Mrs. Juliette LAURENT (International Relations Coordinator), Mrs. Sabine KLOTZ (International Relations Officer), Mr. Olivier PERRUSSEL (Studies Engineer - Air Quality), Mr. Jordan BUREAU (Studies Engineer and Forecaster) and Mrs. Léa SCHMITZ (Air quality modeling project manager) then presented them with AIRPARIF, its missions, its working methods, and the French regulations in force in terms of air quality.
In addition, Mr. Jérôme LAPLAGNE received the delegation at the ENVEA factory in Poissy, to present to them the most widely used measurement devices and techniques in France and around the world.
This visit is part of the final phase of the project, when the platform is about to be delivered to the DEEC, in Senegal, and the local teams will be trained in its use. Its purpose was to discuss working methods, existing technologies, and regulations regarding air quality in France.
