Dust Management UK specialises in the control and mitigation of dust and dust related nuisance from a variety of sources.
Nuisance dust emissions from construction, demolition and other civil engineering activities are a common problem. Fine particles (less than 10 mm in diameter, known as PM10) from these sources are also now recognised as significant local sources of pollution. Owing to their small size, they can be carried long distances from sites even in light winds and may therefore have an adverse effect on the local environment and on the health of local residents, as well as on those working on the site.
Under Part IV of the Environment Act 1995 and the UK Air Quality Strategy, Local Authorities are required to work towards achieving national air quality objectives. Construction site operators therefore need to demonstrate that both nuisance dust and fine particle emissions from their sites are adequately controlled and are within acceptable limits
