Air-quality sensors in Warsaw to improve – largest network of sensors in Europe

Warsaw is to receive Europe’s largest network of air-quality sensors, after a deal signed between the capital’s city hall and Kraków air-quality analysis company Airly. Airly is a Polish firm developing solutions for improving air quality.

Signed on the 30th of December 2021, the deal will see sensors located in each of Warsaw’s districts and 17 partnering municipalities with air quality being monitored in a total of 165 individual locations in real-time and 24 hours a day.

Air-quality sensors – limiting air pollution

Analysis of these areas will make it possible to take effective actions and initiate organisational changes aimed at limiting air pollution in the city, such as through the introduction of ‘low emission zones’ or better targeting of actions such as information about subsidies for the replacement of fireplaces.

The devices will monitor the saturation of the most dangerous particles, PM1, PM2.5, PM10 as well as gases nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O3) and the data will be presented to residents by a publicly accessible and free webpage as well as mobile app Warszawa 19115.

The devices will be located at points designated by the Warsaw University of Technology. They will be both public service buildings as well as lampposts near roads and parks. The deal also foresees the future possibility of expanding the network by a further 100 sensors.

Apart from providing reliable information to residents about air quality, the aim of the project is also to highlight the areas with higher saturations of pollutants and effectively find commercial solutions to fight climate change.
