Sustainder measures particulate matter

Sustainder measures particulate matter

In early 2019, Sustainder and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) fitted streetlights in Hilversum with sensors for the continuous measurement of concentrations of particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide. The luminaires that house the sensors were specially designed for this purpose by Spark, in cooperation with Sustainder.

Smart City

With its luminaires - Anne and Alexia – Sustainder is effectively implementing the Smart City concept: smart technology in service of the liveability and sustainability of public space. Depending on the modules installed, the luminaires can support or perform numerous tasks: from air measurement and traffic registration or support for the mobile network. 

Sustainder’s luminaires are already installed in more than 175 municipalities in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium. Hilversum is one of the first municipalities whether they have been deployed to continuously measure air quality in real-time, connected to the RIVM data portal.


“This is exactly what we designed the luminaires with Sustainder for,” says Koos Munneke, designer at Spark. “To accommodate technology that contributes to the quality of the living environment. And to see Anne and Alexia work in more and more places is, of course, fantastic.”
