Air Quality & Odour
Practical solutions to complex problems
Air pollutants have important effects on the health of people and ecosystems. Additionally, the public’s high expectation for high levels of amenity in their environment has led to less tolerance of nuisance caused by odours and dusts.
Our consultants have unrivalled experience of delivering Air Quality and Odour Assessments. As well as satisfying the needs of planners and developers, our team of technical consultants provide independent, expert advice on all aspects of air quality, sustainability and climate change to clients of all sizes in waste management, manufacturing and process industries, transport, power generation, oil and gas, water and wastewater, Local Authorities, government and legal sectors.
