Changzhou Launches Assessment over Mobilized Atmospheric Environment Monitoring SystemPost date: 2018-08-21

(August 21, 2018) In China’s Changzhou, an industrial hub with 4.7 mn citizens located in China’s eastern Jiangsu province, a flocks of drivers assembled at a local taxi control center, casting their eyes curiously at engineers installing a device on top of a taxi. To their surprise it is monitoring system to detect air pollution.  

Years of great endeavors have been paid well in the city, which has made a tremendous progress improving its air quality, but to meet its escalating demand for advanced management, the city needs finer technology supports to identify key polluters not only limited within its city boundary, as result of the increasing amount of pollutants being transmitted from neighboring regions. The mobilized monitoring system will provide better air and livelihood to its habitants, a monumental step-forward for Changzhou to adopt new technologies, and also a debut of China’s pilot assessment program subject to test of mobilized tools used to monitor air pollution.  

To support Changzhou launching the air quality monitoring assessment, the Blotch Clean Air Alliance, with its technological strength, has been working with the Changzhou Environmental Science Research Institute(ESRI) for two months. It has promoted the pilot programe by utilizing Bluetech accredited monitoring platform. The upgraded system will enable Changzhou to take finer regulatory means to make deeper pollution cuts.

The Alliance, in cooperation with the ESRI and the equipment provider has outlined tech norms, such as the Changzhou Taxi-carried Mobilized Monitoring Plan and Assessment Plan on Vehicle-mounted Monitoring Devices. The project participants have completed system designs and on-site installation. And the collected data has been put in comparison tests with the local stationary monitoring stations, paving way to commercial application for next step. The test run is moving forward smoothly and the pilot tech assessment programe is expected to last for a few months.
