Groups / Air quality


Air pollution, especially in urban areas, is one of the largest public health issues of our time accounting for an estimated 40,000 premature deaths a year in the UK.

EIC’s air quality group explores the ways in which technology and innovation can help society to tackle dangerous air pollution. Participating members are at the frontline of this fight – either through developing the technology to reduce pollution, or through monitoring, modelling and interpretation of data which allows local authorities and metro-mayors to take informed and evidence-based decisions.

The last few years have seen plenty of progress in this space with our move to electric vehicles and the introduction of low emission zones in cities across the country.

However, we now need to explore interim measures on the road to zero emission vehicles, alternative fuel sources such as stoves and construction machinery, and increase research into the impact of poor indoor air quality – even more important following the pandemic.

The group informs EIC’s  thought-leadership in this area producing innovative yet tangible proposals to improve air quality, responds to government consultations, holds events, writes articles for industry press, and regularly welcomes policymakers and industry experts as guests.

It meets quarterly and the chair is Jim Mills of ACOEM.
