MEDIA RELEASE - 24 February, 2016 

Australia’s peak body for air quality professionals, the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ) expresses its grave concern about the proposed cutbacks to climate and related environmental research in CSIRO, especially in the Oceans & Atmosphere unit.  

The statement by CSIRO’s Larry Marshall that “the science is settled” significantly misrepresents the climate research done by CSIRO. “If the proposed cuts to fundamental measurements and model development proceed, it will devastate Australia’s ability to design and assess the performance of mitigation strategies, which are claimed to be the focus of CSIRO’s redirection of research.”, said Conjoint Associate Professor Howard Bridgman, Immediate Past-President of CASANZ.

MEDIA RELEASE - 23 December, 2015

The Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ), the peak body for air quality professionals, welcomes the National Clean Air Agreement released last Monday by Commonwealth, State and Territory environment ministers. 

CASANZ President, Dr Mark Hibberd said, “The framework of the National Clean Air Agreement is an encouraging sign that air quality is firmly on the national agenda. If the actions in the two-year work plan are undertaken, then we should see a real improvement in air quality.”  To view the full media release, visit the Media page: click here.

 

CASANZ announced as a Clean Air Champion

Minister for the Envionment, the Honorary Greg Hunt MP, announced the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand as a Clean Air Champion.

The clean air champions are a select group of representatives from industry and academia who help to raise community awareness and knowledge of air quality and initiatives being undertaken to support a clean air future. Champions work with the Department to support industry and community engagement on clean air activities.

MEDIA RELEASE - 17 October, 2015

The Volkswagen diesel scandal is shining a spotlight on the importance of monitoring and managing potentially deadly exhaust emissions in Australia.

When scientists and researchers arrived at Melbourne’s Pullman Hotel overlooking Albert Park Lake for an air-quality conference on September 21, the room was abuzz, electrified with conversation. Two days earlier, the US Environmental Protection Agency announced it had extracted a confession of diesel emissions data trickery from German automaker Volkswagen.  To view the full media release, visit the Media page: click here.

DISCUSSION NETWORK: ​
Technical Aspects of Residential Wood Smoke Measurement

Wood smoke from residential heating was frequently mentioned as a significant component of air pollution in Australia and New Zealand in papers at the Melbourne CASANZ Conference (20-23 September, 2015).

As a result of some informal discussions during the Conference, a group of CASANZ members thought it could be useful to establish an email list of people interested in contributing to discussion on the technical aspects of measuring wood smoke (both ambient measurement and direct flue emissions) and the interpretation of these measurements.  The idea is to keep the discussion fairly focussed so, for the moment at least, issues of policy, community education and health impacts of wood smoke are not included.

John Todd 
has agreed to act as a contact point to see how much interest there is.  So if you would like to be part of this network, contact John via email and he will send you more details about the present thinking on how the network might work and what it might achieve.  He will also seek your views/ideas on improving the functioning of the network.
