Japanese Gov’t gifts Georgia three automatic air pollution measuring stations

Thursday, July 14
The Japanese Government has gifted Georgia three automatic, air measuring stations worth $1,200,000 that will be installed in Tbilisi and continously measure air pollution.

The head of Georgia’s National Agency of Environment, Tamar Bagratia, said handing the equipment to Georgia was an act of "unprecedented support from the Japanese Government to the Agency”.

“With these stations we will have an affective, modern air monitoring system in Tbilisi,” Bagtaria said.

The stations will be installed at three different locations in Tbilisi and send information about the air pollution to the National Agency of Environment in an automatic, online regime.

The stations will be placed on Tsereteli and Kazgebi avenues in the central parts of Tbilisi and in the Varketili suburban area. (
