1529 air samples were analyzed in the observatory

In the air of Kyiv during the week with 11 to 16 in September, an excess of the average daily maximum allowable concentrations of nitrogen dioxide by 3.2 times was found.

Compared to the previous week, the content of nitrogen dioxide and suspended solids has decreased, says 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:

  • 3.0-3.2 times – on Hetman Pavlo Polubotka Street and in the area of ​​Beresteyskyi Prospect (September 11 and 12);
  • 2.0-2.9 times – on the streets of Akademik Strazheska, Oleksandr Dovzhenka, Inzhener Borodin, Lesya Ukrainka Boulevard, Bessarabska Square, St. Kaunaska, Obolonsky prospect, Demiivska square;
  • 1.3-1.6 times – in the Hydropark area;
  • 1.1-1.2 times – on Nauka Avenue (September 11-14) .

Exceeding the MPC by average daily content of sulfur dioxide:

  • 1.1-1.6 times – on Demiivska and Bessarabska squares, Obolonski and Beresteyski avenues, Lesya Ukrainka boulevard, Akademik Strazheska, Oleksandr Dovzhenka, Hetman Pavlo Polubotka, Inzhener Borodin, Kaunaska and Semen Sklyarenko streets, Hydropark ;
  • no excesses were observed at 37 Nauky Ave. (in the area of ​​the meteorological station).

Exceeding the MPC by average daily formaldehyde content:

  • in 1.8-2.4 times – on Demiivska Square, in the area of ​​Beresteyskyi and Obolonskyi avenues, str. Oleksandr Dovzhenka, Bessarabska Square, Hydropark;
  • in 1.0-1.7 times – on Akademika Strazheska street, Lesya Ukrainka boulevard, street Hetman Pavlo Polubotka, str. Kaunaska, Nauka avenue.

Specialists of the observatory selected and analyzed 1529 atmospheric air samples from 16 stationary posts.

As EcoPolitic reported earlier, in Kyiv, the Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the Buchansk City Council to increase the territory of the village of Kotsyubynske at the expense of a plot by 3,000 hectares in the Bilichan Forest, which is part of the Holosiivskyi National Nature Park.
