Bangkok Tries Again to Control PM2.5

Bangkok Thailand Smog Air Pollution PM2.5

Bangkok City Hall has drafted another plan to cope with the problem of particulate matter 2.5 microns and smaller (PM2.5) that is expected to escalate later this month.

Gov. Aswin Kwanmuang chaired a meeting of the PM2.5 committee, as the pollution normally happened from late October to February.

The meeting approved the latest plan, which is based on solutions implemented last year and also includes improved measures, such as increases in vehicle emission checkpoints, frequent emission checks and “no-truck” hours in some areas.

Participants in the meeting suggested city hall install anemometers and apply artificial intelligence to improve PM2.5 forecasts and solutions.
