    ET Managing Director, Duncan Mounsor, takes to the train in a bid to decrease his carbon footprint

    As part of our ongoing commitment to encouraging a more healthy and environmentally friendly way to travel to work, ET’s MD’s route to work on Friday 30th Nov was quite different from the usual drive from Cheltenham to Stroud.     

    Leaving his house at 0705, Duncan ran to Cheltenham train station (1.5 miles) where he grabbed a coffee from the Green Coffee Machine and hopped on the next train to Stroud. From there he ran from Stroud station to ET’s office (1.75 miles). After a quick shower and change of clothes he was at his desk ready for work at 0845. Duncan says “ I really enjoyed traveling to work today knowing that, not only was I contributing to one less car on the road for the day but I was getting my daily running fix in too!” Going forward, Duncan is aiming to do this once a week, when his schedule allows.

    ET supplied analysers equip Birmingham 'Supersite'

    The NERC funded investment will see eight universities led by the NERC Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) create the network of advanced A Q monitoring instruments to detect harmful air pollutants and their sources in greater detail than ever before. The research will provide essential information that will affect policy decisions which will lead to cleaner, safer, air.

    As well as analysers to detect toxic air pollutants, the network includes new instruments to detect a variety of greenhouse gases and ozone-depleting chemicals, in order to help the UK comply with legally-binding targets set out in the Climate Change Act.

    For the Birmingham site, ET have supplied MCERTS approved SO2, direct NO2, NOy Teledyne API analysers and two Los Gatos Research enhanced performance analysers for the measurement of CH4, CO2, CO & H2O and NH3, featured in the photo shown.

    The network is due to be operational by the end of 2018.
