airACT: an app to check the air we breathe
CAPTOR project launches airACT, a new application that informs about air pollutants in real time and helps to act against them.
Air pollution cannot be seen but it is breathed. It is the main public health problem in our cities. The new airACT app aims to bring the problem of air pollution closer to the population in Spain and Austria. It does so by informing in an understandable way about the daily and hourly values of the main air pollutants. Unlike other applications, the ranges have been established in four different colors based on the impact on health (according to WHO recommendations) and the legal compliance with the European regulations. The application is completely free, and can be accessed through airACT.org or downloaded from Google Play on Android devices.
