The National Environment Agency of the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture has installed a new air monitoring station in Rustavi today.
The station measures volumes of carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx, NO, NO2) sulfur dioxide (SO2), ozone (O3) and different dust compositions in the atmospheric air.
The collected data will be updated on a new portal recently launched by the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture http://air.gov.ge.
Nine automatic stations will operate in Georgia from now on.
Air quality standards improvement is one of the commitments taken on by Georgia in the EU-Georgia Association Agreement signed in June 2014.
