DANIEL CARO, director of the Urban Cloud Company, has announced that visitors and residents in Malaga can breathe good quality air in 95 per cent of city.
In a recent study conducted by Malaga council and Urban Cloud, a team of 40 voluntary cyclists collected air samples across the capital. The report, presented by environmental councillor Raul Jimenez, was carried out across 2,355 areas in the province. Of these, more than half (1,405) tested for low pollution, 820 tested for moderate pollution, and only 130 were flagged as danger zones.
Despite being a city with significant motor traffic, the study shows that the presence of carbon dioxide (co2) remains well below the levels in Madrid, Sevilla and Barcelona.
The 130 zones showing evidence of high levels of pollution will be subject to a second round of testing, according to Jimenez. The next stage will use more sensitive equipment to carry out an in-depth analysis of the pollutants and, if necessary, devise counteractive solutions.
