Traffic jam that occurs in Medan is getting worse and worse, this certainly affects the waste of energy, it can be seen from the existing traffic jam, traffic jam makes energy wasted due to vehicles that are idle but still in a state of ignition (engine, air conditioning, etc.). road capacity is not proportional to the number of vehicles (private and public) that use it.
Related to that, air quality has an impact on the health of the people around, the result of combustion from vehicles containing CO2, which is a poison for humans. This air pollution must always be measured using an Air Quality Measurement Tool. By measuring and monitoring the environment, concrete data will be obtained to control air pollution in the community environment, so that the data can be an appeal and reference in terms of tackling and preventing wider air pollution.
For this reason, UMA implements and tests air and noise quality measuring devices in the UMA campus environment.
UMA is very concerned in creating a healthy and clean campus environment. This was demonstrated by participating in UI Greenmetric World University Ranking.
