  • Air pollution by ozone in Europe in summer 2005

    Ground-level ozone is one of the air pollutants of most concern in Europe. Ozone pollution is produced by photochemical processes involving nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds in the lower parts of the atmosphere. Ozone levels become particularly high in regions close to high ozone precursor emissions and during summer when stagnant meteorological conditions with high insolation and ...

  • European Union Targets Health Hazards

    Last summer, the European Commission adopted the so-called European Environment and Health Strategy, which is better known as the SCALE Initiative. Its objectives are to reduce the disease burden caused by environmental factors in the European Union (EU), identify and prevent new health threats caused by these factors, and strengthen policymaking capacity in this area. A strong link The ...

  • Transboundary Pollution

    All pollutants can be transported through the aquatic environment and atmosphere, and many accumulate in downstream water bodies and their biota. The probability that pollution will cause transboundary impacts depends on the location of its source in relation to national boundaries, as well as the time it takes for a given pollutant to degrade. In general, microbial pollution is primarily a local ...

  • Performance criteria for the benchmarking of air quality model regulatory applications: the 'target' approach

    The definition of appropriate performance criteria is one of the key issues for the benchmarking of air quality models in regulatory applications. As part of the FAIRMODE benchmarking activities (Thunis et al., 2010), suitable criteria for air quality modelling in the frame of the EU air quality directive (AQD) 2008 are proposed and tested. The suggested approach builds on the target indicator ...

  • Air pollution by ozone across Europe during summer 2009

    Ozone levels during summer 2009 were as low as during summer 2008 and according to several indicators were among the lowest since reporting of Europe-wide data commenced in 1997 (1). Average temperatures in summer 2009 were generally higher than in 2008 and close to those measured in the extremely hot summer of 2003 when the highest number of exceedances in the last decade occurred. However, ...

  • Gas Chromatography: MCERTS Certification for Ambient Air Analysis on Benzene and VOCs

    Due to environmental issues, the world of gas analysis is evolving very rapidly.Governments set the rules to limit and control the environmental pollution through legislation.Volatile organic compounds (VOCs),often produced by human activities, are amongst the sources of pollution that need to be identified and quantified for safety reasons. Exposure to high concentrations of certain VOCs is ...

  • Using a calculation model to prevent serious air pollution from traffic

    The municipality of Utrecht has ten years of experience with exceeding the pollution limit values for NO2 and benzene, and offering advice for traffic plans on the effects of air pollution. Utrecht promotes prevention and integration of environmental issues in traffic plans and town planning. Utrecht has widened the use of the Dutch air pollution model for traffic (CAR) to prevent new exceeding ...

  • National Air Pollutant Emission Trends, 1900-1998

     Executive Summary What information is presented in this report? This report presents the United States (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest estimates of national emissions for criteria air pollutants: carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOX ), volatile organic compounds (VOC), sulfur dioxide (SO2 ), particulate matter (PM) less than 10 ...

  • Air pollution by ozone across Europe during summer 2011

    Ozone is the main product of complex photochemical processes in the lower atmosphere, involving NOX and VOCs as precursors. Ozone is a strong photochemical oxidant. In elevated concentrations it causes serious health problems and damage to materials and vegetation such as agricultural crops. The main sectors that emit ozone precursors are road transport, power and heat generation plants, ...

  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...

  • New modular options for AQMesh air quality monitoring systems

    The AQMesh small sensor air quality monitoring system already offers flexibility of monitoring location – through independent power and communications – as well as high data quality and traceability. Now the platform is even more flexible offering up to 20 different data channels. The wide range of sensors, including gases such as NO2, particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5 and PM10) wind and ...

  • The Benefits of an Integrated Air and Water Pollution Control Partner

    Although there has been substantial progress during the past several decades in reducing pollution, the EPA, other federal agencies and local governments continue to add and revise requirements and standards, making compliance a challenge for the industrial sector. These companies also face increasing public pressure not just to meet but to exceed pollution control standards, as studies continue ...

  • Air pollution by ozone across Europe during summer 2012

    Despite efforts to mitigate ozone pollution, the number of exceedances of EU ground-level ozone concentration standards for protecting human health (Directive 2008/50/EC) remained at serious levels during summer 2012 (1). In the summer of 2012, the threshold of 120 micrograms per cubic metre of air (ìg/m3) maximum daily eight-hour mean was exceeded on more than 25 days again across large ...

  • Monitoring - Pollution Prevention Guidelines

    Introduction Pollution Prevention Guidelines to provide technical advice and guidance to staff and consultants involved in pollution-related projects. The guidelines represent state-of-the-art thinking on how to reduce pollution emissions from the production process. In many cases, the guidelines provide numerical targets for reducing pollution, as well as maximum ...

  • Finding Air Pollution Solutions by Tracking Particulates and Gases

    An estimated 95% of people live in areas where outdoor fine particulate concentrations exceed the air quality guideline of 10 µg/m3 set by the World Health Organization. Almost 60% of people live in areas where fine particulate matter exceeds even the least stringent WHO interim air quality target of 35 µg/m3. These figures are presented in the State of Global Air 2018 project, and ...
