Solving air quality issues for industry using technology and data
Summary:
A UK SME has developed hardware, software and data analytics capable of monitoring air quality in industrial locations (ranging from harsh environments to offices). The technology offers a complete turn-key solution including deployment of sensors, monitoring, data collection -Y- analytics. It provides users the ability to prevent workers and local communities being exposed to harmful levels of pollutants. Commercial agreement with technical assistance and research cooperation are sought.
Description:
Founded in 2015, the UK company identifies and implements measures to reduce airborne particles and minimise exposure to employees and communities.

It does this by offering bespoke turn-key solutions tailored to the specific requirements of partners. This includes deploying environmental detection sensors, GPS locators, data collection equipment, monitoring software and providing data analytics expertise to create a detailed picture of the local air quality, at any given time. The company is then able to display this technical contextual data in a way that is easily and quickly understood by all employees.

The company´s technology is particularly well suited to a number of industrial sectors such as:

Ports, which often harbour multiple sources of pollution, with a mixture of shipping, large machinery and bulk materials contributing to a plethora of airborne substances.

Vehicle depots: vehicles are a common source of Particulates, CO2 and NO2, with companies managing fleets of vehicle having numerous obligations to minimise emissions and exposure to operators.

Recycling centres: modern recycling centres process many different types of material. Some of these (e.g. hardwood and gypsum) have occupational exposure limits.

Manufacturing processes: including machining and soldering that often produce emissions which need to be monitored and controlled

Construction: vehicle exhaust fumes contain many harmful pollutants including NO2 and particulate matter that is known to penetrate deep into the lungs and increase the risk of developing respiratory conditions such as asthma. Dust is often problematic in large construction projects.

The UK company is looking to use its core expertise in environmental sensors, software and analytics, to develop commercial agreements with technical assistance.

It is also interested in developing next generation products and services under a research cooperation agreement.
It has identified that Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be used to improve the company´s data analytics and would like to engage with universities and research institutions working in the field of machine learning and AI to see if their research could be integrated in to existing products and services, to create new ones.
Advantages and Innovations:
The main advantage of this technology offer is the ability to produce a detailed map of the air quality in a certain location and display it in a way that can be easily understood.

The contextual data that is produced allows companies to make informed decisions about how best to deploy people and equipment to remove the risks from emissions and contamination.

The technology can show where and when there are air quality issues at a specific site. For example a large construction site during concrete pouring, chemical handing at ports, ventilation faults in offices.

For health and safety professionals who manage one or multiple sites, the company has developed a cloud based portal service. This allows quick comparison of data from multiple sensors to isolate the processes/sectors/sites that need fixing.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The UK company´s expertise centres around IoT hardware, analysis of data and monitoring personal exposure.

For a commercial agreements with technical assistance, the company is looking for partners who operate in the following areas:
- Occupational health and exposure to airborne substances
- Optimisation of operations on Industrial sites
- Smart buildings -Y- advanced HVAC systems

And for research cooperation agreements, the UK company is interested in developing a next generation of products and services. It has identified that Artificial Intelligence could be used to improve the company´s data analytic and would like to engage with universities and research institutions working in the field of AI to integrate it in to existing products and services, to create new ones.
