Burning garbage in a furnace – watch out for the drone


A new drone appeared over Katowice and Gliwice cities. It became a curse for all who illegally burn garbage in the furnace, poisoning the air over Silesia Region.

The machine was built by the Flytronic company and it is equipped with the FlyEye observation system and pollution detection software from the Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal.

The drone sensors analyze the chemical composition of fumes from chimneys from single- and multi-family houses. The laser counter of airborne particulate matter records the concentration of ethanol, ammonia, hydrogen chloride, formaldehyde and PM10, PM2,5 or PM1. (Kp)
