Medellín sets out to improve air quality

As the most industrialized and populated city in the Aburrá Valley, not to mention the city with the most vehicles on the streets, Medellín also has the highest levels of pollution, especially in the downtown area.

According to an inventory of environmental contaminants, mobile sources are the biggest culprits but local authorities are determined to make changes that will improve the quality of the air.

Some of those measures include improving fuel quality, offering sustainable means of transportation as well as encouraging the use of non-motorized alternatives like bicycles; local universities and other entities will participate in monitoring air quality in nine municipalities.
