    Abstract :

    Indonesian air pollution indexing system namely ISPU is stipulated as Head Decree of Environmental Impact Control Agency Number 107 Year 1997 about Calculation and Reporting on Information of Air Pollution Standard Index (ISPU). All parameters in the index has its own concentration range for every Air Pollution Standard Index number ranging from 0 to 500, except for nitrogen dioxide parameter that takes range from 200 to 500 of the Air Pollution Standard Index number with 1130 µg/m3 as minimum concentration. In this research, measurement and evaluation of ambient air quality for nitrogen dioxide concentration is using secondary and primary data from some area in indonesia. Nitrogen dioxide parameter was evaluated for the adaptation of National Ambient Air Quality Standards to air pollution indexing system in Indonesia. This research describe about maximum nitrogen dioxide concentration data that collected from oil and gas processing facilities in Indonesia at a couple of years. The research indicated that nitrogen dioxide parameter does not give significant contribution for Air Pollution Standard Index status in Indonesia. The determination of an Air Pollution Standard Index status was based on the most dominant parameter, while nitrogen dioxide was never as determiner for it. Maximum number of Air Pollution Standard Index for nitrogen dioxide was 33, while the minimum standard is 200. Range for maximum concentration from monitoring data in Indonesia was merely 2 to 187 µg/m3 and it was similar to some research carried out in in other counties with 0.4 – 150 µg/m3. The toxicity evaluation of nitrogen dioxide parameter from selected literatures indicated that, there is effect to individual with asthma at concentration between 99.64 – 564 µg/m3. Indonesian authority need to reconsider standard for nitrogen dioxide parameter to determine Air Pollution Standard Index. The adaptation of National Ambient Air Quality Standards to Air Pollution Standard Index in Indonesia should consider the need of a study that appropriate to Indonesia conditions. This research could be an input for Indonesian government regulation in air pollution indexing system, especially for nitrogen dioxide parameter. The summarised data of nitrogen dioxide concentration and Air Pollution Standard Index status could be the first input to it.
