Today’s cities have an unavoidable impact on the environment, but adverse effects can be minimised. Sweco’s water and environmental specialists work with reducing harmful emissions, recycling waste and ensuring access to clean water. We also offer solutions that reduce climate impact and adapt society to a changed climate.
Good air quality has a significant bearing on human health. It is important to continually investigate emissions using internal checks and for example during permit application processes, in order to ensure that environmental quality standards are not breached.
Sweco’s experts work continuously on a substantial number of investigations relating to air quality. We help investigate and describe the consequences of a company’s emissions and we propose preventive measures to reduce their environmental impact and to ensure compliance with legal requirements and environmental targets.
Sweco uses a number of different calculation models in order to determine and describe the consequences of an emission in an optimal way, in respect of dispersion, exposure and fallout of particles, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, hydrocarbons and odours, etc.
Our environmental consultants produce documentation for masterplans and detailed development plans, we calculate dispersions from chimney and other emissions, from industrial plants. They also conduct odour investigations in relation to wastewater treatment plants and prepare documentation for infrastructure projects such as ports, railways, metros, roads and airports.
