View live vehicle emissions data at AQE 2018


The Air Quality & Emissions Show AQE 2018 will take place in Telford next week (Wednesday & Thursday). The event is mainly focused on monitoring air quality and emissions, the importance of which was highlighted by the VW scandal.
The PR below explains how AQE visitors will be able to see live vehicle emissions from local traffic, but there will also be a wealth of technologies from global manufacturers as well as technical conferences and workshops addressing air quality issues.
Any journalists wishing to come would be most welcome, but please let me know if you plan to do so?
Many thanks

Visitors to next week's Air Quality & Emissions Show (AQE 2018) in Telford will be able to view live emissions data from vehicles travelling on a road close to the Telford International Centre, where the event will take place (21-22ndNov.)  Ricardo plc, a global strategic engineering and environmental consultancy, will operate the monitoring equipment, providing a live feed into their AQE exhibition stand number No. 74.

"This is very exciting," comments show organiser Marcus Pattison. "Vehicles are being blamed for urban air pollution, so this will be a great opportunity to see ‘real-world' emissions rather than car manufacturers' data. Entry to the AQE 2018 exhibition is free of charge to pre-registered visitors so whilst the event was created for air quality professionals, there is no reason why members of the public or local pressure groups should not also attend."

Ricardo and its technology partner, OPUS RSE, use state of the art vehicle emission remote sensing equipment to accurately measure real-world driving emissions from large numbers of vehicles, under actual driving conditions, in a short space of time. The equipment is portable and will be configured to measure emissions of the pollutants of most interest, namely nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and ammonia.

The data gathered provides local insight necessary to inform the cost-effective design of low-emission policy and helps to ensure that mitigation measures focus only on the most polluting vehicle types.

The world's leading manufacturers of air quality monitoring equipment will display the latest technologies at the event, and with registrations up by 21% AQE 2018 is set to be busier than ever. In addition to the exhibition there will be a comprehensive programme of free workshops as well as conferences on Clean Air Zones, the Medium Combustion Plant Directive, air quality legislation and Brexit, emissions from organics recycling, and air quality monitoring and improvement measures.

Registration is available
