The first of three air quality sensors has been deployed in the nation’s capital, according to a recent report by the City of Manila’s Public Information Office.

The air quality sensor was installed by the Manila City government’s air quality management technical working group led by the Department of Public Services.

“This is part of the ‘Air Blue Skies Program’, a partnership program between Clean Air Asia, 3M Philippines, and the Manila City government,” the city government’s statement read.

“It aims to deliver air quality solutions through the development of a science-based Clean Air Action Plan,” it said.

The DPS was assisted by the Department of Engineering and Public Works and the Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office during the installation of the equipment.

The agencies were joined by representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources- Environmental Management Bureau, National Capital Region, Clean Air Asia, and 3M Philippines.

The gadget was installed by the city government after ash from Taal Volcano’s initial eruption on Jan. 12 this year fell on the city.
