Tarmac Cement & Lime’s Paul Firth has been recognised for ‘going the extra mile’ in the field of emissions monitoring. Paul has been chosen to receive an industry Individual Recognition Award, endorsed by trade body, the Source Testing Association (STA).

Tarmac’s senior managers nominated Firth, an emissions monitoring technician, to receive the award as an acknowledgement of the contribution he makes to environmental awareness and the sharing of best practice. The award is sponsored by CES Environmental Instruments Ltd.

“Many congratulations to Paul on this well-deserved award,” said Mike Eberlin, Managing Director of Tarmac Cement and Lime. “Paul is a passionate advocate for being at the forefront of new emissions monitoring technology – we are very grateful for his dedication. This award is recognition of the commitment he brings to our business approach to emissions compliance. This is especially important over recent years, with new more challenging legislation being introduced.”

“Paul has been an active member of the STA for many years,” said Mark Elliott, Chairman of the STA. “His contribution and knowledge are invaluable to the association and the industry. He has helped shape industry standards in emission monitoring that benefit all sectors and is always keen to share his experience and knowledge by participating in our quarterly meetings through discussion and giving technical presentations. In 2018, he took over the role as the STA process operator officer. It was an honour to be involved in presenting this recognition award to Paul. From all involved with the STA, a big thank you for your time and the dedication you have given to the industry.”

“It is a pleasure and privilege to work with Paul,” said David Slack of CES Environment Instruments. “His hard work and dedication in helping the environment ensures the air we breathe is cleaner. Well done Paul!”

“I am honoured to have received the award and to be part of a great internal and external team,” said Firth. “Certainly we all work well together and I recognise that this is very much a team effort so I wanted to extend the recognition to David Slack, Mark Elliott, and the STA, who have all provided valuable support during my time in the role. A special think you should go to David Shenton, Senior Environmental Manager at Tarmac Cement & Lime, for the excellent support and mentoring he provides.”
