Cabins to control air quality and environmental factors in the Port of Valencia
The Port of Valencia has just installed its third cabin to monitor air quality and other environmental factors at the Port of Segunto. The 3 booths can record up to 8 different gases and particles which allows for a precise analysis of air quality around the port. Using the latest technology, the cabin can measure in real time the concentration of sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NO2/NO/NOx), ozone (O3), carbon monoxide (CO) and PM10 and PM2.5 particles. A meteorological station has also been equipped in each of the three cabins and allows to collect information on wind speed and direction, rainfall, solar radiation, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. In addition, the port’s acoustic level can be assessed, thanks to sound level meters.
The two cabins which were already in the Port of Valencia are part of the GREEN C PORTS project, coordinated by the Valenciaport Foundation and co-financed by the European Union. The data collected is publicly available on the website of the Port Authority, as well as on the website on the Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development, Climate Emergency and Ecological Transition.
