Missouri officials are evaluating ozone levels in the southern part of the state due to data that shows high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and oxides of nitrogen. According to the Southeast Missourian, members of the Southeast Missouri Regional Planning and Economic Development Commission's Air Quality Committee recently discussed air pollution readings and possible solutions to various air quality problems in the area.
David Grimes, deputy director of the planning commission in Perryville, Missouri, provided commission representatives with information from a "Path Forward" awareness plan. The strategy is designed to reduce air pollution and expand the state's voluntary compliance options in regards to federal standards.
However, Grimes noted that fully recognizing the data's value is critical to improve air quality throughout the region.
"We need to make sure we understand the numbers," Grimes told the news source.
VOCs can cause major problems for commercial and residential property owners, but the IQAir® GC VOC can help business operators and homeowners eliminate such issues. The air purifier is specifically designed for people who need to control VOCs and includes an advanced filter cartridge design that optimizes molecular filtration for a wide range of gaseous chemicals and odors.
