The southwest Iranian city of Ahvaz walked away with the unfortunate distinction of having the highest measured level of airborne particles smaller than 10 micrometers. WHO released the list to highlight the need to reduce outdoor air pollution, which is estimated to cause 1.34 million premature deaths each year. The global body said investments to lower pollution levels quickly pay off due to lower disease rates and, therefore, lower healthcare costs. The list, which relies on country-reported data over the past several years, measures the levels of airborne particles smaller than 10 micrometers – so-called PM10s – for almost 1,100 cities. WHO recommends an upper limit of 20 micrograms fo

MOI Road Warriors in Shanghai

And this is why.... Governor John Kitzhaber highlighted Portland State University 's growing partnership with a leading Chinese environmental research institution today when he visited the Shanghai Academy of Environmental Sciences (SAES).

The equipment will enable PSU, SAES and Oregon's Department of Environme

Because We Monitor Trains, Buses and Autos In spite of all the talk about trains, this was an interesting article on BRT which makes more sense than building rail systems...and specially heavy rail in our cities.  Roadside monitoring is a good part of our business.  Our most famous roadside monitor is across the street from Mme. Tussaud's Museum in London in collaboration with Enviro Technology.

Air Quality Index and What It Means

Air Quality Index (AQI) Values) Levels of Health Concern Colors When the AQI is in this range: ...air quality conditions are: symbolized by this color: 0-50 Good Green 51-100 Moderate Yellow 101-150 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups Orange 151 to 200 Unhealthy Red 201 to 300 Very Unhealthy Purple 301 to 500 Hazardous Maroon Each category corresponds to a different level of health concern. The six levels of health concern and what they mean are: "Good" AQI is 0 - 50. Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk. "Moderate" AQI is 51 - 100. Ai
