Frequently Asked Questions

How does EMSOL work?

EMSOL deploys real-time air and noise quality monitors across a range of locations including construction sites, loading bay, and street. With real-time NO2, PM and noise level monitoring, instant alerts for when pollution hits customised thresholds and camera technology to provide insight into the source of emissions, EMSOL provides first-of-its-kind identification of the root cause of pollution.

The data, alerts and video evidence can be viewed through an easy-to-use cloud-based online platform providing you access to your data whenever you need it. To find out more go to How EMSOL Works.

EMSOL’s mission is to empower our customers to take real-time targeted action on site-based air, dust and noise emissions.

How is EMSOL different from our current monitoring installation?

The problem with existing monitoring installations is that they simply log retrospective average data. Spikes are missed and there is no useful context to understand what may have caused them. EMSOL’s real time monitoring can notify staff when a spike occurs so that action can be taken, and our camera technology provides a record to understand what happened, so it can potentially be mitigated in the future.

How quickly can I get EMSOL set up at my site or facility?

Great news! Installation is typically a quick process when carried out by our experienced engineers. In many circumstances equipment is installed onto lamp posts using the post’s power supply.

How secure is EMSOL’s data storage?

EMSOL uses enterprise-grade Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure and protects data by design.

Which devices does the EMSOL Platform work with?

The EMSOL portal can be viewed from a standard web-browser. We provide a lightweight interface for adding information from site, where bandwidth is limited.

How do you measure air quality and noise?

We measure particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10), NO2 gas and noise levels by installing our sensors at your site.

What makes EMSOL unique compared other air quality monitoring?

EMSOL’s offers a new level of insight compared to traditional air quality monitoring:

  • Actionable. Identifies specific root causes of pollution at the source and provides real-time insight making our pollution data actionable. The inclusion of video analytics in our technology means you have ‘eyes on’ pollution issues to confidently attribute pollution events and take action to reduce them.
  • Preventative. Early warning notifications to the user enable preventative action before a problem emerges so you can avoid exceedances of company, government and international pollution standards.
  • Simple. EMSOL’s Platform insights provide a simple way for customers to use scientific-based data to understand what is happening on their site, or across the supply chain. Previously, understanding pollution and actually reducing it relied on historic and untargeted data. We provide ‘need-to-know’ air and noise pollution data, offer enhanced insights for better attribution and deliver the ability to evidence improvement and compare performance with environmental standards.
What is a typical EMSOL deployment?

A typical deployment includes air quality and noise sensors, camera technology and our cloud-based platform. We install, maintain and suport the equipment during the contract.

Can EMSOL work across multiple sites?

Yes, EMSOL multiple facilities or sites can be accessed from your single user login.

How many users can access the EMSOL platform?

During deployment, we set access rights for EMSOL that define exactly who can log into the platform. Different users can see different views depending on those access rights.

Can EMSOL help companies monitor supply chains?

Our camera technology allows you to record the presence of your own fleet and supply chain on the site when spikes occur. This enables you to attribute contractors or specific vehicles to the pollution impact they may create – opening new possibilities to reduce site pollution.
