Sulphur Dioxide Chokes Bulgaria's Dimitrovgrad Once Again
Yet another high concentration of sulphur dioxide in the southern Bulgarian town of Dimitrovgrad was reported Tuesday.
The pollution monitoring system in the town detected levels of the chemical substance exceeding the permitted threshold of 350 micrograms per cubic meter at 3 pm and 4 pm.
Poisonous emissions from the thermal power plants of the Maritza-Iztok Complex are the cause for the elevated concentration of sulphur dioxide in the area.
