Environmental-Expert  published details of this forthcoming conference.   This conference is taking place on 16-17 November 2015 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.  The conference programme is assumed to be currently under scrutiny.

Air Quality & Noise Control UAE 2015.

With a view to raising air quality levels 90% by 2021 as a part of the National Agenda, the UAE’s Ministry of Environment and Water has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology, the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi, Dubai Municipality, Fujairah Municipality, the Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman and Sharjah Municipality, for the launch of the UAE Air Quality Network.  It is also urging the relevant sectors to address the issue of noise pollution with an emphasis on implementing noise control technology to improve the quality of living generally.

As more pressure is placed on the sectors responsible for air and noise pollution, organisations are encouraged to optimise their processes for emissions and noise reduction, engage in air and noise levels monitoring and comply with the latest standards and regulations.

It is worth mentioning that the global air quality monitoring equipment market is expected to exceed $6.1 billion by 2019 growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.15% between 2014 and 2019, and that the environmental testing market is projected to reach more than $9.5 Billion at a CAGR of 6.4% by 2019, according to the Marketsandmarkets’ report .

Air Quality & Noise Control UAE Conference will gather key regulators, industry stakeholders, air monitoring and noise control equipment and solution providers to discuss the latest regulatory updates, case studies, initiatives and best practices in technology implementation to help improve air quality and noise levels for sustainable and healthy cities.

Topic Highlights will include :

  • Regulatory update and guidelines for organizations on noise levels and air pollution from the UAE government entities.
  • Launch of the UAE Air Quality Network and how it will contribute to the development of a comprehensive and integrated national strategy to preserve the environment and improve air quality by 2021.
  • Technical and operational issues to reduce the emissions from factories, power plants, transport systems, as well as from the oil & gas industry.
  • Standardized mechanisms to measure pollutants and calculation of a daily air quality index.
  • Local and international case studies and projects on air quality monitoring data and noise level measurements.
  • R&D findings in air and noise monitoring, collection, assessment and control techniques.
  • Next generation air and noise monitoring and control equipment and technology.
