The 11th air quality monitoring station of Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi was inaugurated at the French Embassy on July 16, state media reported. The automated station constantly updates data on wind speeds and directions, rainfall, dust, ozone, and air quality. Its equipment is connected to the city’s monitoring system, and all indices are publicized on the municipal People’s Committee’s portal. At the same time, the station allows detailed study into pollution and sources of pollution. Earlier, the France-based EVNEA, a renowned manufacturer in the field of environment instrumentation, installed ten air quality monitoring stations in the city under the AFD/Airparif technical support project. Hanoi currently has 16 environmental monitoring stations, including 11 automated air quality monitoring stations and five water monitoring stations. It targets to have 95 air quality stations by 2020. (BNews, Tin Tuc, en.Vietnam Plus, VnExpress, baotainguyenmoitruong, InfoNet, Dang Cong San, Zing, hanoimoi, Lao Dong)
