Borivali air quality most dusty, Marine Drive least: Study - air cleaner
Hosted by the city professor, it also said that the ficus ben plant captures more dust, which, if planted on the other side of the city, will make air cleaning the first
The Mumbai dust map drawn by three city professors has identified the Western Highway (WEH)
In burriff, the dust is the most.
The most polluted areas and sea traffic.
The three also found that the Borivli section of WEH had the highest traffic density in Mumbai, with 76 vehicles passing through the test points per minute, while at Marine Drive there were 27 vehicles per minute.
One of the main components of dust pollution is viscous particulate matter, which is released in the exhaust gas of the car and deposited on the leaves of common roadside plants.
More than 40% of air pollution is caused by dust, while the rest is caused by gas.
Particulate matter is a mixture of solid particles and droplets found in the air.
Some particles, such as dust, dirt, soot or smoke, are large enough to be visible to the naked eye.
The others are too small to be detected with an electron microscope.
Their size is from 2.
5 to 10 microns.
These particles can go deep into the lungs, and may even enter the blood, leading to mutations, and sometimes even death.
AG Faqih and Nitesh Joshi, professor of botany at Bandra Rizvi College and Professor of Botany at Jai Hind College at Churchgate, selected eight locations in the city based on traffic density from February 2013 to January 2014, and monitored dust deposits on plant leaves on roadside and partitions
Documented methods for quantifying dust pollution.
The attractions to choose from are the WEH in bdrive, Borivli, Eastern Highway in Ghatkopar, LBS Marg in Mulund, Malad Link Road, Bandra Linking Road
"In any case, dust pollution in cities is higher than WHO guidelines.
However, Borivli WEH and Ghatkopar EEH are the worst due to the amazing traffic congestion.
The situation at Goregaon SV Road, Krishna Chandra Marg and Mulund LBS Marg is slightly better, "said professor Nitesh Joshi.
This study shows that May is the darkest month in Mumbai, and the leaf dust value gradually increases from December to 5, which is part of a research paper accepted by the International Journal, plant Science Yearbook two weeks ago
The researchers also studied four plants.
Nine-fold GE, peach, pea root and fig-
It is common to grow along road dividers because of their Dust Collection properties.
They found figs.
Often referred to as figs or banyan trees, grown in South Asia and Australia, both indoors and outdoors)
Most effective in dust removal.
Professor Nitesh Joshi said, "This is due to the surface geometry and external features of its leaves, such as hair, skin, length, height and canopy of small leaves.
"The researchers recommend that city planners and civic groups grow more figs next to the partitions.
However, an official from the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board said, "according to WHO standards, the level of particulate matter in the atmosphere must be below 200 micrograms/cubic meter.
But Mumbai is four to five times higher.
How much help these plants will have is doubtful and may be rare.
He added that an increasing number of ongoing infrastructure projects and the number of vehicles entering the city have intensified air pollution.
"Air quality will not improve until we finish all the projects," he said . ".
Yellow ficus leaves for dust.
Var nuda growing along the road divider is cleaned with a brush to completely remove dust particles from the surface.
There is a ribbon on the leaves.
On the seventh day, collect leaves from all locations in a zip bag.
Then wash in the lab, dust is collected on the filter paper and weighed after drying.
Traffic was determined by a digital camera.
