Deploying air quality monitoring networks as part of smart city initiatives.
AQMesh pods are used in a wide range of applications throughout the world, and the list is still growing as opportunities for small sensor air quality systems continue to develop and global air quality has become a key environmental and political focus. Here are just a few of the major areas for air quality monitoring where AQMesh can provide a solution.
Roadside outdoor air quality monitoring in cities, town centres and residential areas.
Perimeter and fence line monitoring of air quality around oil and gas facilities.
Using AQMesh to monitor local air quality around schools.
Breathe London preliminary analysis results reveal substantial NO2 pollution reductions after the UK government implemented restrictions to reduce the spread of Covid-19, particularly after social distancing was strongly encouraged on 16 March.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that long-term exposure to poor air quality can have the same damaging effect as smoking 20 cigarettes a day, with air pollution shown to be more dangerous than passive smoking.
On 9th April The Sunday Times reported that employers have been told they are legally obliged to protect their staff from diesel fumes — and could be sued if workers develop cancer later in life.
Two AQMesh pods were used to measure NO, NO2, O3 and CO during May and June 2017 at Upplands Motor Stockholm AB car dealership in Sweden, located on the highway between Stockholm city centre and Arlanda airport.
S I Analytics has supplied 65 AQMesh pods into Southern Africa since 2016, many of which are used in mining applications. The small, post-mounted air pollution monitoring units measure a range of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter, as well as environmental conditions.
Extensive research has shown that indoor air quality is often worse than outdoors. Closed system buildings trap harmful particles inside, and external air intakes can bring in more polluted air from outside.
