The interdependence between air quality, human health and the state of the environment has prompted the development of research on causes, control and improvement of existing pollutants in the air. This paper addresses the problem of air pollution by PM2.5 and PM10 in particulate matter. There was draws attention to solutions to protect air against existing PM2.5 and PM10. Measurements of PM2.5 and PM10 concentrations in selected twenty control points on the campus of the Białystok University of Technology were discussed and analysed. On the basis of the obtained results, an assessment of the air quality in the area in question was performed. Slight hourly fluctuations in the concentration of particulate matter in the air were observed, higher in the morning and evening hours. On 15 March and 16 March, daily exceedances of the permissible PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations were recorded at both the Białystok University of Technology campus and the air quality monitoring stations in Białystok. Comparing the influence of meteorological conditions on PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations, faint correlations were found for temperature and wind speed. As temperature increased, particulate matter concentrations decreased. Low wind velocities corresponded with exceedances of the permissible daily concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 in the air.
