On 15 May, Amity University in Noida, India hosted a special Environment Day conference in association with India’s Air Pollution Control Association and the National Environmental Science Academy (NESA).
A key part of the day’s proceedings was a conference delegate tour of the Acoem Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Station (CAAQMS) located at the Noida campus in Uttar Pradesh.
The CAAQMS system was custom designed by Acoem Australasia for the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board (UPPCB). The UPPCB is the statutory body entrusted to implement environmental laws and regulations throughout Uttar Pradesh, India’s most northern and highest populated state.
Acoem Australasia has worked closely with UPPCB since the installation of its first CAAQMS at Kanpur and Varanasi in 2008. Acoem’s dedicated service and support to the UPPCB has helped deliver further CAAQMS systems at UPPCB Agra, Ghaziabad, Muradabad and now Amity University, Noida.
UPPCB continues to receive ongoing technical support and maintenance for all its CAAQMS systems from the local team of experts from Acoem India based in Indore and Hyderabad.
About Acoem Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Systems (AAQMS)
Acoem air quality monitoring systems are designed to best meet the unique demands of individual applications. We talk to our customers about their specific needs and tailor each ambient air quality monitoring system accordingly.
For example, customers in India typically require a system engineered for optimal performance in a warm environment, where power costs for air conditioning are a high percentage of operating costs.
With this in mind, an Acoem AAQMS solution will provide:
Air-conditioned shelters constructed using special insulated panels to minimise heat transfer, reducing air conditioning costs
Instruments that require less power than alternatives
Instruments that can operate over wide temperature ranges, allowing internal shelter temperatures to be higher and thus minimising air conditioning demand.
