CEM 2014 –enthusiastic feedback from Istanbul

Sep 03 2014 Read 1405 Times

The organisers of CEM 2014, the emissions monitoring event that took place in Istanbul during May, have expressed their delight with the feedback that they received following this year’s Conference and Exhibition. “Increasing awareness of air quality issues coupled with international climate change initiatives have resulted in a growing number of regulations and standards relating to emissions monitoring in a wide variety of industries. As a result, CEM 2014 included speakers from 13 different nations and attracted delegates from 42 countries,” commented CEM organiser Marcus Pattison.

CEM 2014 ( was the 11th in a series of international conferences and exhibitions focusing on emissions monitoring, providing visitors with an opportunity to catch up on the latest regulatory requirements and standards and also the technologies that are being developed to comply with them.  Summarising the reasons for the event’s success, David Graham, a delegate from E.ON (UK), said:  “CEM 2014 brought together many different interest groups: manufacturers/exhibitors, users, environmental regulators and researchers.  This forum is invaluable for the emissions monitoring community.” Olli Antson from the VTT Technical Research Centre in Finland agreed, adding: “It was a good conference with up-to-date information on legislation and standards, and practical information on monitoring.” Reijo Tolberg from Eesti Energia AS in Estonia described the event simply as “The best conference in its field.”

Technical expertise and knowledge was in abundance for visitors and conferees with most of the world’s leading players in the emissions monitoring market represented on one of the 52 trade stands during the CEM exhibition , including instrumentation manufacturers, analytical service providers, regulators and accreditation organisations. Delegates travelled to Istanbul from around the globe and included official groups from Iran and the Nigerian petrochemical sector.

With such a high level of attendance from global players in the emissions monitoring sector, the exhibitors were naturally very pleased with the event. For example, Andre Dabinet from Horiba Europe said: “CEM 2014 provided an excellent opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with a variety of CEM experts and equipment manufacturers in a stunning location,” and Robert Baxter from B3 Systems (USA) commented: “I have attended 3 CEM conferences and each one outdoes the last; CEM is absolutely one of the best conferences we attend.”

Since the inaugural meeting in 1997, the CEM conferences have been held in the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Turkey and the next event, CEM 2016 will take place during May  in Lisbon, Portugal.
