Cambodia releases measures to curb, reduce air pollution

Cambodia’s Ministry of Environment on Friday released measures to prevent and reduce air pollution in the kingdom after it observed that air quality had declined.

The ministry said in a statement that it has equipped air quality monitoring devices across the country to detect PM10 and PM2.5 (air particles) and found that air quality is on the decline, that could affect human health.

PM10 and PM2.5 are produced by factories, diesel-driven vehicles, forest fire, and rubbish and solid waste burning at construction sites, public areas and rubbish dumps, the statement said, adding that PM10 and PM2.5 have recently increased higher than a standard limit.
