Air quality expert EarthSense announces CMS SupaTrak as a new distributor of the Zephyr® air quality senor into the waste logistics sector across the UK, France and Germany.
Mounting the Zephyr® sensors on waste disposal trucks, which access virtually every street on at least a fortnightly basis, will allow EarthSense to capture levels of pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM2.5) on an unprecedented scale.
Jason Airey, Managing Director CMS SupaTrak & Roland Leigh, Technical Director EarthSense.
CMS SupaTrak will provide manufacturers of precision-made refuse disposal trucks including Dennis Eagle, with Zephyr® sensors to collect real-time, hyper-local air quality data.
The data will be used to produce heat maps of local air pollutants along the waste-collection routes, accessible via a bespoke data platform.
EarthSense Managing Director Tom Hall said: “Collaborating with CMS SupaTrak will explore the deployment of sensors on to waste disposal trucks that take well established routes collecting continuous, real-time air pollution monitoring, street by street, including remote neighbourhoods.
This data will be used to significantly enhance our global air quality model.
We are excited to welcome CMS SupaTrak as our second Zephyr® distributor this year and confident the partnership will set an important standard in the world of transport and logistics.”
The project will allow local and central government personnel to understand how air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide behave in constantly evolving urban environments, providing a valuable evidence-base of live air quality data for planning purposes.
CMS SupaTrak Managing Director Jason Airey comments: “We are very excited to be working with EarthSense for our waste sector customers, enabling us to help monitor air quality across the UK and Europe. Working with other partners we hope to develop a number of interventions to reduce pollution.’
