Electromagnetic field measurements

  • Measurement and calculation of the electromagnetic field emitted by radio frequency sources: transmitting antenna for telecommunication systems (mobile phone, broadcasting, TV, Wi-Fi networks, etc.);
  • Measurement and calculation of the electrical field and the magnetic field at extremely low, low, and intermediate frequencies produced by electricity transport and distribution networks, railways, smart meters, magnetisers and demagnetisers, welding stations, NMR, etc.;
  • Monitoring of compliance with standards applicable to the public (decree of 3 April 2009 concerning transmitting antennas, recommendation 1999/519/EC) and workers (R.D. of 20 May 2016);
  • Measurements taken at the request of those living near antennas (mission conferred by the Walloon Minister for the Environment).

Measurement of air quality for urban developments

The ExTraCar project concerns air quality measurements. The readings taken show levels of black carbon atmospheric pollution, and map the areas with high concentrations of these fine particles. Simulations carried out are used to complete the image at the level of a municipality and assess the effect of urban development designed to reduce exposure to pollutants from traffic or decisions aiming to reduce air pollution.
