Aachen/Canberra, October 2006 – The New South Wales Department of Environment and Conservation decided to improve air quality monitoring with AQUISnet from KISTERS Germany. This confirms the corporate strategy of KISTERS that resource management is a global requirement best met by continuous efforts for technology leadership.
Air quality, along with water issues, continue to be the two most important environmental issues in New South Wales. Especially within the Greater Metropolitan Region (Sydney, Lower Hunter and Illawarra regions) which is home to around 70 per cent of the NSW population, two main problems persist – photochemical smog and particle pollution (brown haze).
With the thousandfold proven KISTERS time series management inside AQUISnet offers the complete package: air quality data acquisition, plausibilization and validation, detection and alarming of threshold exceeds, station and device registers, control of measurement devices, manifold reports and typical data analysis of air quality parameters (NOx, SO2, O3, Dust Hydrocarbon…) and meteorological parameters (temperature, humidity, precipitation, radiation).
In Germany, KISTERS air quality monitoring systems are used by federal and state environmental agencies as well as for emission monitoring in industry. In 2004 KISTERS Resource Management spread its wings to the Pacific market. Now with the NSW DEC as prominent customer KISTERS ties up to its worldwide presence in the field of water resources management.
