Keep your finger on the pulse of Air Pollution API

The Air Pollution API can facilitate the urban planning and the abatement of traffic congestion. Our quality data makes the sustainability goals achievable for your business. The Air Pollution API provides current, forecasted and short term history data on the concentration of CO; NO; NO2; O3; SO2; PM2.5; PM10 and NH3 in the air for any location around the World. It is included into all the OpenWeather subscriptions, starting with the freemium plan.

Why should we care about the air pollution?

Numerous governmental policies are mobilising finances to mitigate the air pollution, by facilitating renewable energy innovations and bringing the smart city concepts into life. This should gradually reduce the GHG’s emission into our atmosphere and create new employment opportunities, delivering social and economic benefits.

Free air pollution data makes the sustainability goals achievable

Similar to COVID-19, the Air Pollution is another acute problem that requires substantial research. Being data-scientists ourselves, we would like to keep the weather data free for students and scholars. Additionally, we are always happy to provide you with the necessary support from our responsive team, and our R&D department is always open for cooperation.
