Air Quality at Dubin Airport

There is an Air Quality Monitoring programme in place at Dublin Airport and in surrounding areas in order to measure the concentrations of different pollutants in the air. These measurements are taken at 10 different locations outside the airport boundary using diffusion tube sampling. The concentrations of these pollutants (such as nitrogen dioxide or NO2) at all locations are well below the limit values mandated by EU regulations. The recorded data is considered typical of that which would be expected to be measured in urban and inter urban areas. More information on these results can be found here.

NO2 Concentrations at Dublin Airport 2017

The graph below presents the annual mean NO2 concentration for each of the 10 locations, based on the monthly data passive tube sampling. The Ambient Air Quality Standards Regulations mandate an annual mean limit value of 40μg/m³ for NO2. As can be seen from the 2017 graph below, the annual mean values were below the limit value at all monitoring locations.

Benzine (C6H6) concentration at Dublin Airport 2017

The average Benzine (C6H6) concentration, based on monthly passive tube sampling in 2017, is presented in the graph below. Regulations mandate an annual mean limit value of 5µg/mfor Benzine. The annual mean figures are well below the limit value of 5µg/mand less than 1µg/mat all monitoring locations.
