Project : CLAIRO - CLear AIR and Climate Adaptation in Ostrava and other cities
Ville : Ostrava
The measuring instruments are now on-site, launching the first key phase of the project. Ostrava’s technical university has installed new-generation measuring technology at a location with high concentrations of atmospheric pollutants – close to a metallurgical plant that is one the biggest polluters in the region. With the new technologies it is now possible to monitor measured concentrations of atmospheric pollutants, mainly benzo(a)pyrene, on-line, without the need for complicated laboratory analysis – and this represents a major step forward compared to standard measurement processes.
