Presentation of results of air pollution measurements via drone

Nov. 12, 2019 | Bioeconomy Knowledge and Development Center

Regional Science and Technology Centre together with Świętokrzyskie Voivodship and Foundation for Education and Social Dialogue Pro Civis organized three bioeconomy-related events in Busko-Zdrój and Solec-Zdrój – spa municipalities in which the Polish local pilot case is being implemented. The first event, which took place on 21 October 2019 in Busko-Zdrój, gathered decision and policy makers from the two municipalities, the District of Busko-Zdrój, as well as representatives of science. The other two events were organized on 7 and 8 November 2019. Directed at more general population (inhabitants, spa clients, NGOs), the meetings focused more on daily-life examples on how air quality affects our lives, providing some concrete solutions to most-frequent challenges (e.g. which heating solutions are most ecological and effective). At all meetings participants had a chance to find out more about RDI2CluB project and the bioeconomy potential in the region. The participants were also encouraged to become active “users” of the project by active involvement in the local pilot on air quality and near-ground emission, as local communities and their perception of near-ground emission are crucial for building a five-helix based model of dealing with mitigation of air pollution. The presentations on sources and consequences of near-ground emission were strengthen by presentation of results of air pollution measurements via drone. Additionally, participants were encouraged to engage in the bioeconomy-related discussion via the virtual platform Biobord.eu and within the Centre for Knowledge and Bioeconomy Development, operating in the Regional Science and Technology Centre. To the meetings with inhabitants there are invited enterprises offering solutions mitigating near-ground pollution, as well as representatives of the Voivodeship Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Kielce and media representatives.
