About air quality index values

Our scientists create an air quality index by converting measured pollutant concentrations into index values which make it easier to interpret air quality data by reducing the complexity associated with pollutant concentrations.

The index value is the pollutant concentration expressed as a proportion of the National Environment Protection Measure for Ambient Air Quality (Air NEPM) standard or the Environmental Protection (Air) Policy 2008 (Air EPP) objective.

About Benzene

Benzene is an organic compound occurring naturally in fossil fuels and entering the atmosphere from both natural processes and human activities that involve the combustion of organic matter. Long-term exposure results in an increased incidence of blood and immune system disorders, including anaemia and leukaemia.

The standard/guideline for Benzene is 250ppb (24hr avg).
