Europe's role in delivering clean air for our cities
About Dan Williams, Chair of EIC's Air Quality Working Group
Dan Williams is the Chair of The Environmental Industries Commission (EIC) Air Quality Working Group which has driven much of the work towards a national framework for clean air zones and contributed to policy development and implementation of emissions regulation of Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) for construction sites across London. As Regional Key Account Manager at Johnson Matthey PLC, Dan is responsible for the Heavy-Duty Diesel Non-Road Original Equipment and On-Road Retrofit businesses. The Johnson Matthey retrofit business provides cost effective solutions which not only reduce the harmful emissions of older, more polluting vehicles such as buses operating in cities, but extend their natural fleet life too. To date Johnson Matthey and development partners have provided NOX and PM abatement solutions to over 3,000 vehicles across Europe and other parts of the world; of which around 1,000 of these are operating on London buses.
With air pollution claiming thousands of lives a year and high up the political agenda there is an urgent need to combine smart policy making and technological innovation to deliver high air quality technical standards that are effectively enforced. Dan will look at the role of The Environmental Industries Commission and its member companies in making this happen.
