Care Air Centre

In order to monitor both source emissions and ambient air quality on a real time basis, TNPCB has established a Centre for Accessing Real Time Air (Quality) Information Report (CARE AIR) at the Head office of the Board. This is a continuous real time emission monitoring system which is functioning on 24 X 7 basis. This is the first of its kind in the whole country and has been appreciated by the Government of India. When the emission levels exceed the norms, an inbuilt alarm system has been established to inform the concerned industry and the District Environmental Engineer/Member Secretary through automated SMS for remedial action immediately. Many large scale industries have been connected to the CARE AIR centre and the emissions are monitored continuously. Apart from the above, monitoring of effluent discharge has also been included and monitored at the centre.
