EarthSense partners with Ganeca for air quality monitoring in Indonesia

EarthSense have announced a strategic partnership with Ganeca Environmental Services, bringing its bespoke solutions and services to the Indonesian government and industries to visualise and manage air quality issues.

Following rapid population growth in Indonesia, accompanied by high levels of industrialisation and urbanisation, and with almost 23 million vehicles in the Jakarta metropolitan area alone, big cities in Indonesia face serious challenges in managing air quality. EarthSense and Ganeca’s partnership will enable both government and commercial organisations to monitor ambient air pollutants in real-time and track and visualise data to implement change where necessary.

Founded in early 2014, Ganeca is one of the leading consultants and providers of environmental management technology in Indonesia. The partnership will provide accurate and reliable air quality monitoring solutions in the country, with EarthSense’s Zephyr air quality sensors providing governments, local authorities, and industries with the ability to take real-time measurements of pollution. The air quality data can then be analysed in EarthSense’s MyAir web application, where it can be visualised, analysed, and downloaded, allowing for strategic changes to be planned.

Muhammad Sonny Abfertiawan. Senior Managing Director at Ganeca Environmental Services said: ‘We are thrilled to partner with EarthSense and look forward to bringing its complete air quality monitoring solution to our customers. We believe this collaboration will provide reliable and accurate air quality monitoring technology to various sectors including the Indonesian Government, manufacturing, mining industries, and academic communities, facilitating scientific research endeavours. The air quality challenges in Indonesia are growing, but the innovative MyAir app will allow its users to isolate areas of concern, enabling the authorities and industries to make changes to reduce pollution levels.’

Greg Lewis, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at EarthSense, said: ‘We are delighted to have partnered with Ganeca Environmental Services and bring our industry-leading suite of air quality solutions to Indonesia. The partnership will allow us to join our air quality expertise with Ganeca Environmental Services’ tailored approach to environmental challenges to improve air quality in Indonesia.’

EarthSense’s Zephyr sensor is an iMCERTS certified real-time air quality monitor that takes live measurements of ambient air pollutants, including nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), and particulate matter (PM2.5, PM10, TVOC). The air quality data collected is viewed on the MyAir web app, where it can be viewed by stakeholders, company management and-via a public portal, the general public. The data can be downloaded and analysed to track patterns or areas of interest – such as pollution hotspots or peak times, allowing for stakeholders to make data-driven decisions.
