REVIEW PAPER Review of Singapore s air quality and greenhouse gas emissions: Current situation and opportunities Erik Velasco, 1, / and Matthias Roth 2 1 Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), Center for Environmental Sensing and Modeling (CENSAM), Singapore 2 Department of Geography, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore / Please address correspondence to: Erik Velasco, Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), Center for Environmental Sensing and Modeling (CENSAM), S-16-05-08, 3 Science Drive 2, Singapore 117543; e-mail: [email protected] Singapore has many environmental accomplishments to its credit. Accessible data on air quality indicates that all criteria pollutants satisfy both U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) air quality standards and guidelines, respectively. The exception is PM 2.5 (particles with an aerodynamic diameter ± 2.5 m m), which is not currently considered a criteria pollutant in Singapore but may potentially be the major local air pollution problem and cause for health concern.
