Air monitor coming up near Tianjin
( China Daily )

BEIJING - An environment monitoring station to count the densities of PM2.5 (tiny airborne pollutants smaller than 2.5 microns) and ozone in the city and Tianjin in real time will be set up in Wuqing district of Tianjin, Beijing News reported.

Wuqing district is between Beijing and Tianjin, 70 kilometers away from Beijing and 25 km from Tianjin city.

Tianjin meteorological bureau said the district was located on the air contamination's transmission path between Beijing and Tianjin.

The monitoring station will also analyze the air contamination's transmission between Beijing and Tianjin and forecast fog, haze and other air pollutions in the two cities.

The Ministry of Environmental Protection started gauging public opinion on revised air quality standards on Nov 16.

The new standards will, for the first time, include readings of concentrations less than PM2.5, the ministry said in a website statement.

Along with the new standards, the country's existing Air Pollution Index will also be upgraded into the Air Quality Index. This will follow international practices to include ozone and carbon monoxide pollution levels as well as PM2.5.
