Air Quality means state of air around us. Good Air quality denotes non polluted and clean air. Air quality monitoring is process of sampling and testing of air. It helps to understand quality of air by pollutants and over the period of time. It also gives trends and patterns about air quality whether it is improving or degrading.
Importance of Air quality monitoring
Once pollutants are emitted into the air they dictated by weather. Weather all around the world is extremely variable. Only studying air pollution is not adequate to estimate air quality. Also air pollution is very complicated in terms of pollutants and their effects on buildings and roads.
This is where air quality monitoring comes into the picture. It can help us to measure types of pollutants and their concentrations which further can be analyzed and interpreted. This information can be used to take actions based on trends.
It can also help us to determine which areas in country are more pollutants, which type of pollutants are increasing relating to industrial pollution and traffic.
Air quality data can be used in many ways like what will be the % drop in pollution if traffic reduced by 50%. It can also answer questions like can we open new industrial plant near city and what will be its impact on air quality near city or in an industry.
Air quality monitoring Procedure
Before starting air monitoring on site there is some background information required of the sources/emissions, health and demographic information, meteorological data, topographical information and previous air quality monitoring information. It helps to decide whether to increase or decrease monitoring locations based on previous readings.
Air quality testing and monitoring is done in areas where pollution problem exists and it is expected e.g. Industrial area, traffic intersection.
It is good to conduct air monitoring program in order to get annual average sampling as pollutants behave in each season differently. It recommended that in a year 104 monitoring of 24 hrs. i.e. twice a week.
Also instruments used in air quality monitoring must be well maintained and calibrated. Also laboratory should be nearby from the air quality monitoring site to avoid loss due to incorrect handling in transportation.
Air Quality monitoring Parameters
As per notification by pollution control board Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxide NO2, Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) & Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM / PM10) are important pollutants to monitor.
Also Monitoring of meteorological parameters like wind direction, speed, humidity and temperature should be integrated part of air quality monitoring.
Types of Air Monitoring
It can be divided into three parts
- Ambient air quality monitoring
- Indoor air quality monitoring
- Stack emission monitoring
There is also Industrial air quality testing available which includes ambient and indoor air quality monitoring for Industrial premises.
Industrial Air quality Testing
Industrial air quality testing can be conducted in company premises to ensue workers are not exposed to harmful gases in the workplace including chemical, physical and biological hazards. This hazards can affects health of employees and may prone to lost man-hours and additional cost. We can reduce potential exposure risks by identifying and recognizing gases and their characteristic.
Under industrial Air quality testing we can:
- Measurement of exposure
- Name and amount of presence in the atmosphere
- Health hazards
- Solution to minimize exposure
- Determine effectiveness of implemented controls
