Air pollution monitors to be installed in Yangon

Air pollution monitoring equipment costing K600 million (about US$608,000) will be installed throughout Yangon next month, the municipal administration said on February 19.

“The equipment will be installed at fifteen locations,” said U Aung Myint Maw, the deputy head of the Yangon City Development Committee’s Environmental Protection Department.

The YCDC is coordinating with the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), to install the instruments, worth K40 million each, he said.

The YCDC was still deciding where to install the equipment, but five would be at busy intersections and four will be located in industrial zones, U Aung Myint Maw said.

The other instruments would be mobile devices that could be moved to different locations in the city.

U Aung Myint Maw said the devices would contain solar powered computers that measure air quality.
