Versailles champions innovative air quality monitoring to improve citizens’ public health
In the Cultivating City of Versailles, several successful installations, referred to cleverly as ‘eLos’, have now been launched which study outdoor air quality. The installations were created by an organisation called eLichens, a company which provides excellent services in the monitoring of air quality. The company is now using these installations for the benefit of health and the environment around Versailles, a city which has shown its commitment and sensitivity to environmental issues.
By installing these ‘eLos’ mainly around green spaces, the city of Versailles wishes to study the air that its citizens breathe in spaces most likely to welcome the public, in particular children, who are an age group more often subject to respiratory illnesses. The installations are also able to monitor pollution linked to road traffic around the city.
This air quality data allows cities to establish a roadmap, and the map visualisation helps to accurately uncover the areas most impacted by pollution.
This kind of data insight is of great interest and relevance to cities wishing to set up projects targeting these critical areas. The analysis of the data allows, in particular, the implementation of future actions by the locality with the aim of improving air quality, and thus protecting the health of all citizens.
