Modern aerosol measurement technology from GRIMM AEROSOL

Its measurements focused originally on sulfur dioxide only, but over time, the measurement of other pollutants was added. GRIMM AEROSOL, a member of the DURAG GROUP since 2015, is now the official supplier and partner of the Berlin Air Quality Monitoring Network and has equipped its 17 fixed measuring stations and one special measuring point with state-of-the-art EDM 180 aerosol spectrometers.

In addition to measurement of components such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, ozone, benzene and carbon monoxide, particulate matter pollution in suburbs, rural areas and hotspots can now also be measured and analyzed.
