Compared to the previous week, the content of formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide has increased, according to the weekly report on air pollution from the Borys Sreznevsky Central Geophysical Observatory.

According to the observatory, the exceedance of the maximum permissible concentration (MPC) for the average daily content of nitrogen dioxide was:

  • by 1.8-2.1 times – on Demiivska, Bessarabska and Halytska squares, Beresteyski and Obolonski avenues, Lesya Ukrainka boulevard, Akademik Strazheska, Hetman Pavlo Polubotka, Inzhener Borodin, Kaunaska and Semyon Sklyarenko streets ;

  • 1.1 times – on Semena Sklyarenko Street (October 24).

Specialists of the observatory selected and analyzed 1496 atmospheric air samples from 16 stationary posts.

As EcoPolitic reported earlier, in Kyiv, ADM LLC, which residents suspect of polluting the air in the Syrets, Kurenivka, and Zamkovyshte microdistricts, agreed to install an emissions monitoring sensor on the pipe.
