The deputy Minister of Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture of Georgia Nino Tandilashvili along with Agency specialists get acquainted with mobile auto-station monitoring of atmospheric air quality on the Rose Square.

With the mobile station, it is possible to determine the quality of air in different parts of the capital and in regions of Georgia. The auto station was located on the Rose Square where the air quality was monitored 24 hours.

Concentrations of eight pollutants of the atmospheric air on the ground are determined by the mobile automation station (PM10, PM2.5, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and dioxide, NOX and ozone). Assessment of the results obtained in accordance with Georgia and EU standards will be implemented. A new mobile station may determine the quality of air pollution in all regions of Georgia and to identify the causes of pollution.

In order to improve atmospheric air quality monitoring, new modern stationary automobile stations are installed in various regions of Georgia. The stations have been installed in Tbilisi, Kutaisi and Batumi and will be installed in the city of Rustavi this year. Air Quality Monitoring Mobile Station will cover regions from next week.
