PM10 (10 micrometre particulate matter) annual mean level is 26.3 µg/m3, which is below the quality limit set to 40 µg/m3.
PM2.5 (2.5 micrometre particulate matter) annual mean level is 15.4 µg/m3, which is below the quality limit set to 25 µg/m3.
PM10d (days exceeding daily PM10 mean limit of 50 µg/m3) is approximately 16 days pear year, which is below the quality limit set to 35 days per year.
PM2.5 and PM10 are atmospheric particulate matter with a diameter smaller than respectively 10, 2.5 microns. They are also called floating dust. Long-term exposure to increased levels of PM2.5 and PM10 may trigger or worsen chronic diseases such as asthma, heart attack, bronchitis and other respiratory problems.
