Meet our conference sponsor

Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants (CERC) is a leading provider of expert air quality services.

CERC’s Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System (ADMS) models are widely used across the world and include ADMS-Screen, ADMS 5, ADMS-Roads, ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Airport. These models cater for problems of different complexity: ADMS-Screen is used to assess the potential impact of a single point source, ADMS 5 for assessing impacts of industrial sites, ADMS-Roads for road traffic emissions (for instance in small towns or rural road networks) and ADMS-Urban is a high-resolution air quality management system for complex combinations of emissions such as occur in urban areas. ADMS-Urban is ideal for modelling planning and policy scenarios in urban areas, for example for the development of Clean Air Zones (CAZ). ADMS-Airport is used to model the impacts of emissions at airports and has been used extensively at the UK’s major airports.  Other software available from CERC includes;

  • EMIT, the emissions inventory database tool
  • FLOWSTAR-Energy for wind energy assessments and forecasting
  • GASTAR for modelling the dispersion of dense gas releases.

CERC provides a number of scheduled and customised training courses for all the ADMS models to suit modellers with varying levels of experience, as well as a comprehensive software support package.

CERC’s highly experienced Consultants provide a range of services, including: air quality modelling for permitting, planning and policy scenarios; emissions inventory compilation for both toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases; and modelling of hazardous releases, for example for COMAH assessments. CERC also provides air quality forecasting and alert services for local authorities, including airTEXT in the UK ( and Riga airTEXT in Latvia (, using ADMS-Urban in combination with the EU’s CAMS regional modelling system. Bespoke air quality forecasting and alert services are also available. For more details of CERC’s services or to download demonstration software visit
