Air Quality on Bonfire Night 2023


21/11/2023

Every year on the 5th of November, Britons celebrate Guy Fawkes Night, or Bonfire Night, by lighting bonfires and setting off fireworks. While these activities are entertaining ways to spend a winter evening, they are known to emit both gaseous pollutants (NOx) and particulate matter (PM10, PM2.5).

If you require advice on how best to assess air quality get in touch on 01235 753257 or email david.madle@ricardo.com.


Fine Particulates


01/11/2023

The UK government introduced new air quality targets, which includes a legally binding target to reduce levels of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) to 10 micrograms per cubic metre by 2040, and an interim target of 12 micrograms by 2027. Exposure to PM2.5 can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and increase the risk of asthma attacks. If you require advice on how best to assess the levels of PM2.5, or other pollutants then please get in touch. Contact: 01235 753257 or email david.madle@ricardo.com.
