Mining, smelting, and other industrial activities have a critical impact on air quality. They release harmful pollutants such as fine particulate matter and greenhouse gases that negatively affect human health and increase air pollution.

Implementing air quality monitoring solutions at industrial sites enables real-time measurement of pollution levels and can be a gamechanger to protect industry workers and surrounding communities.

  • Measure air pollution levels resulting from industrial activities in real-time
  • Make data-driven decisions to mitigate air pollution impact on local population
  • Compare continuous measurements against regulatory guidelines to confirm compliance

The impact of mining & industrial activities on air quality

Mining and industrial operations significantly contribute to air pollution through greenhouse gas emissions, fine particulate matter, organic compounds, and chemicals. These pollutants have detrimental effects on climate change, human health, and the environment, highlighting the urgent need for comprehensive air quality monitoring and mitigation measures.

Here are common pollutants generated from industrial activities:

Particulate Matter

Fine particulate matter emissions from mining and industrial activities have significant negative effects on health, causing respiratory damage and premature death.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Mining and industrial operations contribute to air pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions that affect climate change.

Organic Compounds and Chemicals

Industrial processes release organic compounds, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and other chemicals, contributing to air pollution and atmospheric warming.

Other Pollutants

Mining and industrial operations release pollutants such as toxic metals, particulates, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, methane, carbon monoxide, and benzene, which can impact air quality, ozone formation, and the greenhouse effect.

surface mine in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is operated by RWE and used for mining lignite. The mine currently has a size of 48 km2 (19 sq mi) and got its name from the village of Garzweiler which previously existed at this location. The community was moved to a section of Jüchen with the same name.
