1440 air samples were analyzed in the observatory

In the air of Kyiv during the week with September 4 to 9 an excess of the average daily maximum allowable concentrations of nitrogen dioxide by 3.8 times was found.

Compared to the previous week, the content of pollutants in the air has not changed significantly, says the weekly report on air pollution from the Borys Sreznevsky Central Geophysical Observatory.

According to the data of the observatory, the exceeding of the maximum permissible concentration (MPC) in terms of the average daily content of nitrogen dioxide was:

  • in 3.1-3.8 times – on Hetman Pavlo Polubotka, Kaunaska, Semena Sklyarenko streets, in the area of ​​Beresteysky prospect, Demiivska square;
  • 2.1-3.0 times – on Oleksandr Dovzhenka, Inzhener Borodin Streets, Lesya Ukrainka Boulevard, Bessarabska Square, Obolonsky Prospect, Hydropark ;
  • no excesses were observed at 37 Nauky Ave. (in the area of ​​the meteorological station).

Exceeding the MPC by average daily content of sulfur dioxide:

  • 1.1-1.7 times – on Demiivska and Bessarabska squares, Obolonski and Beresteyski avenues, Lesya Ukrainka boulevard, Akademik Strazheska, Oleksandr Dovzhenka, Hetman Pavlo Polubotka, Inzhener Borodin, Kaunaska and Semyon Sklyarenko streets ;
  • no excesses were observed at 37 Nauky Ave. (in the area of ​​the meteorological station).

Exceeding the MPC by average daily formaldehyde content:

  • in 1.9-2.2 times – on the street Oleksandr Dovzhenka, Demiivska and Bessarabska squares, Obolonsky prospect, street Semena Sklyarenko;
  • in 1.1-1.7 times – on the street Hetman Pavlo Polubotka, Lesya Ukrainka boulevard, str. Kaunaska, Obolonsky prospect, in the Hydropark area.

Specialists of the observatory collected and analyzed 1,440 samples of atmospheric air from 16 stationary stations.

As EcoPolitic reported earlier, in Kyiv on the morning of Tuesday, September 12, in the Vygurivshchyna and Voskresenka neighborhoods on the Left Bank, the concentration of PM2.5 and PM10 dust in the air exceeded 100.
