Monitoring of air quality in Montenegro to be improved
Last updated: 17.02.2014 //
Improved capacity to monitor air quality is important not only for the citizens, but also for Montenegro meeting its obligations in the EU integration process. That is why Norway is helping Montenegro getting more advanced equipment to measure air emissions.
The Center for ecotoxicological research (CETI) in Podgorica, Montenegro is the only accredited laboratory for ambient air quality monitoring in Montenegro. Norway supports the center with a grant of 85.500 € to cover the purchase of necessary equipment needed to successfully implement the monitoring of air quality and emission control. The equipment is essential for succeeding in meeting all the obligations foreseen by Montenegrin legislation, as well as meeting EU Standards. The tender procedure is already conducted, and the equipment is expected to be delivered in the period between March and April.
