The Secretary of State has announced that the Environment Bill should include a “legally binding commitment on particulate matter so that no part of the country exceeds the levels recommended by the WHO”.

GRAMM Barrier Systems

GRAMM the UK leading specialist in design, supply & installation of acoustic barriers is now the exclusive EU partner for SmogStop.

SmogStop Barrier, developed by Canadian company ENVISON SQ, reduces air & noise pollution levels in surrounding neighbourhoods and takes a two-pronged approach to reducing air pollution hotspots from major roads, highways and railways.

8 Years in development; the patented aerodynamic design reduces pollution levels by enhancing dispersion so that neighbouring residents can breathe easier. At the same time, a proprietary coating on the barrier actually breaks down the NOx and VOCs that produce smog, transforming them into harmless by-products.

SmogStop Barrier’s angled baffle and double-walled design serve two main purposes. First, they direct traffic emissions between the two walls, where a photocatalytic coating treats the pollutants. Second, they generate vortexes and enhance vertical mixing of emissions with clean air, further decreasing pollution levels in surrounding neighbourhoods.

The proprietary coating we’ve developed transforms smog-producing NOX and VOCs into harmless gases and water, powered purely by sunlight.

SmogStop Barrier incorporates CLEARSoundBlok: a sound-reducing, break-resistant and highly transparent grade of acrylic.

The result? A dramatic reduction in noise and air pollution — without sacrificing sunlight.

Over the course of a year, a single km of SmogStop Barrier can remove 16 tonnes of NOX— the equivalent of taking 200,000 cars off that stretch of road.

Recent field tests in Ontario proving results of over 58% reduction of emissions compared to a standard barrier.

Exhibiting this year

Exhibit with us

Routes to Clean Air attracts consultants, air quality practitioners, leading manufacturers, local authorities officers and regulators, academics and researchers providing an excellent opportunity for organisations to interact with their target audience of experts and buyers. This conference is a platform for expert practitioners to share knowledge, therefore there are a limited number of spaces for exhibitors.

Benefits of exhibiting:

  • Listing on the event page on both the IAQM and Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) websites.
