Inspection, counseling and policy publicity are the ways of the implementation for the project. The inspection is primarily performed on the caterers who are large-scale, repeatedly reported to the authority and apt to produce pollution. Equipped with the particle mass profiler ＆ counter, we can learn about the caterer’s general information, the status of how air and water pollution and food waste disposal go.
