PlanetWatch, a self-described “French startup which is leveraging the Algorand blockchain to build a global air quality ledger,” has revealed it has activated 100 sensors in Milan and Taranto, according to a press release from the group.

The release describes PlanetWatch, which:

“PlanetWatch builds its global air quality monitoring network by combining city specific partnership networks and the creation of a global community of individual air sensor owners.”

Speaking on the matter is C. Parrinello, the CEO at PlanetWatch:

“The activation of dense sensor networks in Taranto and Milan is a major milestone for PlanetWatch. We are delivering cost-effective air quality monitoring solutions for cities worldwide. By leveraging citizen communities and associations, together with corporate partners and advanced technologies, we believe we can raise the standards of environmental monitoring and help protect public health. We are very grateful to the Algorand Foundation, Wiseair srl and the Taranto citizen association for their support towards our endeavours.”

Also sharing some thoughts is C.A. Gaetaniello, the COO of Wiseair, who said:

“Wiseair’s mission is to involve urban communities in air quality monitoring to promote a clean air future. With the support of the Wiseair community, we distributed more than 100 air quality sensors all over the city. Thanks to our strong partnership with PlanetWatch the data collected will be validated and made accessible to all. Citizen science and technology are combined here to build a new model to fight against air pollution.”
