According to the UNEP, almost 10 million Chileans are exposed to levels of fine particles higher than the World Health Organisation’s standards every day. Claudio Perez, Air Quality Product Manager at SERPRAM, a SUEZ subsidiary in Chile dedicated to air quality, takes a look at this major environmental issue and the solutions that are being deployed.
