Study shows Hong Kong airport’s proposed runway may cause the level of nitrogen dioxide to go beyond the government’s limit.
A Bloomberg report said, “Annual cumulative concentrations of the gas in the airport and nearby areas may range between 16.5 micrograms and 81.1 micrograms per cubic meter, Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Ltd., appointed by the Airport Authority Hong Kong to assess the effect on air quality, said in its report.”
The authority will conduct a more detailed assessment and ensure the project complies with the law, according to Bloomberg.
The air quality report was based on a maximum projected capacity of 620,000 annual flight movements.
