  • Towards a common air quality assessment method

    Air pollution indices are tools that can be used to compare air quality in different geographical regions. In a new study, researchers evaluated the 'BC indices', primarily designed to assess health risks from particular pollutants over a given time and space, to compare air quality in Italy, Germany and Poland. The indices could be useful for policy makers developing pollution control ...

  • Air Monitors launches nanoparticle detector

    Traditional methods for measuring airborne particulate matter measure particle mass per unit air volume, usually with an upper size limit of x microns (PMx etc.). However, from a human health perspective, the particles of most interest are those that penetrate deep into the lungs. For this reason, Air Monitors has launched the Naneos Partector nanoparticle detector in the UK. The Swiss made ...

  • Cyclists map Antwerp air pollution with on-bike monitors

    Cyclists with pollution monitors and GPS trackers attached to their bicycles have produced detailed maps of Antwerp’s air quality, as part of a recent study. Their data show that a gap of just a few metres between cycle lanes and cars significantly reduces cyclists’ risk of inhaling high levels of ultrafine particle pollution. Personal ‘mobile monitoring’ is attracting ...

  • Monitors inform local air quality management strategy

    In North Ayrshire, Scotland, monitoring activities have demonstrated that the main local air quality issues are related to traffic congestion caused by a section of the High Street in Irvine, which is being used as a bus terminus, and by queuing traffic at New Street in Dalry. In both locations the pollutant of most concern is Nitrogen Dioxide. ...

  • Landfill sites: to air or not to air?

    The EU Landfill Directive sets out requirements to landfill waste in the least harmful way for the environment. For example, it aims to reduce the amount of biodegradable Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) going to landfill, and promotes the use of reasonable landfill fees under the 'polluter pays principle', thus making recovery an alternative to landfilling. However, although landfill will never be ...

  • Real-world monitoring of air quality using low cost air quality sensors

    The emergence of sensors capable of measuring the gases and particles that make up air pollution, especially in cities and industrial areas, has driven many academic studies which evaluate the sensors and compare performance against reference methodology. Such projects provide valuable and thorough assessment, but they currently work slower than the pace of low cost sensor system development. In ...

  • Trees could be used to monitor air pollution simply and cheaply

    It may be possible to use trees to monitor levels of air pollution in cities, new research suggests. A Belgian study found evidence that leaves of urban trees change both chemically and physiologically when exposed to different levels of air pollution. If these changes are carefully quantified, trees could provide cheap and widespread ‘bio-indicators’, the study’s authors ...

  • FIDAS PM monitors chosen for Irish air quality network

    Following a public consultation in 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of Ireland has awarded a contract for up to 44 particulate matter (PM) monitors to enhance and expand the existing monitoring network. The successful bid was submitted jointly by EMS Environmental Monitoring Systems Ltd. (Dublin) and Air Monitors Ltd. (UK). The award is a major component of the EPA’s new ...
