SIDCO (Small Scale industrial developmental corporation), AQI (Air quality index), EPA (Environmental Protection agency), CPCB (Central Pollution Control board), PM2.5 (Particulate matter of Size 2.5μm), PM10 (Particulate matter of Size 10μm), SPM (Suspended Particulate Matter), TSPM (Total suspended particulate matter)


Air being one of the essential for the survival of human life in the earth. WHO demands the indoor as well as outdoor ambient air quality pureness in which the human inhales. Our intended project dealt with air quality Monitoring and modeling of SIDCO industrial cluster of Coimbatore. SIDCO(Small Scale industrial developmental corporation) of Coimbatore is a 450 acres of area stretch located nearby the heart of the city. Which is Governmental organized industrial cluster. Completely for the year 2015 at SIDCO industrial estate and modeled the range of pollutants by using modeling prediction software for its future effects. On the monitoring station we used equipment’s like respirable dust sampler, Fine dust sampler and particulate matter measurer for PM2.5 and PM10.The study showed the Air quality index(AQI) for the overall industrial cluster area and the inferred readings were compared with the air quality index of EPA(Environmental Protection agency Standards) and Central Pollution Control boards(CPCB) India.
