NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.
The Environmental Management Authority (EMA) is inviting suitably qualified consultants/firms to submit proposals to supply, install and commission an Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Station (AAQMS) in Trinidad. All equipment must be capable of meeting the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) approved methods [(Federal Reference Methods (FRM) or Federal Equivalent Methods (FEM)].
The Environmental Management Authority (EMA) is mandated under Section 49 (3) of the Environmental Management Act, Chapter 35:05 (EM Act) to develop and implement a programme for the management of air pollution. The Air Pollution Rules (APR), 2014 came into force in January 2015, and regulates emissions from point sources and ambient air quality, giving precedence to meeting the permissible levels for ambient air.
The EMA established two continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations (AAQMS) in Trinidad in 2008 and 2012, respectively, and subsequently replaced these with two newer AAQMS in October 2015. The establishment of an additional AAQMS will complement those already established and contribute to the development of an elaborate network for the collection of ambient air quality data and information for more informed decision making.
