  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The ‘ins and outs’ of air quality monitoring

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidance on ‘Air pollution - outdoor air quality and health.’ In the following article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors Ltd, explains why there will need to be more funding for monitoring if the mitigation measures mentioned in the guidance are to be implemented effectively. Jim also ...

  • Modest Growth for Air Pollution Control Market

    The Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 created a wave of optimism in the air pollution control (APC) business. The subsequent decade, however, resulted in backwash of disappointment for APC companies as the market for stationary source equipment declined from 1-4% per year from 1993-1998. Growth returned to the APC market, however, with 1999 and 2000 characterized as 'good' years by the Institute ...

  • Selecting the Right Air Quality Monitor

    There are many types of air quality monitors available, but which one is the best choice for measuring gaseous air pollutant concentrations? There are two classes of such air quality monitors: sampling monitors and in-situ monitors (“in-situ” = “in the original position”). Sampling monitors utilises a manifold through which the air to be analysed is pumped. A small air ...

  • Development of a GIS-based urban air quality modelling system for transport-related pollution

    In recent years motor vehicles have become the dominant source of air pollution in metropolitan areas. Hence, the assessment of transport-related air quality is of major concern to policymakers and municipal planners. This paper describes an urban air quality modelling system for evaluating the environmental effects of transport related air pollution. A preliminary evaluation of the model has ...

  • Fighting air pollution: Shanghai looks to Norway

    A delegation from Shanghai Meteorological Bureau visited the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) Thursday 6th. April. Like many other fast growing megacities in Asia, Shanghai is facing huge environmental challenges. The visit was a first step in establishing a future cooperation between the two ...

  • California Air Resources Board (CARB) places higher restrictions on air pollution

    As part of the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) the Air Resources Board (ARB) has approved an early action measure to reduce high-global warming potential (GWP) greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions by establishing new legislation and defining requirements related to improved monitoring of AC/HVAC systems, enforcement of regulations, reporting of refrigerant usage, and recovery, ...

  • Air quality monitoring and assessment programme for Botswana

    An Air Pollution Monitoring and Surveillance Program (BAQMAP) is being developed, installed and tested for Botswana. The project is funded partly by NORAD and partly by the Botswana Government.  The project is undertaken in a co-operation between Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) in Norway and Department of Mines (DoM) in Botswana. NILU shall provide professional assistance in the ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Air pollution forecast in Portugal: a demand from the new air quality framework directive

    This work aims at developing and validating a numerical air quality operational forecasting system that will be applied over Portugal. The CHIMERE model was chosen for the chemistry-transport simulation using the meteorological parameters supplied by the MM5 mesoscale meteorological model, forced by the AVN/NCEP global forecasts. An experiment of 48-hour real-time forecast simulations was ...

  • Double benefit of monitoring Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

    It is a difficult balance to save money and energy yet maintain a comfortable and healthy indoor air environment. A logical solution to controlling indoor air pollution is good ventilation coupled with IAQ monitoring using gas sensors. This can ensure healthy indoor air as well as a more efficient HVAC system.  Typical IAQ investigation and examination consists of taking single-point ...
