Air Pollution is a problem commonly occurring in the wake of large-scale industrialization. This problem is mostly seen in large cities where large or small scale industries are located and where vehicular traffic predominates. Air pollution is caused by introduction of one or more contaminants in atmosphere that are injurious to human, animal or plant life and even endanger them. The contaminants may be natural (Pollen grains from grass, weeds etc), particulates (dust, smoke, mist) and gases (SO2, NOx, CO etc). it is necessary to conduct ambient air and stack monitoring in order to know the possible contamination of air. There are few air quality standards that lay down permissible levels of pollutants permitted in the atmosphere in order that adverse effects produced thereof are kept to the minimum.

Ambient Air:

  1. Sulphur Dioxide(So2)
  2. Nitrogen Dioxide(No2)
  3. Particulate Matter(PM 10ug/m3)
  4. Particulate Matter(PM2.5ug/m3)
  5. Carbon Monoxide(CO mg/m3)
  6. Hydro carbons
  7. Lade

Stack:

  1. Sulphur Dioxide (Sox)
  2. Nitrogen Oxide (Nox)
  3. Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  4. Hydro carbons
