A mobile automated station for analytical monitoring of air pollution was put into operation in Almetyevsk, and it will provide service on the South-Eastern territory of the Republic of Tatarstan.
At present, 2 stationary posts of automated air control operate in Almetyevsk allowing to control activity of the nearest companies as possible sources of air pollution. All data are controlled by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of the Republic of Tatarstan. A mobile station will allow to control air condition near any company located on the south-eastern territory. The station can also make measurements during movement, which is important when it comes to inspection of air pollution level on roads. The station measures concentrations of harmful impurities, namely ammonia and nitrogen oxides, carbon oxide, sulfur dioxide, sulphurated hydrogen, hydrocarbon, as well as determines meteorological indices.
