Beijing Will Monitor Fine Particle Pollution on Its Main Roads

March 21 (Bloomberg) -- The city of Beijing will start monitoring fine-particle pollution smaller than 2.5 micrometers on 30 of its main roads, the official Xinhua News Agency reported today.

The measurements of so-called PM 2.5 pollutants will be made known regularly, Xinhua said, citing officials with the municipal environment committee whom it did not identify.

Beijing aims to cut PM 2.5 levels by 15 percent by 2015 compared with 2010 levels, Xinhua said.
