DECC has published the Government Response to the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) consultation and laid regulations in Parliament to give legal effect to the scheme, and published guidance for potential scheme participants.
A copy of the Government Response and DECC Guidance can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/consultations/energy-savings-opportunity-scheme.
ESOS is an energy assessment scheme that is mandatory for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria. The Environment Agency is the UK scheme administrator. Organisations that qualify for ESOS must carry out ESOS assessments every 4 years. These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures. Continue reading
This case study looks at the air quality being experienced on a daily basis in London by people working and travelling about london.
It looks at how a combination of a standalone CamCleaner City air purifier, effective air filtration and a well-sealed building envelope can deliver clean, healthy, Indoor Air Quality.
In general terms the main health hazard comes from exposure to traffic pollution. Fine combustion particles and gases in a toxic mix that can be inhaled by people and are classed as a Group1 (highest level) carcinogen by the World Health Organisation.
Camfil recently opened a new London office and being close to Euston station it is good for business and transport links of all types. Unfortunately transport such as trains buses and taxis produce this air pollution.
There are other outside sources such as the much publicised recent southern UK air pollution incident involving desert dust and also volcanic events causing disruption to air transport because of airborne particles.
Clearly these fine particles can sometimes travel in concentrated plumes over long distances and stay airborne almost indefinitely.
This also applies to traffic air pollution particles and gases that can stay in the air and react producing chemical smog.
The results in graph 1 show the particulate air pollution level was measured at in the range 0.3 to 0.5 microns Dia. which is a particle size range that can easily make deep lung penetration and cause health problems.
CamCleaner is a range of patented air purifiers with the most efficient HEPA filters on the market. They are designed to work as a supplement to your existing ventilation system and give you reduced energy costs, more efficient production and a healthier work environment with less dust and fewer harmful particles.
