Compact air monitoring stations set up in Tehran

Mar 03 2009

A series of stations designed to monitor air quality in the Iranian capital city Tehran will be set up next month, it has been revealed.

Overall, five stations will work to gauge air quality in the city, which is Iran's largest, reports news provider Payvand.

The announcement was made by the Yousef Rashidi, managing director of Tehran Air Quality Control Company, who stated that the compact facilities will be opened in April.

He explained: "The existing stations need a large area and this is a problem which has barred their establishment in different parts of the city."

However, this issue has been resolved with the pending introduction of the smaller stations, he added, which can be "erected in most parts of the city".

This news comes following claims from environmental groups which claimed that Tehran's bird population is shrinking due to the city's poor air quality, the Guardian informed last month.
