Real-Time Air Monitoring in Persian Gulf Economic Zone

The air quality of Persian Gulf Special Economic Zone will now be monitored using a newly installed real-time, 24-hour air quality monitoring system, according to the zone’s head of Safety Management, Hygiene and Environment Department, Houshang Sivandipour.
Monitoring and control of pollutant produced by industrial units in the region started in 2012. The monitoring process uses specific environmental standards, he said.
The system is installed in an air quality monitoring station and measures the concentration of particulates and gases, such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide in the air.
Other meteorological parameters are also monitored in the station, including the temperature, air pressure, humidity, precipitation and wind direction and speed.
The new system, which costs 45 billion rials ($1.36 million), receives data from industrial units in real time, eliminating the need for data collection by experts.
