We all love summer
At Enviro Technology Services Plc we pride ourselves on supplying top end, quality products to a market that requires accurate data for research projects using traditional reference methods of measurement. However, we do of course recognise that there are other opportunities for more indicative, cost effective solutions needed for certain applications.
For example: We all love the summer but there are a few downs sides to the wonderful weather that we need to be aware of.
Have you ever considered the health impacts of Barbequing for instance? It’s yet another form of air pollution and if you live in an area already suffering the effects of heavy traffic, like London, then seemingly small acts like barbequing can contribute considerably, especially when done in concentration.
For comparison, a recent study in the states noted that a diesel-engine lorry would have to drive 10 miles to produce the same amount of pm2.5 particles as a single char grilled burger. (Researchers at the University of California)
Barbecuing is banned in many London Parks now as a result of local residents complaining of health related issues attributed to large numbers of people barbecuing in parks nearby on warm days. Research has shown a huge increase in PM2.5 levels when this occurs.
Of course there are other contributing factors to increases in particle matter in the air, including waste transfer stations, build-up of traffic outside schools during drop off and pick up and construction dust from residential developments, the list goes on.
Enviro Technology is offering the perfect solution for those needing to measure PM2.5 , PM10 or TSP particles from such situations -
