Historically, the UK had been very dependent on landfills and most of the early incinerators were for disposal only, which only reduces the volume of waste. However, most landfills were unattended and unmanaged which caused land and air pollution to the environment. There are more than ten toxic gases produced from landfills, with methane being one of the most dangerous. Other air pollutants that are emitted from landfills include dust, particulate matter, and other non-chemical contaminants.In order to aim [...]
A recent study released by the King’s College London and UK100 analyses air pollution data from nine major cities in the UK, namely, London, Birmingham, Bristol, Derby, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, and Southampton. This research is due to be published next month and it analyses air pollution and the impacts it has on public health across nine different cities in the UK.The data suggest that on days with higher air pollution levels across the nine major cities, there was [...]
Nitrogen oxide (NOx) is a chemical compound of nitrogen and oxygen which forms when reacting with each other at high temperatures, specifically during the combustion process. NOx is mainly created during the combustion of fuel, including gas, oil, diesel, and organic matter.When nitrogen is released during fuel combustion, it combines with oxygen to form nitric oxide (NO). This can then further react with oxygen to form nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide are commonly referred to together [...]
Clean air is very important to our health, vegetation, ecosystems, and the environment. However, air pollution is a constant problem that is caused by the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere. Since the industrial revolution, the quality of air has significantly declined, primarily caused by human activities. There are many sources of air pollution, including energy production, fossil fuel consumption, traffic on the roads, and various industrial processes.In order to protect our health and the environment, the European Union [...]

The demand for reliable and sustainable solutions to address breaches in the permitted levels of indoor air Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) levels in Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs) has been keeping the staff at our Brownhills offices busy.Mr Robin Elshout, MD said: “whilst we are experiencing an increased demand for NO2 Filtration for projects across the UK, the huge level of investment in new projects in London has seen us play a major role in NO2 mitigation across the [...]
AAC Eurovent Wins Order for the Supply of Indoor Air Pollution Mitigation Solutions and Odour Control FiltersHeadway
A mixed-use regeneration development in North London is set to benefit from AAC Eurovent`s NO2 mitigation solutions, with a recent order being placed for a substantial number of Horizontal AAC NITROSORB units for the residential element of this high-profile development.The scheme is also set to benefit from an order placed for 3 large AAC Swiftpack units for Odour Control in the scheme`s school, kitchen & amenities.
More success for AAC Eurovent, as a North London project chooses their NO2 filtration solutions. The recent order which was placed by a well known UK Hotel chain is for the supply of bespoke ultra-low profile horizontal AAC NITROSORB units to mitigate internal levels of NO2 within the building.
