New report released `PM2.5 in the UK`

by Environmental Protection UK  (Jan. 20, 2011)

The Scotland and Northern Ireland Forum for Environmental Research (SNIFFER) has released a new report on PM2.5 in the UK. The report provides a concise summary of the current state of scientific knowledge on particle pollution with a diameter of 2.5 nm or less (PM2.5). The report covers the health effects, sources, speciation (determine ...

Global health impact of PM2.5 air pollution assessed

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Apr. 16, 2015)

PM2.5 air pollution can have a significant impact on human health, not only for local populations, but also in regions far from its source of emission, shows a new study. The study calculates ‘damage factors’ to human health of PM2.5 and in different parts of the world. PM2.5, made up of any particles smaller than 2.5 micrometres in ...

SM200 receives U.S EPA FEM approval for PM2.5

by Opsis AB  (Sep. 12, 2012)

On August 16, the U.S EPA notified us that the review of our application for SM200 particulate monitor as Federal Equivalent Method had been completed, and SM200 was approved. To get the PM2.5 approval, five field tests, of about one month each, were conducted at four different locations in the U.S.A. Locations were specifically chosen by the EPA ...

European air quality in 2020: success story for PM2.5

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Feb. 26, 2015)

Levels of the air pollutant PM2.5 in Europe will continue to fall in 2020, concludes a recent study. Furthermore, deposition of nitrogen from air pollution will also drop. The outlook seems less positive for ground-level ozone, however, as large amounts of this pollutant continue drift over to Europe from other continents. This study reports on ...

PM2.5 and ozone pollution exposure increases risk of cardiac arrest

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Jul. 4, 2013)

People exposed to fine particle (PM2.5) and ozone pollution are at increased risk of suffering out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, according to a recent Finnish study. Cardiac arrest is more likely within 24 hours after exposure to PM2.5 and up to several days after exposure to ozone. Previous studies have already linked air pollution with sudden ...

PM2.5 air pollution strongly linked to increased risk of heart attacks

by Science for Environment Policy - European Commission DG Environment News Alert Service  (Apr. 30, 2014)

Long-term exposure to particulate matter pollution is strongly linked with heart attacks and angina, a new European study of over 100 000 people has shown. The results indicate that this association exists at levels below current European limits, and that the burden of disease due to particulate matter may have been largely underestimated.  ...

Integrated pollution, climate and energy access policies needed to meet WHO PM2.5 limits

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Oct. 10, 2013)

A new study finds that meeting WHO Air Quality Guidelines (AQG) on particulate emissions by 2030, thereby improving global human health, will require a combination of stringent policies on air pollution, climate change and access to clean cooking fuels. Outdoor and household air pollution has been estimated to be among the leading global causes ...

Subway stations with platform sliding doors and good ventilation reduce passengers’ exposure to PM2.5

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Mar. 17, 2016)

Underground trains are among the most widely used public transport systems in cities worldwide. A study investigating the chemical composition and source of particles in Barcelona subway stations found that a new station design, with sliding doors that separate the platform from the tunnel and good ventilation, reduced the concentration of fine ...
