Berlin Airports agrees to honey monitoring25.05.2011
According to Jochen Heimberg, Head of the Environmental Department at Berlin Airports, “The process of honey monitoring complements our system of monitoring air quality. Besides honey, bees and honeycombs will also be monitored, in order to gain a comprehensive overview of the situation regarding pollutants.”
Honey monitoring is primarily a food study and provides conclusive information on the quality of the honey as regards the airborne pollutants examined. The monitoring process will see Berlin Airports work with beekeepers from the region, whose bee colonies fly around the airport.
