Environmental Services: Professional Air Quality Management Services

Since 2004, South Africa has had air quality legislation which requires all companies producing atmospheric emissions (air pollution) to have an effective air quality management plan. These companies must adhere to the national emission standards, which requires the monitoring and management of these ambient air pollutants. Certain plants and businesses (listed activities) producing emissions must follow through with Atmospheric Emission License (AEL) applications if they want to operate legally and with environmental and human health responsibility.

Air Quality and Human / Environmental Health

It is important to have an Air Pollution management plan in place, because air pollution has a negative Impact on the environment and human health. It is caused by:

  • Fossil fuel burning (in the case of cars and power generation or example).
  • Natural emissions.
  • Pesticides.
  • Industrial non fossil fuel emissions.

Advanced Methods of Air Quality Management

Environmental services companies such as Gondwana Environmental Solutions, provide air quality management solutions using advanced tools. For example, dispersion modelling software. This tool is a mathematical simulation of how air pollutants disperse in the ambient atmosphere. With the outputs provided, companies can confidently understand their impact on the ambient air quality and take the next step to limiting / controlling their emissions and causing air pollution.
