As part of its Innovation and Quality of Life projects, the Ministry of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development is conducting an air pollution control test in the car park of the Carrefour shopping centre.

Air quality measuring devices have been installed by the specialist company Kali'air for the period of 25 March to 7 April 2019, at the vehicle exit and in the middle of the car park on Level -1.

These devices enable air quality to be assessed at strategic points in the car park.

Panels developed by the Italian company Anemotech, with an innovative coating, 'theBreath,' which reduces pollution, have been placed near the measuring devices.

The aim of the test is to assess air quality prior to the installation of the pollution control panels and a few days later. The differences between the two periods will be analysed, as will the fabric of the panels after use, to evaluate the pollution captured. The expected result is improved air quality, thanks to the use of these pollution-reducing panels.
