leak Detection, Odour Monitoring and Treatment, Fugitive Emissions, Fence line Monitoring, Air Treatment etc. It therefore makes sense for all of this to be brought together under one umbrella at the AQE SHOW."
