EarthSense Systems Sponsors National Air Quality Award

Nov 3, 2016 -- EarthSense Systems, the new name in commercial air quality monitoring solutions, is sponsoring a national award for air quality. Part of the UK's National Air Quality Conference, the awards are designed to recognise achievement and champion innovation throughout the air quality sector. EarthSense is sponsoring the Local Authority and Public Sector Air Quality Initiative of the Year award, whose shortlisted finalists include Barts Health NHS Trust and Global Action Plan, Transport for Greater Manchester, the Cross River Partnership and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency working with Glasgow City of Science and Young Scot.

“This is a highly sought after national award with strong competition from across the public sector, and we are therefore delighted to sponsor it and help to raise the profile of air quality improvement projects,” commented James Eddy, Managing Director of EarthSense Systems. “We have already worked with a number of organisations in this sector and recognise the hard work, dedication and innovation that are required to achieve tangible results.”

The Local Authority and Public Sector Air Quality Initiative of the Year award, sponsored by EarthSense, will be presented to the organisation or partnership that has delivered an air quality project or programme that has been shown to have a demonstrable effect on air quality. With projects including Cleaner Air for East London, Clean Air for Schools, London Clean Air Better Business and an education scheme for young people in Scotland, the competition in the local authority category is very strong. Other award categories include Innovation in Air Quality Technology sponsored by Mercedes-Benz and Fuso, Passenger Transport Air Quality Initiative sponsored by Heathrow Airport and Air Quality Champion sponsored by Calor Gas.

The awards follow a one-day conference being held on the 10th November at The QEII Centre in Westminster. Organised by, speakers at the conference include senior representatives from DEFRA, Public Health England, Volvo and Autogas, with subjects including Clean Air Zone Frameworks, Urban Environmental Health and Sustainability, and New Technology and the Automotive Industry.

EarthSense, who will also be exhibiting at the event, has already undertaken a range of air quality monitoring projects, including trials of an airborne air quality mapper, air pollution monitoring equipment on a rocket, and mobile mapping with air quality sensors mounted in electric cars. Future plans include the establishment of a nationwide network of air quality monitoring sensors, feeding live data for up to the minute air quality predictions.
