Casella.jpgAhead of the UK’s Clean Air Day on 21st June 2018, Casella announced a tender win for an online monitoring system for city roadside dust, located in Shanghai, China.

In 2017 the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau announced that 2016 had experienced the cleanest air in almost six years, with the level of dust (micrograms per cubic metre) showing a 15 % decrease from those in 2015. Keen for this to continue and to tackle the continued issue of outdoor dust air quality measurement, Casella provided a roadside dust monitoring system adapting the MicroDust Pro dust detection monitor - a real-time hand held data logging instrument for detection of airborne dusts, fumes and aerosols, and the adapted Apex2 Plus personal dust sampling pumps, used to monitor airborne contaminants. This air pollution measurement instrument has multiple purposes: publishing dust information online to update the public and issuing cautionary statements if required. It captures important data in real time; vital for the city.
