Project description

This research will provide concentration levels of major air pollutants (O3, NO2, SO2, VOC, particulate matter) in Nigerian indoor environments, located in rural and urban areas. The contribution of sources (fuel for cooking, lighting, electricity (generators)) to the indoor air quality will be investigated. Authorities can use the data to make informed choices and plan strategies to improve air quality.
