Actions taken as part of the HungAIRy LIFE integrated project
As part of the project, a new, continuously operating, automatic air quality measuring station will be installed in the territory of the Municipality of Békéscsaba. Until now there hasn’t been any continuous air pollution monitoring in Békéscsaba, therefore the installation and continuous operation of the air quality measuring station is justified. The installation of the station is important for mapping air quality data in the city, and for determining pollutants and their concentrations in the air.
The leader of the project is the Council of Békéscsaba Municipality. Partners involved in the action: Kaposvár County Municipality, Herman Otto Institution Non-profit Ltd., National Meteorological Service.
