Plume Labs helps people breathe and improve their health by managing their environmental exposure to air pollution, thanks to open data, AI and personal hardware trackers.
Plume Labs is leading the field of personal connected environmental health and wellness, by building connected devices and a data platform to help consumers understand their environment and monitor exposure to air pollution for improved wellbeing.
The company’s mobile application the Plume Air Report uses advanced machine learning algorithms and open government data from 12,000 public monitoring stations to provide real-time and hourly air quality forecasts in major cities in over 60 countries worldwide. Its global data platform, the Plume Air Cloud API, provides both B2B services and free access to innovative environmental projects. The company’s award-winning mobile air quality tracker, Flow, helps users track, monitor and reduce their exposure to air pollution wherever they are – and crowdsource pollution levels to build hyperlocal maps of urban air quality. The product was announced at CES 2017 and was a CES Innovation Awards 2017 Honoree in the “Tech for a Better World” category.
Plume Labs was founded in 2014 by Romain Lacombe and David Lissmyr and was covered by international media in 2015 when its data platform revealed pollution levels in Paris had topped Beijing for a day, leading the French government to cut half the cars from the road for a day. Its campaign to raise awareness of air pollution by flying tweeting pigeons with air-sensing backpacks over London went viral in March 2016, and was covered by CNN, the BBC, Time Magazine and other major global media, resulting in an estimated 600 million impressions worldwide and two Cannes Lions awards.
Plume Labs employs 20 people, is headquartered in Paris, France with offices in Beijing, China, and raised 4 million euros in seed funding. More information at plumelabs.com.
