The Problem

Air and noise pollution do not recognize geographic boundaries.

Noise and vibration from construction and demolition sites impact the quality of life of residents living in surrounding areas.

Emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) can react in the atmosphere to form fine particle (PM2.5) pollution. Similarly, NOX emissions can react in the atmosphere with volatile organic compounds (VOC) and sunlight to create ground-level ozone pollution. These pollutants can travel great distances affecting air quality and public health locally and regionally in areas downwind.

Our Solution

  • Businesses can initiate a smart contract in minutes specifying target sensor levels by time of day
  • Residents near construction sites or industrial areas request access and join the contract
  • Commons Impact sensors monitor noise, vibration and air quality levels
  • Smart contracts provide instant financial compensation to impacted parties
