Air Quality Index Management of Medium Sized Community Space in Gurugram, Haryana



A case study details the Air Quality Index (AQI) audit and improve-
ment conducted for office space in Gurugram, Haryana (Urban Air Labs Pvt.

Ltd.). The parametric was the concentration of Particulate Matter (PM) of 2.5
(μg/m3) outdoors and indoors in the comparison. Due to the absence of volatile
organic compounds, the AQI rating and PM2.5 concentration directly affect
quality status representation. The safer rating of the AQI as per the NAQI
standards is 50, and for PM2.5, the average of 24 hours is 30; the safer rating

for 24 hours, the average PM2.5 as per the WHO revised standard is 15. In gen-
eral, the measured AQI and PM2.5 rates of the site were 161 ± 20 & 85 ± 10

outdoors and 181 ± 20 & 105 ± 10 indoors. Hence, the test location was equally

polluted outdoors and indoors and needed attention. With Urban Air Labs (pa-
tent applied) novel device UBreathe Life and UBreathe Mini, which uses Na-
ture-based solutions (NBS) such as Phytoremediation and other bio-mimicked

tech stacks for inducting air quality control. Using the mentioned equipment(s)
and a few preventive measures, the AQI indoors was tracked down to ± 50,

with single-pass efficiency being ~65%. The followed protocol lays a bench-
mark for future work on reducing AQI and PM in the workspace relevant to the

discussion arena. The future scope includes improving efficiency with a multi-
pass system and better regulating AQI with different devices suitable for vari-
ous configurations.
