  • 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 ...

  • A Method of Assessing Air Toxics Concentrations in Urban Areas Using Mobile Platform Measurements

    ABSTRACTThe objective of this paper is to demonstrate an approach to characterize the spatial variability in ambient air concentrations using mobile platform measurements. This approach may be useful for air toxics assessments in Environmental Justice applications, epidemiological studies, and environmental health risk assessments. In this study, we developed and applied a method to characterize ...

  • Update on Federal Air and GHG Regulations Affecting Landfills

    EPA’s recent regulatory changes are expected to alter the way landfills are regulated for the foreseeable future with a potential to add additional compliance costs for the industry.  The air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) regulatory framework at the federal level is currently in a state of flux with respect to landfills. The landfill industry awaits the issuance of a revised ...

  • The invisible fine dust

    Air is lifeblood. Daily we inhale approximately 15.000 liter. Still, the air contains invisible pollutants, which vary in its composition and concentration depending on the location. Especially the respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm (PM 2.5) were considered to be particularly dangerous. According to a current study conducted by the Max Planck Society, ...
