Yes! Thanks to the high amount of measurement locations, CurieuzenAir is the most finely-meshed air quality survey ever conducted in Brussels. This allows us to map air quality in great detail. Moreover, CurieuzenAir measures the concentration of NO2 in Brussels. Other projects, such as Luchtpijp or InfluencAir, took a closer look at the amount of particular matter. Both particulate matter and NO2 are harmful to our health. Yet there are some important differences. For example, particulate matter mainly originates from the heating of buildings. NO2, on the other hand, is an important indicator of air pollution caused by traffic.
