Air quality monitoring involves a series of quantitative and qualitative observation and measurement of several air condition indicators, such as concentrations of air components. For this purpose, it is necessary to take several samples of air (gases, dusts, VOCs, physicochemical agents) with specialized equipment having the lowest measuring ranges, sometimes going up to ppt concentrations. At present, most environmental laboratories use individual equipment / analysers for each analysed environmental parameter or carry out sampling in an absorbent / adsorbent environment, and then analyse compounds in laboratories. The current paper presents the advantages of sampling / analysis of environmental compounds with the help of mobile environmental laboratories which allow in situ sampling and analysis of several air quality indicators and fast identification of polluted areas by simultaneous measurements of several samples and strategic and tactical decision making to confute pollution and prevent it. Having a mobile environmental laboratory is equivalent to using the latest concepts and methods of in-situ environmental parameter analysis technology to monitor environmental quality, securing the acquisition and processing of data but requiring specific knowledge in the field to transmit information as accurate and rapid as possible to the beneficiary or environmental authority.
