1 Air Quality monitoring, assessment and reporting in Republic of Macedonia Aneta Stefanovska Head of division for monitoring WB regional workshop on ambient air quality Prague, Czech Republic

2 Legislation  Law on Ambient Air Quality  Secondary legislation Decree on limit values of ambient air quality and alert thresholds Rulebook on ambient air quality assessment Rulebook on monitoring and reporting (draft) Rulebook for preparing plans and programs (draft) List of zones and agglomerations (draft)

3 Institutions performing air quality monitoring in the Republic of Macedonia Public Health Institutes  Public Health Institute - Skopje, which has established monitoring network for measuring the concentrations of SO 2, black smoke, aerosediment, CO and lead at 7 measuring points in the City  Public Health Institute - Veles measures SO 2, black smoke and aerosediment at 3 measuring points in the City  Public Health Institute in Kumanovo, Kocani, Tetovo, Bitola, Ohrid, Prilep and Stip monitor aerosediment

4 Institutions performing air quality monitoring in the Republic of Macedonia Hydrometeorological Administration measures SO 2 and black smoke at 9 measuring points in Skopje and in 10 other cities in the country: Berovo, Bitola, Tetovo, Gevgelija, Kumanovo, Ohrid, Prilep, Stip, Veles and Lazaropole. Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning At present, the Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning has 15 automatic air quality monitoring stations

5 Establishment of SAQMS 1998 year JICA Study “Monitoring of air pollution in Republic of Macedonia” 4 monitoring stations in Skopje (Karpos, Centar, Gazi Baba and Lisice) Central station (MEPP)

6 Establishment of SAQMS 2002 year PHARE COP '99 3 monitoring stations (Kicevo, Kocani and Kumanovo) 3 High Volume Sampler (HVS)

7 Establishment of SAQMS 2004 year CARDS monitoring stations (2 in Veles, 2 in Bitola, Tetovo and Lazaropole) 1 traffic monitoring station (Rektorat – Skopje) 1 Mobil monitoring station (Kavadarci) 1 High Volume Sampler (HVS) 6 Low Volume Sampler (LVS) Balance room Calibration laboratory Service car

8 State Air Quality monitoring system

9 Monitoring stations CO-carbon monoxide SO2-sulphur dioxide Nitrogen oxides O 3 – ozone PM 10 - suspended particulate matters in air with size below 10 microns BTX Environmental parameters Wind velocity Wind direction Temperature Humidity Pressure Global radiation Meteorological parameters

12 State Air Quality monitoring system THERMO Electron Corporation Measuring methodologies :  The Model 43C pulsed fluorescence SO 2 analyzer  The Model 42C Chemiluminescence NO-NO 2 -NO x analyzer  The Model 48C Gas Filter Correlation (GFC) CO analyzer (infrared absorption)  The Model 49C UV photometric ozone analyzer  PM analyzer: FH 62 I-R; b-ray absorption

13 Calibration Laboratory Established in May 2004 Calibration of the referent analyzers with primary static injection system Determine the correlation between primary calibration method and other methods that we use secondary dynamic dilution system gas transfer standard field calibrator

14 Low volume samplers 6 LVS PM10 (low volume samplers) were installed in April 2005: Karpos (Skopje); Lisice (Skopje); Veles; Kicevo; Jegunovce; Kavadarci

15 High volume samplers 4 HVS PM10 (high volume samplers) were installed in April 2005 in Kumanovo; Bitola; Kocani; and Lazaropole

16 LVS and HVS

17 PM10 and HM measurements procedures Collected Samples (24h) are transported in Central Laboratory PM10 is measured gravimetrically Filters are prepared by prEN14902:2005 standard Samples are analyzed by ICP In 2006 indicative measurements were carried on for: PM10; As; Cd; Hg; Ni; Cr; Fe; V; Mn; Pb; Cu; Zn and Mg.

18 Service and maintenance of SAQMS Operational Program for working of the SAQMS Annual plan for service and maintenance 2/4 week service 3 month service 6 month service 1 year changing

19 Projects CIM (GTZ) project “Technical support for service and maintenance of SAQMS” Twining project “Air quality improvement” Component 4 - Air quality measurements and laboratory work Training technical staff on servicing, maintenance and calibration of instruments, preparation of SOP’s, QA/QC procedures Draft version of QA/QC plan has been prepared Component 3 – Preliminary air quality assessment

20 Preliminary assessment of air quality First preliminary assessment report – CARDS 2004 project Zones were designated according to administrative distribution following statistical regions borders 7 zones and 1 agglomeration

21 Preliminary assessment of air quality Improved preliminary assessment report -Twining project “Air Quality improvement” CARDS 2005 programme These three main assessment methods were used for preliminary air quality assessment: air quality measurements for the period 2005 – 2007 from the State air quality monitoring system air emission inventories Cadastre of polluters and pollutants in Republic of Macedonia CORINAIR emission inventory air pollution modelling

22 Zones and agglomeration in Republic of Macedonia

23 Assessment regime in zones and agglomerations Agglomeration/ZoneSO 2 NO 2 PM10COO3O3 Agglomeration Skopje11111 Zone Eastern11111 Western11111

24 Minimum number of stations per zones and agglomeration ZoneInhabitantsSO 2 NO 2 NOxPM 10 COOzone healthecosystemhealthecosystem Skopje Eastern Western Total

25 Significant disadvantages Preparation of Preliminary assessment report Data (gaps, coverage, validation, correction) Lack of additional indicative measurements Lack of meteorological data Not available updated air emission data Not applicable Dispersion modeling method Lack of personal

26 Public Information Daily information State Inspectorate of Environment City Centre for Information and Warning Monthly report Hydro meteorological administration Republic Institute for Health protection Institutes for Health Protection Municipalities Annual report All reports are published on the Ministry's web site

27 Reporting Current reporting towards EEA and EC EoI data (97/101/EC) Monthly ozone data (2002/3/EC) Summer ozone data (2002/3/EC) Future reporting towards EEA and EC Annual report on air quality (questionnaire 2004/461/EC)

28 Overall problems Regular service and maintenance of the monitoring stations Problem with realization of procurement of spare parts, calibration gas bottles Lack of employees Procurement of a software for data validation, management and dissemination

29 Future steps Preparing the accreditation of calibration laboratory The SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) concerning all the relevant activities of the Calibration laboratory should be in use. Adapt the QA/QC plan in full operation Build up the uncertainty budget for the air quality measurements Participate the intercomparison exercises organized by EC/JRC and by WHO Participate in the meetings of AQUILA group

30 What kind of support do we expect? Training for implementation of QA/QC procedure in calibration laboratory Training for establishment of PM2.5 monitoring Financial support for participate on the AQUILA meetings Support for Annual reporting on air quality (questionnaire 2004/461/EC)
