Air Quality and Dust Control

Industrial processes are often the sources of emissions that could contaminate premises and pollute the environment; they could also pose risks of fire or even explosion. With increasingly stringent environmental and occupational health and safety regulations, companies are looking to improve the quality of life for their workers, including the quality of the air they breathe.

  1. Your challenges
    • Dust Control Systems

      Protect both your workers and your installations

      You have to follow the strictest industrial hygiene rules within your installations to protect the health of your workers and provide them with a safe and secure work environment. This usually means installing effective and reliable ventilation and dust control systems, and adopting sound maintenance practices to ensure good air quality and meet applicable requirements.

      For processes using combustible or toxic materials, prevention and protection systems must be set up to avoid incidents (leaks, ignitions, explosions). To make an informed choice, you need to understand the issues specific to your operations as well as the flammable substances that are present. You must then identify the risks to mitigate and the proper control solutions to implement. No one can afford a catastrophic event!

      Comply with environmental regulations

      Stacks, vents and exhaust systems, access roads, bulk storage: your installations have a variety of emission sources that could include many air contaminants, each with their own unique characteristics. In a greener world where social acceptance has become a standard staple, it’s more than important for companies to make sure their environmental impact is kept to a minimum.

      Moreover, when building a new facility or optimizing an existing one, you must demonstrate that your operations will meet applicable regulations and standards by using atmospheric modelling. Sampling and monitoring strategies must also be defined for the contaminants in stacks and at property boundaries. Exceeding the maximum concentrations allowed by law is considered a violation of air quality and environmental regulations and could result in steep fines or even damage to your company’s reputation.
