Why is air polluted in Rustavi?
The main source of air pollution with particulate matter (PM) is industry in Rustavi. 97% of emissions in the city come from the largest enterprises/polluters.
These enterprises fail to meet the air protection requirements; the vast majority of them do not have filters or waste management plan; industrial process is not in compliance with standards; the state system of supervision, control and enforcement is faulty, sanctions for violations are too low and disproportionate, green space in the city is insufficient and the level of public awareness is low.
