Caltex Refineries (Qld) Ltd operate a network of three monitoring stations in the Wynnum area – Wynnum, Wynnum West and Lytton – to assess the impact of refinery emissions on nearby residential areas. The monitoring station at Wynnum is located in the grounds of Nazareth House at Wynnum North and has been operating since 2004. Monitoring at the Wynnum West and Lytton monitoring stations commenced in March 2014.

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.
