The webinar will provide an introduction to dust, including a look at how the material properties, definitions and likely impacts of dust vary depending on the dust type and the activities with which it is associated. We will review of current legislation and guidance on dust nuisance and how it can be assessed. We intend to use a series of case studies to reinforce practical aspects of nuisance monitoring and assessment.

On completion of the webinar we expect delegates will have a better understanding of the use of monitoring and to understand factors which can influence a successful dust nuisance campaign.

Stack Heights - 3 October 2022

This is a pre-recorded mini-webinar. It is available from 3 October 2022 to 31 March 2023.

Fee = £65.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

The purpose of this webinar is to provide an understanding of short term local air quality impacts that may occur in the immediate vicinity of chimneys discharging pollutants mainly from combustion processes. The need to approve the size of the stack remains a legislative requirement under the Clean Air Act and,  is assessed in determining permits for Environmental Permitting Regulations activities regulated by Local Authorities. Such calculations are designed to protect local receptors from short term pollutant impacts and nuisance from odorous pollutant exposure.

The webinar uses worked examples to show the basis of the calculation and is designed to enable air quality and planning professionals to have confidence to be able review stack height calculations submitted as part of planning and permit applications.

The webinar presents data that demonstrate that a stack height determined using such calculation procedures (HMIP D1 or Chimney Height Memoranda methods) should ensure compliance with NAQS objectives.

Domestic solid fuel standards regs - 1 November 2022

This is a pre-recorded mini-webinar.  It is available from 1 November 2022 to 31 March 2023.

Fee = £65.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 have been made under the Environment Act 1995 and place controls on sale of solid fuels (mineral fuels and wood fuels) for domestic use in England. Local Authorities are responsible for enforcement of the regulations which came into effect in May 2021. The Regulations are additional to controls on smoke and nuisance available under Clean Air Act 1993 (CAA) and Environmental Protection Act 1990 but some requirements for mineral fuels align with requirements for Authorised fuels in CAA. The webinar has been prepared to inform Local Authorities of the requirements of the new Regulations and provide guidance on the context and implementation. This training is intended to introduce Local Authority officers to the controls and responsibilities of the Regulations so that they can provide advice, undertake potential investigation actions and, where required, undertake enforcement activities.
