Plovdiv had the most Polluted Air in the Last Heating Season
Plovdiv residents breathed the most dirty air during the last heating season, Darik radio reported. This shows data from the Airbg.info platform, which has uploaded 42 million measurements of fine particulate matter throughout the country for the last year.
The platform is created and maintained entirely by volunteers and the data from mobile stations coincide with those of state authorities, although the measuring instruments themselves are sometimes cheaper. 37 people die prematurely every day in Bulgaria because of diseases caused by the contaminated air. Out of a total of 160 days of heating in Plovdiv, people breathed polluted air for 86 days, in Sofia 70 days and in Varna 48 days. This is shown by Airbg.info data gathered with the voluntary work of 600 people across the country.
