Chronic air pollution, more dangerous than pollution peaks

The Almo Institute —which is responsible for the control of air quality in the Rhône-Alpes-Auvergne region (Lyon)— insists that chronic air pollution (that is, the permanent presence of fine dust and nitrogen oxides) has more consequences for people’s health that the occasional air pollution peak. In fact, even when the limits established by law are not exceeded, hazardous substances continue to find themselves permanently in the air. For this reason, the Almo Institute support local politics and businesses in the introduction of lasting environmental measures.
