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.

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.
