Industrial Services and Staff Training

As well as larger projects, Envisage can help you with day to day project such as ambient monitoring schemes and staff training.

Example Requirements

Environmental Monitoring techniques can be employed to assess your actual impact on the surrounding environment. Monitoring may be a requirement where a new development is proposed, or modifications to existing processes are being undertaken. Monitoring can also be used to provide evidence in a statutory nuisance case, or simply to provide background data on the effect of your emissions. The Consultants at Envisage can propose and provide solutions ranging from passive monitoring techniques such as deposition gauges for measuring levels of deposited dust, or diffusion tubes for assessing the concentration of gaseous pollutant species, to far more complex systems such as gas or particulate analysers which can analyse pollutant concentrations and log readings at set intervals over a monitoring period, providing more detailed and accurate data.

Envisage can also provide tailor made training courses for your staff, in any of the areas of environmental science we cover. Be it understanding the implications of your Permit or management system, or preparing staff to undertake applications or studies of their own, Envisage can prepare and deliver training courses to suit the needs and circumstances of your staff and your business.

Environmental Monitoring

Envisage can design schemes, identify appropriate equipment or contractors, and even undertake monitoring for you and interpret results.

Staff Training

Envisage can prepare and deliver training courses for staff in any of the areas we cover, relating them specifically to your business and staff needs.

Chimney Height Calculations

Calculations can be run and supported by detailed modelling as required, to confirm the required height of new or altered release points.

Discharge Heights

Other such services may include chimney height calculations to ensure that the height of a chimney, designed to vent process emissions, is sufficient to allow adequate dispersion of pollutants by mixing with and travelling through the surrounding air. In order to determine the necessary height of a chimney to allow for such dispersion, a short calculation can be performed which takes into account the nature and discharge rate of the pollutant being emitted. This calculation determines the height required to ensure that adequate control of ground level pollutant concentrations is maintained, and that under normal conditions, the pollutants emitted will be dispersed sufficiently so as not to create a health risk. Such calculations are a necessary aspect of designing a new chimney or undertaking a modification to an existing process which will affect emissions. They are also useful in statutory nuisance or public inquiry cases, where the adequacy of stack heights or the health effects of emissions may be questioned.
