After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply your skills to systems specification, contracting for systems, implementing and negotiating approvals, and environmental emissions management
  • Understand the concepts behind air pollution control systems
  • Identify practical approaches for environmental compliance
  • Manage air quality issues for a variety of projects

Air pollution control has made significant advances over the past decade in the management of air pollutants. However increasingly stringent operational air quality limits are being applied and facilities must look to new approaches to achieve and maintain compliance. In particular there are additional requirements that will become problematic for some industries as emissions limits or emission caps are ratcheted down.

This seminar will provide a look at air pollution control systems, including aspects of the engineering design of such systems as it may impact systems specification and selection. The seminar will also look ahead to some of the newer technologies that are becoming available.

Course Outline

Stephen Lamming, Ph.D., E.P.

Stephen Lamming PhD, EP.

Now mostly retired, Stephen was until 2017, a Principal Consultant with the Wood Group (formerly Amec Foster Wheeler Environment & Infrastructure) in the field of air quality management. With more than 40 years of experience in air quality management, his expertise includes emissions assessment, air monitoring, dispersion modelling, and climate change mitigation/adaptation. Dr. Lamming has worked with municipal, industrial, and resource sector clients across Canada and internationally to assess climate impacts, determine emissions, prepare and execute sampling programs, conduct transport and dispersion modelling, assess community impact, develop abatement and monitoring strategies, and prepare permit documentation. He has also been involved in air quality assessment and management studies (including greenhouse gases) as part of the federal and provincial environmental assessment process in the areas of oil & gas, mining, thermal power, major industry projects and forest products. He is a Director of the AWMA Ontario Section, a member of ISO technical committees, and continues to keep abreast of the latest trends in air quality management and control.
