Section Title

Air pollutions contributes to both human health and our planet health inducing global warming and climate change.

Collecting data about air quality and air pollutions is crucial to understand The quality of the air we breathe is intricately linked to the health of our planet's climate. Air pollution, characterized by harmful substances released into the atmosphere, significantly contributes to climate change—a global challenge that affects every corner of the world. Pollutants like carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide not only deteriorate air quality but also act as potent greenhouse gases, trapping heat in the Earth's atmosphere and leading to a rise in global temperatures.


This increase in global temperatures exacerbates the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, disrupts ecosystems, and threatens biodiversity. Moreover, air pollution directly impacts human health, increasing the risk of respiratory diseases, heart conditions, and strokes. Vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing health conditions, are especially at risk.


Addressing air quality issues is thus an essential step towards mitigating climate change and safeguarding our environment and health. Efforts to improve air quality, such as reducing emissions from industrial processes, transitioning to clean energy sources, and enhancing vehicle emissions standards, also contribute to slowing the pace of climate change. By understanding the interconnectedness of air quality and climate change, we can take comprehensive actions that protect our planet and ensure a healthier future for all.


Why monitoring air quality?

Monitoring air quality is crucial for both environmental and public health reasons. Airborne particles, gases and dust can have detrimental effects on human health, leading to respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, and exacerbated conditions such as asthma and allergies. Particularly, fine dust particles (PM2.5 and PM10) are small enough to penetrate deep into the lungs and enter the bloodstream, causing long-term health issues.

Beyond health, dust is very bad for equipment including HVAC and computers – and other electrical equipment used in the building. It can lead to equipment failure, reduced efficiency and higher maintenance cost.

The benefit of continuous monitoring is to detect
