Seureca conducts an air quality assessment in the Philippines

In partnership with Foundation Veolia and Médecins du Monde, OFIS, a subsidiary of Seureca, carried out situational analyses of environment and health in a shantytown near Manilla.

OFIS’ objective was to identify the principal sources of air pollution and to determine the initial actions to be taken for pollution reduction. Ambient air quality measurements were made at some ten key points in the area, as well as interior air quality measurements in 40 households. Exposure of the population was evaluated through spot measurements, as well as by a continuous measurement over several days with various sensors.
