Organizations from several sectors have been using our technology to get
ahold of hyperlocal air quality data and act through data-led
Read about some of the successful projects we have been developing.
Nursery network (France)
Indoor air quality monitoring in kindergartens
Due to their physiology and inability to communicate their discomfort,
and adapt their behavior, infants in nurseries are more vulnerable to
the harmful effects of poor air quality. Respiratory diseases, allergies,
and airborne viruses are more easily spread in environments where the
air quality is not suitable.
Moreover, a high concentration of
carbon dioxide has an adverse effect on the learning experience as it
reduces memory and impairs concentration. By proactively monitoring air
quality, nurseries will be able to improve
the air their children are breathing through informed decisions.
Outdoor air quality monitoring in Munich
Transport-related pollution is one of the leading air quality concerns in major cities.
quality can vary by as much as 800% between and within city streets -
busy roads often concentrate two to three times more pollutants. Hyperlocal and real-time data on street-level air pollution is crucial to safely navigating high-traffic cities.
using the information provided by PlanetWatch’s network, the startup
will add a layer of environmental intelligence to its mobile app that,
in turn, will help its users navigate Munich through the cleanest and
Miami-Dade x Port of Miami (US)
Outdoor air quality monitoring in Miami-Dade county
Port activities constitute a significant source of air pollution and health concerns for the citizens in the surrounding areas.
vessels with combustion engines, that run on heavy fuel oil, are highly
polluting. However, ports also contain a vast array of diesel-powered
machinery (e.g. tractors, lifters, and carriers), as well as large
amounts of bulk materials, that generate hazardous dust in windy
conditions (e.g. fertilizers and wood products).
related to prolonged exposure to pollutants produced by such activities
include respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, lung cancer and
premature death. These have a considerable impact on the well-being of
both port workers as well as residents from Miami-Dade county.
the Port of Miami also has construction plans for the upcoming years -
an activity that will further contribute to the air pollution in the
PlanetWatch’s air quality monitoring solutions will allow
Miami-Dade county to thoroughly analyze and act on the air pollution
impacts of port activities as well as assess the influence of
construction activities on the environment.
School network (Italy)
Indoor air quality monitoring in schools
Students spend hundreds of hours per year in classrooms. Assuring they
have all the conditions to make the best out of their learning
experience is crucial for their success. Yet, not enough schools look
after the air their students and staff breathe.
Poor air quality
has several effects on children, teenagers, and adults: it worsens
allergies, boosts the possibility of airborne virus transmission, and
increases the risks of severe asthma attacks and other respiratory
Moreover, a high concentration of carbon dioxide has
an adverse effect on the learning experience as it reduces memory,
impairs concentration, and lowers decision-making capabilities.
By monitoring air quality with PlanetWatch’s help, the Italian network of schools intends to protect their community’s health and ensure students have a safe learning environment.
Pays de Gex (France)
Indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring around and within three public buildings
Local authorities must set an example to individuals, companies, and
public structures. This is especially important when it comes to looking
after the health of the region’s community. In 2019 alone, clean air
could have saved the lives of at least 178.000 EU citizens.
partnership with PlanetWatch, local authorities are
proactively monitoring the air around and within the town hospital, the
government’s headquarters, and the startup incubator. By doing so, they
are gathering valuable and useful information to put in place data-led
Amalfi Coast (Italy)
Outdoor air quality monitoring in several towns along the coast
In the aftermath of the pandemic, respiratory diseases, and thus air quality, are an increasing concern among travelers.
pollution is a threat to one of the world’s most touristy destinations:
Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Although the coastline is filled with beautiful
beaches and scenic villages, it is close to the big metropolitan city of
Naples, which can ward off tourists looking to enjoy a healthy
By joining forces with PlanetWatch, local authorities
can leverage air quality as a competitive advantage to promote the
region, attract tourists, and act on air pollution hotspots.
