Air pollution is one of the major environmental problems with short, medium and long-term effects. Substances emitted into the atmosphere (CO2, SO2, NOx, PM10) contribute to the amplification of the effects of climate change, acidification, air quality deterioration. The most important sources of PM10 emissions come from commercial, institutional and household sectors, industrial processes, road transport and agriculture. In order to protect the atmosphere and improve air quality, are needed measures of control at pollutant emissions. Early pollution reduction actions have led to a significant decrease of PM10 emissions especially from the production and distribution of energy, combustion processes and road transport has significantly diminished. Improving air quality requires continuous monitoring of emissions and, in particular emissions of particulate matter/ PM10. The paper presents the results of the monitoring activity of particulate matter/ PM10 from the thermo-energetic industry. The results of the monitoring include the particulate matter/ PM10 values in the range (68.083 mg/Nm3 - 93.166 mg/Nm3), values that do not exceed the emission limit values.
