  • A comparison of nearby incremental ground level and in plant concentrations of air pollutants emitted from electronics facilities

    Air dispersion modeling by was recently conducted to predict the incremental ground level and in-plant concentrations of toxic organic chemicals due to stack and fugitive emissions from Sama Jaya Free Industrial Zone (SJFIZ), Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. Simulations of organic air pollutants emitted from industrial facilities in SJFIZ from years 1996 to 2001 were carried out in September 2004 by ...

  • Next, the air car?

    Vehicles account for 26% of the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions, and 51% of the average household’s daily CO2 output (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/climate.shtml), according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. So, clearly fuel economy is critical to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.Big car manufacturers, like GM, Ford and Toyota, have seen ...

  • Managing multimedia pollution for a multimedia world

    Due to climate-change-induced melting of essential sea ice habitat and a lack of effective regulatory mechanisms to mitigate further losses, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is now considering the polar bear for listing as a threatened species. If we could place ourselves for a moment in one potential future of the polar bear, similarly stranded in the Arctic Ocean on the last tenuous piece of ...

  • Evaluation of dustfall in the air of yazd

    Humar can not live without breathing air. Humar needs air even more than water and food. Average amount of air breathing by an adult is 15 kg in 24 hours while water and food using by adult is 2.5 and 1.5 kg. To consider how important of air, it is enough to know that people can continue to live without food for 5 weeks and without water for 5 days but without air can not continue to live more ...

  • Characterisation of pollutant sources in Istanbul with PM10 and EU directives

    Air pollution is globally significant because pollutants not only affect their source region, but also through transport they can affect other regions. The purpose of this study is to show the stand point of Turkey for EU directives. Sampling days that exceed PM10 limit values of EU PM10 restrictions are chosen as episode days for this research (PM10 > 150 μg/m³). Two test cases representative of ...

  • Determination of Compliance with UK and EU Air Quality Objectives From High Resolution Pollutant Concentration Maps Calculated Using ADMS-Urban.

    The main features and functionality of the urban air quality version of ADMS (ADMS-Urban) have been presented at previous Harmonisation Workshops. The system has now been set up and applied to air quality management, decision support and air quality forecasting in a number of major cities in Europe and beyond, including London. Key recent developments of the system include a regional chemistry ...

  • Air uality in IVF Labs

    Since the birth of the first baby from in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) in 1978, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) has grown in importance as techniques and success rates have continued to improve. Put simply, IVF involves mixing sperm and egg in a lab to create an embryo which is then replaced in a woman's womb to develop normally with success being measured in terms ...

  • Environmental Profile of the Air Transportation Industry

    Introduction The EPA's Office of Compliance has developed a series of profiles or notebooks containing information on selected major industries. These notebooks, which focus on key indicators that holistically present air, water, and land pollutant release data, have been thoroughly reviewed by experts from both inside and outside the EPA. What will you find in this ...

  • Improving air quality in the office

    Most people spend the main part of their day indoors – in the home, school or office environment. Focusing specifically on improving air quality in the office and workplace setting, we are looking at the key potential sources of pollution which impact upon air quality and employees’ health. Examples include, outdoor air (particularly relevant if the workplace is next to a busy road), ...

  • Office Printers Emit Ultra fine particle pollution

    We’ve heard quite a bit about particulate matter PM10s and PM2.5s as components of air pollution that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Recent research papers are highlighting the dangers of ultra fine particles (UFPs), which have a diameter of less than 0.1 micrometres (or 100 nanometres). By contrast, the diameters of particulate pollution from PM10s and ...
