Tehran air quality report reveals alarming figures

The Tehran Air Quality Control Company's recent disclosure highlights the capital city's troubling air quality situation. Since the start of the year, Tehran has endured 107 days of unhealthy air for sensitive groups and 12 days of unhealthy air for all demographics, posing serious health risks, says the company's report.

Factors contributing to this crisis include heavy traffic congestion, industrial emissions, topographical challenges trapping pollutants, and adverse weather conditions hindering dispersion.

Tehran’s dense population exacerbates emissions from various sources, worsening the situation.

Efforts to combat these issues are underway, including stricter emission standards, promoting public transportation, and investing in green technologies.
