Air Pollutant Index- API Malaysia/KL is less than 150 ppmv

June 24 2013- 5 pm

Four of the index's pollutant components (i.e., carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide) are reported in ppmv but PM10 particulate matter is reported in μg/m3.

Right now its less than 150 for KL.. But unless it rains, the levels are going up.

Indera Mahkota, Pahang:
< 150 ppmv
Batu Muda, Wilayah Persekutuan:
< 150 ppmv
Kemaman, Terengganu:
< 200 ppmv
Balok Baru, Kuantan, Pahang
< 200 ppmv
Petaling Jaya, Selangor:
< 200 ppmv
Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan
< 300 ppmv
Bandaraya Melaka, Melaka :
< 400 ppmv
Muar, Johor:
< 550 ppmv

Caution: People are coming up with these anti-virus air purifiers.. These will do nothing to affect the suphur or carbon oxides.. Best way is to steam your room, and then use air-conditioner to condense it back.. The steam will absorb much of the gases present.
