Air quality monitoring

Public administrations have been making efforts to improve air quality through increasingly demanding legislation for decades. Air quality directives set environmental limit values for numerous contaminants. Historically, monitorisation of these parameters have been accomplished via hi-tech and costly tools, generally owned by public entities and investigation centres. However, as alternative technologies come into play at a lower cost, there is a shift of paradigm.

Installation of low-cost systems, typically in the form of networks, is leading the way to a high resolution monitorisation, in contrast to the current official networks, decentralising their management and promoting establishment of additional air quality data fluxes. The number of businesses that are currently interested in having knowledge of their air quality levels is growing in all contexts: offices, productive environments, industrial facilities, sport centres, schools, etc.

From this perspective, Talantia provides monitorisation equipment for multiple environmental contaminants (CO, O3, NO2, SO2, O2, H2S, PM10, PM2.5, PM1, PM0.7) and environmental parameters (atmospheric pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and noise).
