The CityAir project was initiated by Tion, a Russian technology company.

Tion develops advanced air purification technologies and creates devices and services that help people breathe fresh and clean air. Thousands of consumers across Russia, the CIS and China already enjoy Tion’s climate equipment and smart indoor climate control systems.

Tion’s goal is to design the best energy-efficient climate systems. By harnessing data on indoor and outdoor air quality, Tion’s products and technologies help reduce the negative impact of air pollution on human well-being.

In the CityAir project, Tion’s expertise in microclimate management is coupled with its partners’ competences in engineering, air quality measurement and modeling. This unique partnership allows many problems related to environmental monitoring to be solved successfully.

The Academlab analytical laboratory brings research and methodological expertise to the development of the CityAir stations, conducting comparative measurements in laboratory conditions and at the sites of experimental stations.

Academlab also regularly compares data from the CityAir stations with laboratory data obtained using alternative measurement tools and techniques. For example, data on the dust content (PM2.5 and PM10 particles) are verified using gravimetric techniques or an alternative optical particle sensor. Such verifications ensure the high quality of data obtained from the stations.

Academlab was accredited by the Federal Accreditation Service (Accreditation Certificate No. ROSS RU.0001.21PZH08) and licensed by the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (License No. P / 2016 / 3007 / 100 / L as of 14 March 2016) for the activities in hydrometeorology and related fields.
