    ET help Leominster to enjoy improved air quality

    Paul Norman (ET) with Herefordshire Council representatives.

    Herefordshire has two Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs) due to higher levels of nitrogen dioxide, exceeding national standards (40μg/m3).

    ET have supplied a new Air Quality Monitoring Station in Bargates, Leominster to help mitigate the problem.

    The work included all project management, installation & commissioning, together with a 3-year fully inclusive service and data collection contract.

    Picture left shows (left to right): Paul Norman (ET) and Herefordshire Council representatives: Councillor Ange Tyler (Housing, Regulatory Services and Community), Marc Willimont (Head of Public Protection) and Charles Yarnold (Environmental Health Service Manager) at the new air quality monitoring station in Bargates, Leominster.

    The station will provide the council with real-time data of NO2 levels, PM10 and PM2.5 which can help identify actions to improve air quality and provide additional data on other pollutants.

    Cllr Ange Tyler, Cabinet member for Housing, Regulatory Services and Community, said “By allowing more accurate measuring of air pollution, the new monitoring station will help us to identify areas of concern, improve the success rate of grant submissions, and ensure there is robust data on which to base medium to long term decisions and assess the impacts of our various initiatives.”

    This work follows ET's upgrade of an existing automatic monitoring station on Victoria Street in Hereford last year.

    Cura Terrae is pleased to announce the acquisition of Enviro Technology Services Ltd. The deal was completed on 23rd December 2022.

    Enviro Technology joins Ecus, Environmental Monitoring Solutions and Envirocare under the Cura Terrae umbrella. As a leading global player in the air monitoring systems market, their services perfectly complement the range of environmental services offered by our ever-growing group.

    Enviro Technology is based in Stroud, Gloucestershire and will work alongside our existing teams, offering real-time instrumentation and bespoke ‘turn-key’ environmental monitoring systems and support for the measurement of air pollution and greenhouse gases to a large range of clients in the UK and multiple geographies worldwide.

    For almost 40 years, Enviro Technology has worked closely with government, local authorities, agencies, research and industrial clients to implement and support the instrumentation required to monitor compliance with legislative air pollution targets, as well as advancing localised strategies and solutions.

    CEO of Cura Terrae, Professor Pete Skipworth, sees this entry into the air monitoring market as an important strategic step in Cura Terrae’s growth and an opportunity to continue building a leading and increasingly diverse, environmental group that offers complementary client services that make a real difference in taking care of The Earth. He comments, “It has never been more important to understand and manage the air pollution that is around us every day. This acquisition is a significant and exciting development for Cura Terrae, and we look forward to welcoming Enviro Technology’s staff and clients on board and continuing our mission. They will complement the services already offered by the group, and their expertise will strengthen our existing pool of knowledge, experience and resources, all of which allow us to offer excellent environmental services.”

    Duncan Mounsor, Managing Director of Enviro Technology adds, “We’re thrilled to have found a place where our business and staff can thrive. Joining the Cura Terrae family means we can continue to provide our clients with cutting-edge monitoring technology and high-quality services within a multi-disciplinary environmental group that aligns with our mission to help our clients work towards a more sustainable future.”

    Duncan adds ‘the expertise and experience our team bring to the group adds significant value, and we’re lucky to be joining teams whose disciplines perfectly complement what we offer our clients. Our global sales will continue to be led by Mike Webley, who is almost universally known in the air quality industry. We’ve been leading the air pollution monitoring sector for 40 years, and now it’s time to join forces with Cura Terrae and its subsidiary companies so that we can grow, learn, and lead.’

    Cura Terrae is backed by investment from Palatine Private Equity’s Impact Fund, whose long-term commitment to place purpose and sustainability at the heart of their investment strategy aligns perfectly with Cura Terrae’s shared mission to protect the environment. This acquisition was also backed by Shawbrook Bank, and we were advised by David Mkhitarian and James Down at Hill Dickinson Manchester, as well as Alex Stewart and Nicola Merritt at Cortus Advisory. Enviro Technology shareholders were advised by Tim Ward at Harrison Clark Rickerbys Solicitors, Cheltenham.
