Monday, 19 June 2017 at 1:10:PM
Markes International (Llantrisant, UK) has announced that its automated air-monitoring systems for both canister and tube sampling have been officially endorsed by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection. This cements their long-standing reputation as high-performance, well-designed and
cost-effective technologies for the analysis of volatile and semi-volatile
organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs).
The endorsed technologies, which are based on the company’s
UNITY-xr, CIA Advantage and TD100-xr instruments,
were jointly granted a ‘3iPET’ Environmental Technology Award following a
rigorous six-month assessment procedure involving independent review,
meetings and site visits. The award was officially received by Markes’ Sales
Manager for the Asia-Pacific region, Dr Chris Llewellyn, at a ceremony in Beijing
on 12 June.
By providing an official government ‘seal of approval’ on Markes’ leading
air-monitoring technologies, the award is expected to greatly increase the
appeal of the company’s equipment to Chinese scientists when making purchasing decisions.
The receipt of the 3iPET award is also a significant accomplishment for
Markes as a company. Markes’ Technical Marketing Director, Dr Massimo Santoro,
said “As well as being a reassurance to potential customers, the award helps increase
the visibility of Markes in China, through exposure to regional audiences on
government websites, at industry forums and at official communication events.”
“In fact, the award comes at a time when we are already making
significant efforts to extend the reach of our business into China. The current
focus on environmental protection in China is obviously a major driver in the
field of analytical chemistry, and the benefits for both our company and our
customers will be strengthened further by this endorsement.”
The 3iPET Awards are run by the International Center for Environmental
Technology of China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection, and are presented
to well-designed, cost-effective, technologies with practical application for
prevention, control and monitoring of pollution in air, water and soil. This
year the organising committee recognised 33 technologies in the field of
environmental protection, including emission-reduction and remediation systems
as well as analytical instruments.
