More Air Quality Monitoring Stations to be Build Along High Traffic Areas

More Air Quality Monitoring Stations to be Build Along High Traffic AreasThe city will be setting up three more air quality monitoring stations especially along high traffic roads before the year ends. Several residents have visited some of the air quality monitoring stations during the World Earth Day activity that was organized by the human settlements and environment commission.

The residents were given statistics showing that the vehicle emissions are shown reports that vehicle emissions is the number one source of the air pollution around the city accounting for 38 percent of local PM2.5 emissions. To help increase comprehensive monitoring of air pollution, city officials are planning to build a 350 meter tall monitoring tower. PM2.5 emission has microscopic air pollutants that penetrate the human lung which can cause cardiovascular disease, asthma or cancer.

Curbing emissions is a priority and measures have already been made in improving the quality of gasoline that is used in the city along with tightening emission standards and banning vehicles that fail to meet these standards and promoting the use of environmentally friendly vehicles.
