TCI Sanmar installs cutting-edge air ambient monitoring station in Egypt

India’s TCI Sanmar Chemicals Company announced on Monday the installation of a cutting-edge air ambient monitoring station in the southern Port Said Governorate, Egypt, to improve air quality in the surrounding residential areas.

The station was dedicated and delivered to the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) and tested earlier this month, in an effort to ensure the cleanliness and purity of the environment surrounding residential areas.

The station was installed to support the Sustainable Development Strategy 2030, while promoting local development, sustainability, and community participation, Yasmine Fouad, Minister of Environment, explained.

The company invested nearly $300,000 in the station which was supplied by Thermo Fisher Scientific, a world leader in serving science and installed at Al-Raswa Primary School.

The installation and operation of the station followed the guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO) for measuring ambient air pollutants, aligning with international standards and advancements.

The station was installed following the technical requirements and specifications provided by the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA), as well as adhering to the guidelines set forth by the agency.

It is worth mentioning that the EEAA will take full responsibility for the maintenance, operation, and calibration of the station starting from the date of delivery with an aim to guarantee uninterrupted and precise data availability.
