The project aims to evaluate current situation regarding air quality in partners’ areas, install monitoring stations and create public health indexes for assessing air quality impact on human health and natural environment. TRAP will extend the already established network of air quality to both countries and cross-border area.
Information on real-time air pollution levels is now more necessary than ever before. At present, air pollution is one of the most significant factors posing threat to the health of individuals worldwide. The main sources of air pollution at both countries are mainly caused by industrial activities, transportation and heating. Air quality problems from industrial sources mainly concern areas with thermo-electrical power stations and industrial units located close to residential areas. Natural sources (e.g. transport of dust from deserts) and conditions (e.g. local topography and climatic conditions) also worsen urban air quality. Local meteorological conditions and topography have a major impact on air quality and contribute to the generation of air pollution episodes. Air quality is then strongly influenced by pollutants trapped due to thermal inversions caused from sea/land breezes and thermal internal boundary layers. Strategic objective of TRAP project is the creation of an ICT application integrating air quality monitoring with health impact indexes in CB area.
