Air Quality Platform

IEMA has presented the Air Quality Platform to promote transparency of this information

The Institute of Energy and Environment (IEMA, the acronym in Portuguese) has presented the Air Quality Platform since 2015 to promote transparency of this information, which also helps conceive and improve public policies, with data and analyzes to monitor air quality in Brazil. This data is obtained and organized based on open sources, Annual Air Quality Reports for each Brazilian State, and, also, through the verification of the information directly with the environmental public agencies.

In the Platform the air quality data can be accessed according to the Air Quality Index (AQI) or compared to the air quality standards adopted in Brazil and guidelines established by the World Health Organization (WHO). Through the Air Quality Platform, it is possible to verify the air quality in the following interactive panels or in the databases available for download.
