High levels of airborne dust in the air – NRK Drums and Finmark

In Tromsø, there is now a large amount of aerial dust in the sky. Boarding cars take to the streets to lower levels and improve air quality.

While the broom can improve air quality, ordinary cars do the opposite.

– All cars spin dust. Not just those with embedded tires. I think no one in town noticed the bad air quality, says Barbera Vogel (MDG).

He sits in the presidency of the municipality and asks people to leave the car for the next few days in solidarity with people struggling with respiratory problems.

– In times as bad as they are now, you need to consider whether you really need a car.

Vögele was the first to comment on this Northern Light.

Bad air quality will make the situation worse Asthma and other respiratory problems.

Strosant is the reason

Leif Harald Pedersen, manager of the urban operations unit for Tromsø municipality, points out that loose sand and embedded tires that are icy in winter are the main cause of high levels of airborne dust in the air.

– Loose sand is the main cause of all dust nowadays, he says.

Not only in Tromso, well-paved roads in winter can lead to problems.

Hamar, Horstad, Bodo, Lorenzko, Rana and Tronheim show that the Norwegian Environment Agency’s measurement service for air quality measures moderate and high levels of airborne dust.

Tireless labor

Six specialized vehicles now operate dual shifts on Tromsø to improve air quality.

– Driver Kajel-Birker Lorensen says we can get five to six tons in an hour.

Peterson says they would have liked it if there had been more resources to pay for the roads.

– Everyone wants to spend on the road now. This is a problem, we can not be everywhere, says the unit leader.

Hope to change more tires

Although studless tires emit dust that spreads in the air, embedded tires are the worst, says Barbera Vogel.

In 2018, the President decided to introduce a program with an embedded tire network to get more people on studless winter tires. Only 100 people have used the program.

– The action is not as effective as we would like. I understand that people are nervous and do not want to switch to studless tires, but I hope many more will try this, says Vogel.

She realized that even the call to park the car was not heard by many.

– Such a call often does not work. For me it is very sad. I want people to really think about what others are expressing.
