  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Air quality Monitors Track Pollution Hot-Spots

    Situated in the south west of Wales, in a largely rural area bordering the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire’s air quality is predominantly good. However, there are areas of concern where major roads pass through some of the County’s larger towns, including Llanelli, Carmarthen and Llandeilo, where air quality is dominated by the effects of road traffic. The County Council is therefore ...

  • Sino-Norwegian air pollution projects

    A co-operation was established in 1995 to start the development of air quality management systems in China. The areas selected for planning were: Yantai for a monitoring and planning system for air and water quality; and Guangzhou for an air pollution optimal abatement planning tool. The projects were based upon a modern environmental surveillance and information system, developed in ...

  • Monitoring of air pollution in Indian metropolitan cities: modelling and quality indexing

    Air quality in cities is the result of a complex interaction between natural and anthropogenic environmental conditions. Delhi, as well as many other cities in India, is facing problems concerning air pollution. The increase in industrialisation and the vehicle fleet, poor control on emissions and little use of catalytic converters, produce a great amount of particulate and toxic gases. Data on ...

  • Air pollution in Europe 1990-2004

    Overall picture This report analyses and presents changes in air pollutant emissions and their possible health or ecosystem impacts in Europe covering the period 1990–2004. Emissions of all air pollutants fell substantially during the period 1990–2004 in the 32 EEA member countries (EEA-32), resulting in improved air quality over the region. However, ambient concentrations of particulate ...

  • Air pollution – the invisible roadside killer

    The VW emissions scandal has helped to raise awareness of the deadly threat posed by air pollution in many of our towns and cities. In the following article, Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, an instrumentation company, explains why diesel emissions will have to be lowered and how the latest monitoring technology will be an essential part of the solution. ...

  • AirQuis: A basis for air pollution forecasting

    The GIS based air quality planning system, AirQUIS, represent a perfect platform for developing numerical air quality forecasting.  AirQUIS The Air Pollution Surveillance and Information System, AirQUIS, has been developed on a Geographical Information System (GIS) platform. The main objective has been to enable direct data and information transfer and obtain a remote quality control of ...

  • Cysteine synthesis in Scorpiurum circinatum as a suitable biomarker in air pollution monitoring

    Heavy metals enter ecosystems by both natural and anthropogenic processes. An excess of metals in the environment damages plant metabolism, leading to oxidative stress in the cell. Most metal ions present in the cell are bound to low molecular mass ligands. The major types of S-containing ligands involved in metal binding are derived from cysteine. The authors show, for the first time in ...

  • Report on COST 615 Action "Database, monitoring and modelling of urban air pollution"

    COST is a framework for scientific and technical cooperation, allowing the coordination of national research on a European level. It focuses on specific subjects for which there is particular interest in the COST countries. Action 615 concentrated on the physical, chemical and ecological aspects of urban air pollution. It combined activities from 18 European countries. This paper gives an ...

  • Design methodology for background air pollution monitoring site selection in an urban area

    We present an air monitoring site selection procedure to determine the minimum number and location of monitoring stations to identify the occurrence of background concentrations greater than a reference value in an urban area. The objective technique reported here is based on the analysis of concentrations estimated using an urban dispersion model for at least one year of hourly information. As ...

  • Air monitoring of persistent organic pollutants in the Great Lakes: IADN vs. AEOLOS

    When designing a monitoring campaign, one has to consider many factors in the decision to perform a long-term synoptic monitoring program or a short-term intensive study. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. This paper compares and contrasts the information obtained from two studies conducted on the Laurentian Great Lakes. One, the Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN), is a ...

  • Controlling Air Pollutants case study

    While it's not always easy to determine what's required for compliance, new technologies can help achieve air-pollution control Selecting air-pollution control equipment can be tricky. It's not only difficult to determine which pollutants must be controlled, but also which type of equipment will best control them to required levels for any given process or facility because there is no ...

  • Some air pollution indicators in city of Tirana, Albania

    The problematic of the stable development is very wide. Recognition of ecological aspects of stable development composes a guarantee of health in ecosystems and especially for the community. The monitoring of the air that is carried out in Tirana shows that the most important polluters continue to be the total dust LGS and respiratory dust PM 10. The average quantity of lead in the monitored air ...

  • Nilu - A centre for air pollution studies in Europe

    NILU’s strong position in atmospheric European air research originated with studies of long range transport of air pollutants and acid rain in the 1970’s. This involvement is continued in the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) established in 1977, in which NILU has a central position as the Chemical Co-ordinating ...

  • Air pollution and the influence of sources on Paulinia (Brazil) and surroundings

    The air quality in the industrial area and surroundings of the city of Paulinia (state of Sao Paulo, Brazil) has been investigated by analysing the concentration of air pollutants (SO2, PM10, NO, NO2, CO and ozone) and identifying the main sources of air pollution. A mobile pollutant monitoring unit was used to collect the data at five ...
