Clean Air Kit

Posted by: Birchills C of E Community Academy on

Air pollution is one of the biggest killers in the UK, responsible for 40,000 early deaths every year – it contributes to heart and respiratory disease, including the development of asthma, and causes lung cancer.

Road traffic is the biggest problem for air pollution, with diesel vehicles the worst of all.

To help fight against deadly air pollution we have got our hands on a Clean Air Kit to investigate the air where we live.

The air monitoring tube measures Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), a harmful gas that inflames the lining of the lung and reduces immunity to lung infection.

Check back on our blog in a couple of weeks to find out the results.
