Are you interested in the quality of the air you breathe? Find out on the map below.
Due to a large air pollution in several part of the world mission of BREATH is to at least partially mitigate the consequences in the most critical areas, while it is necessary, at the same time, to ask ourselves about the causes and fight for their elimination. How severe and where on the world is air pollution today you can see on link above.
The health effects caused by air pollution may include difficulty in breathing, wheezing, coughing, asthma and worsening of existing respiratory and cardiac conditions, leading to lung and cardiovascular diseases, cancer, impact of central nervous system, low-birth weight infants, premature deaths. Main pollutants are:
PM₁₀ - particulate matter in diameter of 10 micrometers or less
PM₂‚₅ - particulate matter in diameter of 2.5 micrometers or less
O₃ - ozone
NO₂ - nitrogen dioxide
SO₂ - sulfur dioxide
CO - carbon monoxide
BREATH 's goal is to bring you as much clean air as possible. Air is harvested in several location in the region without direct or indirect sources of pollutants, taking into account all relevant circumstances (e.g. temperature, pressure, humidity, wind) for achieving the highest quality, also, during further process, by removing the largest possible number of harmful substances in the air that could harm your health.
