Berlin airport to use bees to check air quality

Schonefeld plans to bring in beekeepers for “honey monitoring”

Berlin-Schonefeld International Airport has announced that it may use bees and honey to monitor the quality of the air. Beekeepers will be brought in to study how the environment is affected by the development of Berlin-Brandenburg, which is replacing Schonefeld at its location to the south-east of the city while Berlin-Tegel closes permanently.
“The honey monitoring will supplement our air quality control system,” explained the airport’s environment chief Jochen Heimberg. “In addition to studying the honey, we’ll also be looking at the bees and their honeycombs to get an overall picture of the pollution situation.”
