Sofia. Picture: Министерство на околната среда и водите
Particulate matter levels exceeding up to two times the set limits were registered in the Boyana neighbourhood, Environment Minister Neno Dimov said while presenting the results of a comparative measurement of air quality in four Sofia districts between November 13 and 20, FOCUS News Agency
reported. Two of the districts have home heating from TPP, Boyana has heating based on solid fuel, while the fourth district has intense car traffic. Only in Boyana, particulate matter surpassed the limits in the evening of November 17. This once again proves that domestic heating with solid fuel is the main pollutant, the minister stressed.
The results from measurements in Sofia improved in the last two years, while the worst particulate matter levels in air were registered in the cities of Vidin, Montana and Gorna Oryahovitsa.
