Monitoring of environmental impacts is necessary for most processing facilities. The design and execution of an environmental monitoring programme is crucial to its success. Monitoring must comply with European Directives and scientifically robust measurements are also needed to satisfy regulators and local communities. In many cases, the equipment used for measuring the concentrations of pollutants in air emissions and water effluent must be certified or approved. Some pollutants are difficult to measure and reference methods or proven equivalent methods and equipment need to be used. In certain situations, a combination of dispersion modelling and measurements can provide the best approach.


The reporting of greenhouse gas emissions requires measurement and control of fuel inputs and a justification of uncertainties. With our combined expertise in the measurement of air and water quality and greenhouse gas reporting, we can offer the advice on the following


  • Design, organisation and reporting of both short and long term ambient air and water quality surveys;
  • Monitoring of emissions to air and water;
  • Detection of fugitive emissions to air;
  • Emissions from waste management and composting facilities;
  • Assessment of wide area sources of gaseous pollutants;
  • Measurement and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Dispersion modelling;
