The air measurement network in Mainz continues to operate

A comprehensive base of environmental data as a basis for eco-sensitive measures

Hawa Dawa is entering the third year of Mainz’s sensor-based air measurement network with Mainzer Netze GmbH. The monitoring network in Mainz will create one of the most comprehensive urban collections of environmental information.

By continuing to operate the measurement network and making the data available via open standards, infrastructure is being established in Mainz on which future measures – for example, environmentally sensitive traffic management – can easily be based at any time. In addition, new approaches can be developed based on this extensive data collection, which, for example, take a cross-sectoral look at the cause and effect fields of environment, weather, traffic and health. Last but not least, the digitally available data is an efficient basis for the creation and updating of clean air plans. Analyses can be drawn from the information quickly and narrowed down to any period or geographical area.

All environmentally relevant measures will benefit from the depth of the data and its quality: Hawa Dawa measurement networks provide an advanced tool to capture air quality digitally, spatially and temporally with high resolution. The present test report from TÜV Süd, which also includes a Mainz comparison station with the measuring station of the Rhineland-Palatinate State Office for the Environment on Parcusstrasse, proves the quality of the measuring method.

Martin Montag, Head of Sales Public Sector at Hawa Dawa, explains: “We congratulate Mainz on what is probably the best data basis in a national comparison. Better information is the basis for better decisions. Short-term measurements are only of limited use to justify sustainable measures because seasonal influences or special influences in one year can hardly be considered properly. In Mainz, we are taking on the role of a pioneer who has recognized this.”
