Inside Air Quality Control (AQC)
The calculations, monitoring requirements and limits for effectively managing sulphur dioxide emissions are technically complex, and take into consideration a number of variable factors. These include understanding and predicting the interaction of emissions with various atmospheric, weather and ground conditions, which can change rapidly.
Our AQC operators provide daily forecast and planning advice to our smelter operations, and use real-time air quality data to monitor emissions, working both proactively and reactively to minimise the impact of sulphur dioxide in our community and ensure compliance with our regulatory limits.
Depending on the outcomes of their investigations, the AQC may escalate action following the alert process.
