Air Pollution Monitoring

There are several types of Air pollution and the hot topics of pollution which are generally discussed are smog, acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and the "Ozone hole". As all these can have serious effects on the health of human beings and animals alike, it is of paramount importance to see to it the relevant environmental parameters are regularly checked or monitored.

Spectro has not only taken up the monitoring of ambient air in the urban conditions found in cities, but has also undertaken the challenges of conducting these assignments in the adverse and hostile conditions found in the Himalayan ranges and also in the extreme rural areas of different parts of the country.

Types and significance of Ambient Air Pollutants

  • Particulates (SPM & RPM)
  • Metals lead, mercury, arsenic etc
  • Sulphur dioxide, Nitrogen oxides, Carbon Monoxide, Ammonia, and Ozone
  • Methane & Benzene
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
  • 1,3-Butadiene from vehicle exhausts.

Carbon monoxide is the product of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels.

Nitrogen dioxide is formed whenever fossil fuels are burnt in air. However, the main source of it is vehicular exhausts.

Ozone in the upper atmosphere is essential to protect the earth from the harmful ultra-violet light. However at even trace levels (more than 10 ppm) near the ground this gas can irritate the airways of the lungs. It is formed as a secondary pollutant i.e. by the reaction of other pollutants with each other.

Sulphur dioxide is mainly produced during the burning of coal and oil.

Particulate matters, PM10 and PM2.5 are small airborne particles that can penetrate deep into the lungs. Their sources include sea salt, wind blown soil, combustion processes and droplet formation in the atmosphere.

Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air poses many challenges to the health of the people not only in urban, industrial and rural areas, but also in office environment too. Indoor air pollutants slowly accumulate and lead to significant health hazards and cause damage to the environment at par with outdoor air pollutants.

Spectro conducts indoor air monitoring and analysis for its clients in embassies, call-centres, hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries. We are equipped with the latest instruments like the latest indoor air samplers and also the laser based air particle counter.

Water Pollution

Spectro provides full range of sampling and testing services for Potable, Municipal Sewage, Industrial Wastewater, Surface and Ground water. The testing activities are carried out as per IS, APHA, BIS and WHO specifications.

Soil Pollution

The quality of soil cannot be ignored as it will then endanger public health and the living environment. Therefore it is necessary to conduct proper soil tests, and also analyze the correlation between various factors which affect it or can get affected by it.

Spectro offers a complete range of testing solutions for Agricultural and Non-Agricultural Land use.

Besides all these testing parameters, Spectro also provides testing for Stack Monitoring and Noise Pollution.
