How high are nitrogen dioxide immissions in Germany? Are we making progress with the much-invoked transport, energy, and heat turnaround, the urgent reduction of fossil combustion processes and the elimination of climate-damaging emissions? And – if so – which kind of relief for people, nature and the environment will be the result and at what pace, in which regions? These questions are increasingly occupying politicians, administrators, researchers and citizens. Now Hawa Dawa presents a new approach that leverages multiple advantages of new technologies to enable a higher spatial and temporal resolution of air pollution data. The immission register thus has the potential to form the business intelligence basis for a data-based transport turnaround and climate policy. Read more
“State environmental agency finds serious quality deficiencies at measuring station” – so read at the end of last year (rbb24). What at first reads like a damning verdict for technologically new measuring methods raises various questions when considered more comprehensively: What is the standard for the quality of an air measuring device? What quality standards must be maintained if public money is spent on them?
IoT measurement method meets legal requirements to prove compliance with air pollutant limits. Hawa Dawa has been the first provider in Europe to be certified by an independent state-approved body for the legally prescribed measurement accuracy of its IoT sensor measuring networks. TÜV Süd certifies: Hawa Dawa achieves the quality objectives of the 39. BlmSchV (the national implementation of the EU directive 2008/50/EG ).
The winterly weather conditions made the difference in handling and convenience particularly obvious. While tube collectors require a lot of manual handling – including collecting them one-by-one – the Hawa Dawa solution delivers the air quality information conveniently to your desk.
