We’re bringing air quality forecasting to businesses by opening up access to the world’s first global, crowdsourced, hardware-enabled air quality data platform with our API found at plume.io. Our goal? To help as many people as possible access actionable air quality information. The Problem Air quality is increasingly important to citizens and consumers around the […]

Fourth of July 🇺🇸, Canada Day 🇨🇦, Bastille Day 🇫🇷… seems like half the world is out celebrating this month! And where there’s a festival, there are fireworks. Not to be a killjoy, but pollution can come from unlikely places. So how badly do fireworks affect air quality? 🎆 Our in-house Atmospheric Scientist ran the […]

Thanks to 12 air quality monitoring stations in Central London, the Plume Air Report lets Londoners track average pollution levels in their city. But do you know what you breathe in your borough? From street to street? Wherever you go?  Continue reading

The UN Climate Conference COP21 is critical as the impacts of climate change are accelerating, and time to develop solutions is running out. In the meantime, a global data revolution offers unprecedented opportunities to build climate resilience, by making our planet more connected and our cities smarter, cleaner and more open. During COP21, Plume Labs […]

As the UN Summit on Climate Change ramps up in Paris, we are thrilled to announce today the launch of our World Air Map, a live map of air pollution around the world. The data revolution can help policymakers cut air pollution and communities take back control of their environment. We collect half a million open […]

At Plume Labs, we believe that we’re not helpless against air pollution. Like us, dozens of startups, civic innovators and NGOs across Europe think cutting-edge technologies can help solve the problem of air pollution. We found their ideas brilliant and positive, and therefore invited them to pitch at Google’s Campus London two weeks ago. Brace […]

Last week in “The Science Behind Plume Labs – The Art of Measuring Air Pollution” we explained how we collect and analyze data from local air quality monitoring networks, and how we make sure you get accurate data. Today we unveil the second episode of “The Science Behind Plume Labs”: Predicting Air Pollution — Predicting […]

  Particulate matter, PM 10, PM 2.5, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, indoor pollution, outdoor pollution, etc.: not easy to make sense of it all. Air pollution is a complex problem, hardly visible, sometimes counterintuitive. Did you know for instance that car drivers are exposed to more than twice the amount of air pollution than pedestrians, and […]
