Caulmert is urging organisations to get their documentation in order as they face a race against time to submit an annual pollution inventory report.
Companies in England and Scotland must have their reports submitted by 28 February, with businesses in Wales given a later timeframe of 31 March.
The engineering, environmental, and planning consultancy has a highly skilled team ready to support the reporting of annual emissions of certain substances to the air, controlled waters, and land, as well as off-site transfers in waste.
Caulmert, which has offices in St Asaph, Bangor, Altrincham, Nottingham, and Kent, can offer guidance and help organisations complete their forms before the 2023 deadlines.
You must report to the pollution inventory if you:
- Operate under a part A (1) environmental permit and have received a notice under Regulation 60 of the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010
- Operate a sewage treatment works with a capacity at, or over, 100,000 population equivalents
- Dispose of radioactive waste to air, water or sewers covered by a permit issued under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010
- Run an opencast mine or quarry with a surface area over 25 hectares, or an underground mine and related operation (no capacity threshold)
Caulmert environment consultant Harry Caulfield said: “We relish the opportunity to advise other organisations with their pollution inventory reports.
“There is a growing emphasis on protecting the environment, and by offering this service we are helping companies make sure that they are doing their bit.
“Filling out the information can be time consuming and unnecessarily fiddly if you aren’t a regular user of the system.
“Caulmert is here to help any company needing to submit a form by picking up the strain and helping them improve efficiency.”
Recording and simulating gas emissions is a particular area of proficiency for Caulmert, using the probabilistic model GasSim 2.5.
The programme simulates the generation of landfill gas arising from managed or unmanaged sites. It also estimates the amount of this gas that is captured or released as fugitive emissions.
Caulmert environment consultant Sean O’Brien added: “It has become a niche piece of software as businesses and organisations move away from waste.
“The beauty of GasSim 2.5 for those companies needing to focus on landfill gas emissions is that it has the ability to break a site down into specific areas and provide a more accurate result.”
