Air Quality Monitoring

Air pollution is a serious issue in Detroit, Michigan. Cases of respiratory infections have lived with part of the population since end of civil War. Sulphurdioxide has been the major pollutant arising from two power plants fired by coal. As the coal burn, ensuing chemical reactions yields sulphurdioxide which has a smell of rotten egg and highly poisonous to the respiratory system. DTE Energy owns the two power plants that are in River Rouge has been a curse to the surrounding residents in Detroit. The worrying statistics on Asthma victims has always attracted the state and federal environmental agencies. It is imperative that a comprehensive model of air quality monitoring program for this pollutant is developed (Brebbia, et al.2011).

Screening is of air constitute the initial phase of determining amount of sulphurdioxide released on air. The United States Environmental protection agency (EPA) needs to obtain an effective measurement procedure on the intensity of SO2 emitted. In that respect, I would propose molecular UV fluorescence analyzers (Klockenkämper  & Bohlen, 2015). In this process, a sample of air can be collected by large balloons. The sample obtained is exposed to UV light in a controlled experiment room with system comprising an electrochemical sensor and a flame photometric.  In this AS 3580.4.1 system, the PMT detector and the analyser will work together to determine SO2 on air (Klockenkämper  & Bohlen, 2015). During this process, kicker is used to clear any hydrocarbon elements that will likely interfere with the final result. A combined screening process and the monitoring instrument discussed will be helpful in establishment of the most appropriate remedial measure against air pollution level in Detroit.
