Libelium unites benefits of Smart Cities IoT solutions for air quality monitoring

By 2050, outdoor air pollution is projected to become the top cause of environmentally related deaths worldwide.

More than 500,000 people dead prematurely every year due to poor air quality in Europe. The biggest problem coming from Particulate Matter, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O3). The Common Air Quality Index (CAQI) is an air quality index used in Europe since 2006. The European Environment Agency started encouraging its use on websites and for other ways of informing the public about air quality.

The Smart Cities market is rapidly developing. Smart Cities look for sustainable growth, diminishing the impact of economic and demographic changes and taking advantage of IT and communication technologies.
