AQMesh to feature at PNW SETAC Annual Conference 2021

A collaborative research project between City of Kitchener, Wilfred Laurier University and Hemmera Envirochem Inc, which uses AQMesh pods installed across Kitchener, will be presented at the Pacific Northwest SETAC Annual Conference in the USA next week.

The presentation will address how numerous “low cost” air quality monitors can be used in cities and municipalities to map pollution on a larger scale, using the small network of AQMesh pods installed at multiple schools in Kitchener as an example.

Ambilabs, AQMesh distributor for North America, supplied the pods and provides ongoing support to the project.

The virtual conference for the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry takes place on 15th-16th April 2021 and is free to attend.

AQMesh has been used in a number of similar studies to prove the legitimacy of small sensor systems for city-wide air quality monitoring networks. This includes the ground breaking Breathe London pilot, in which 100 AQMesh pods were deployed across London (UK) for two years, mapping local air pollution on an unprecedented level. AQMesh pods are also currently installed across 50 zip code areas in Minneapolis – St. Paul, in order to study how local pollution levels differ across the two cities.
