For more than a month, Cumbre Vieja has been spewing fire, lava and smoke onto the holiday island. Rain of ash falls to the ground and earthquakes shake the area.
The natural disaster also releases toxic gases into the environment and pollutes the atmosphere. But this does not harm tourism, the natural event even attracts more people than usual to the island.
In order to provide the local authorities with meaningful measurement data on air quality, our measuring devices are now being installed at various measuring stations. Via our data platform, the responsible authorities will then have a quick overview of the relevant values and can react quickly if concentrations are too high.
