The ATEM company works in environmental assessment for past 20 years. ATEM mainly focuses on traffic emissions and emissions dispersion modeling.
In addition to standard studies for local authorities, central government organs, roads maintainers and private corporations ATEM works on research, methodological and conceptual projects on the field of air pollutants emissions and air quality modeling. In the long term, ATEM is probably the only workplace in the Czech Republic that is focused on specific questions e. g. modeling of the air pollution on road intersections, dust resuspension assessment or specifying emissions from high duty vehicles. In the next list, there are some successfully solved projects (between 2000 – 2010):
The ATEM company belongs to one of the major workplaces on the field of air quality modeling in the scale of large cities and regions. ATEM elaborates periodical assessment of the contemporary air quality in the district of Prague in 2-years intervals (so far 9 times) and model prediction of the future state for the purposes of urban planning. ATEM also realized the air quality modeling for many of regions in the Czech Republic (regions Středočeský, Jihočeský, Plzeňský, Karlovarský, Liberecký, Vysočina, Moravskoslezský region) and the assessment of road transport impacts on air quality in the whole Czech Republic.
Amongst other main activities of the ATEM studio belong estimation of air quality impact for given sources of pollution, proposals of measures to improve the air quality, acoustical studies, noise level measurements, environmental impact assessment (EIA, SEA), health impact assessment (HIA), geographic information system (GIS), studies in the field of nature protection and landscape impact assessment. Since it was established, ATEM has worked on approximately 2500 such studies.
