Environmental monitoring extravaganza

Published:  01 November, 2018

Two of the world’s largest environmental monitoring events will take place in the same place and at the same time – Telford, November 21st and 22nd. PWE reports.

WWEM 2018 and AQE 2018 are specialist events focusing on the regulations, Standards, methods and technologies involved with environmental monitoring.

These events are ideal for any PWE reader involved with environmental testing or monitoring. However, one of the Conferences on the first day will be of interest to a wider audience as it focuses heavily on the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD), which will come into force on 20th December 2018. The MCPD applies to generators and plants between 1 and 50 MW (net rated thermal input) and an impact assessment has estimated that in the UK over 30,000 incinerators and diesel generators will be affected.

The WWEM (Water Wastewater & Environmental Monitoring) events and AQE (Air Quality & Emissions) will both have a packed workshop programme running alongside a selection of conferences. Anyone planning to attend should register at: www.ilmexhibitions.com. By registering, visitors will be eligible for free parking and refreshments, as well as free entry to both exhibitions and all workshops. The exhibitions will feature over 230 companies representing more than 400 manufacturers, and there will be a total of over 140 free technical workshops to choose from.


In addition to the updates on regulations that will be provided by many of the conference speakers, each exhibition will feature a ‘Regulators Stand’ providing help and advice from the regulators of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern and Southern Ireland.

The WWEM 2018 Conference programme is being developed and supported by leading associations including SWIG (Sensors for Water Interest Group), the Pump Centre, WRc, CIWEM, BMSS, PROFIBUS, CoGDEM, GAMBICA, WIPAC (Water Industry Process Automation and Control) and the RSC (Water Science Forum & Separation Science Groups). Consequently, conference delegates can be assured of high quality, topical content.

With air quality experiencing extremely high levels of global political and media interest, and with Brexit looming at a time when the UK Government has suffered repeated losses in Court, the timing of AQE 2018 could not be better. Debate is intensifying around the measures that must be taken to address air pollution, and monitoring has a key role to play. The content of the AQE 2018 Conference has therefore been developed in association with the STA (Source testing Association), EPUK (Environmental Protection UK), the EIC (Environment Industries Commission), the REA (Renewable Energy Association), the CEA (Combustion Engineering Association) and IAPSC (Investigation of Air Pollution Standing Conference).
