The Environmental Industries Commission, the leading trade body for environmental business, is hosting a one day seminar with a specific focus on delivering Clean Air Zones (CAZs) at the AQE.
CAZs are a major part of the Government's plans to ensure compliance with EU limit values for NOx pollution. Currently 34 councils have been mandated by government to produce CAZ plans.
With a wide range of possible models for designing CAZs, and a range of different technologies that could be mandated or incentivised through them, this seminar will provide an overview of the main design challenges and how these can be overcome, and presentations on the potential of the various vehicle technologies that can cut pollution in the Zones.
A Clean Air Zone is an area where a local authority has enacted special legislation to limit pollution from vehicles.
Clean Air Zones can consist of a wide range of measures, from charging zones, to scrappage schemes, to limitations on HGVs.
The mandating of Clean Air Zones is part of the government's broader Air Quality Strategy, which aims to improve air quality and address sources of pollution.
This free seminar is an opportunity for local authorities and associated stakeholders to find out more about innovation solutions to address air pollution challenges, whilst providing an opportunity to network with and speak directly with local authorities, environmental consultants and technology providers on the day.
