Kyrgyzstan has only one device for air pollution measurement

«There is only one device for measuring the level of air pollution in Kyrgyzstan,» MP Dastan Bekeshev said at a session of the Parliament today.

According to him, the equipment is located near Bishkek Free Economic Zone. The parliament member reminded that in the world there is a practice to inform about the air pollution along with the weather forecast.

«It seems to me that the State Agency for Environmental Protection has money. Such equipment costs about $ 100,000. We need to acquire the right equipment and not wait for grants,» the deputy said.

Recall, the deputy made a request for the state of atmosphere air. He was told that, according to Kyrgyzgidromet, in recent months, the level of air pollution in Bishkek exceeded the maximum permissible concentration of harmful substances 2-3 times.
