A report from WHO (World Health Organisation) states that air pollution is responsible for 7 million deaths around the world every year.
Pollution has become the greatest environmental health risk contributing to one of every eight deaths. Outdoor pollution contributes to 3,7 million deaths (80 % being related to strokes and heart diseases).
The same study was last conducted back in 2008 with a result of 3 million deaths around the world every year, so the growth of air pollution related deaths has been almost 60 % within eight years.
A new WHO air quality model confirms that 92% of the world’s population live in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits.
In Finland during spingtime especially it is wise to measure street dust levels. PM2.5 measurements include pollutants such as sulfate, nitrates and black carbon, which penetrate deep into the lungs and in the cardiovascular system, posing the greatest risks to human health. According to WHO the PM2.5 limit should be 10 µg/m3.
Currently we are looking for pilot clients who are interested to measure street dust or other pollutants such as O3, SO2, NO2 or CO.
As our pilot partner you will be able to bring your measurement requirements into actions with the lowest possible cost (only covering our direct fixed costs for the sensors). After the pilot you will also receive the service at discounted prices. But being a pilot partner does not require continuing to using the service after pilot period.
You may indicate your interest to start measuring street dust (or other pollutants) in your area as our pilot partner by sharing your contact details to us and we will get in contact with you. Please contact for further details.
