Bee’ah has launched a new initiative aimed at monitoring the levels of pollutants in the atmosphere. 

As part of the initiative, Bee’ah will set up a number of Ambient Air Quality Monitoring (AAQM) stations in strategic locations across the emirate. An additional unit will be mobile.

Monitoring spots will include residential and industrial areas, specific traffic spots, as well as the American University of Sharjah. Data collated will be shared in real-time with the public.

It is hoped that the data will give both researchers and policy makers the information needed to devise protocols and enact controls in tackling high-levels of atmospheric pollutants.

In order to achieve success on the project, the Sharjah environmental and waste management firm will collaborate with a number of partners based across the emirate. These include the American University of Sharjah, Hamriya Free Zone Authority and Sharjah City Municipality, to name a few.

Commenting on the initiative, Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO at Bee’ah shared: “This development is of vital significance as we look to secure a sustainable future for Sharjah. Our continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Network will utilise state-of-the-art reference methods to keep track of a vast range of data, from the composition of the air we breathe to wide-ranging meteorological parameters.”

 Bee’ah AAQM network will monitor a number of key parameters on a 24-hour basis. This includes observing the levels of oxides of sulfur and nitrogen, ozone, as well carbon monoxide. The network will also observe particular meteorological parameters, such as temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and wind speed.
