In general, air quality monitoring has an essential role in the environment monitoring system. The atmosphere is a proper medium for pollutants to spread in the environment reason for an on-site monitoring of an industrial area in the southern-east of Romania, near Calarasi. This monitoring starts with May 2009 and continues with seasonal collecting data for year 2009 and 2010.

For on-site analysis portable analyzers, part from a complex system of ICIT Rm. Valcea mobile laboratory, were used. These automatic analyzers can monitored a wide range of pollutants as CO2, CO, NO, NO2, SO2, PM10, O3, CH4, THC, besides meteorological parameters like wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity. In addition to these three conventional parameters, we also monitories special parameters like NH3, H2S. The carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter in the outdoor atmosphere concentrations were measured and recorded according with the Romanian legislation no. 592/25.05.2002, and no 462/01.07.1993.

With the exception of particulate matter concentrations, the results have shown a quite low level of pollution in the studied area.
