  • Visualize this - Clean Air

    Soot. Smog. Gray. Around the world, that’s what millions of people live in, every day. Air pollution disrupts our environment. From dangerous emission levels to hazardous chemicals, the average person in the world is losing 1.8 years of their life expectancy to dirty air that violates the World Health Organization’s guidelines. Studies show that ...

  • Chemical Air Pollution in the Clinical Research Environment

    There has been a revolution in awareness of chemical air pollution in research laboratories. I could tell you several 'horror stories' of casual exposure to mercury vapour, benzene and chromic acid (the ultimate glassware cleaning agent) among innocent biomedical PhD students (including myself) in the 1970s. But researchers in hospitals, and other laboratories can never afford to be complacent ...

  • Air dispersion modelling for individual exposure studies

    The concentration fluctuations of a dispersing hazardous gaseous pollutant in the atmospheric boundary layer, and the hazard associated with short–term concentration levels, demonstrate the necessity of estimating the magnitude of these fluctuations using predicting models. To predict and estimate the maximum expected dosage and the exposure time within which the dosage exceeds certain health ...

  • Most Common Indoor Air Pollutants

    Is the indoor air you breathe healthy? According to the World Health Organization, 40% of all buildings pose a serious health hazard due to indoor air pollution. The EPA calls indoor air pollution the #1 pollution problem in America. What Are The Most Common Indoor Air Pollutants? While there are a number of factors that can create air quality problems in a building, here are ...

  • `Facing the New Emission Standards for Hydrochloric Acid Pickling,` presented at the SUR

    Introduction Under the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), U.S. EPA is required to regulate sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Primarily, HAP emissions are regulated through National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs), which are codified under Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 63. NESHAPs address HAP emissions from a particular process, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Assessment of material deterioration in Bulgaria owing to air pollution

    Atmospheric pollution is an important factor in material deterioration, including degradation of systems used for material protection. Owing to pollution, the lifetime of technological products is shortened. Buildings and other structures, as well as objects of cultural heritage exposed to the atmosphere, deteriorate more rapidly. The resulting physicochemical and economic damage can be ...

  • Evaluation and analysis of household hazardous substances in Kuwait

    Many of the products we use for housework, gardening, home improvement, or car maintenance contain hazardous materials that endanger our health as well as pollute the environment. Inappropriate use, storage, and disposal of hazardous household products can cause injuries, poisoning, and air pollution. The objectives of this paper were to determine the type and the quantity of hazardous materials ...

  • PFC Pollution in the office environment

    A new study suggests that exposure to chemical pollution could be a particular problem in the office environment. Researchers in the United States have found a link between Polyfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) in the air of a number of offices and their presence in the blood of the people working there. Polyfluorinated Compounds are water and stain-resistant and they have been used for many ...

  • Facing the New Emission Standards for Hydrochloric Acid Pickling

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a new regulation to reduce hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from facilities that pickle carbon steel using hydrochloric acid (HCl) solution as well as from associated HCl regeneration plants. This regulation, the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Steel Pickling – HCl Process Facilities and HCl Acid ...

  • Refinery MACT II Compliance – Are We There Yet?

    Refinery MACT II, 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart UUU, was published in Federal Register on April 12, 2002 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This rule, as a subpart of the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), controls hazardous air pollutants from catalytic cracking units (CCU), catalytic reforming unit (CRU), sulfur recovery units (SRU), and bypass lines ...

  • Hazardous waste cleans up its act - Case Study

    Instead of landfill, incineration is being used increasingly in the UK to dispose of waste while recovering energy. The processes for controlling air pollution at these facilities creates a hazardous waste that represents approximately 3.5% of the original waste input by mass. Around 170,000 tonnes of Air Pollution Control (APC) residue, the hazardous by-product of incineration, is created every ...

  • Public health risk assessment: an Egyptian study of secondary lead smelting and associated risks

    The purpose of a public health risk assessment is to provide a baseline assessment of the on- and off-site human health risks that can be associated with past activities from secondary smelting of lead. We apply risk assessment methods to the operations of the Awadalla Secondary Lead Smelter (ASLS), which result in soil, dust, air and water pollution. A baseline study is a snapshot of the risks ...

  • Fireworks air pollution in Slovenia

    Over the 'Christmas–New Year' period 12/2010–01/2011, PM10 air pollution measurements on most of the automatic measuring stations in Slovenia reached extreme values of up to 300 µg/m³. Analysis shows a very close correlation with the timings of the fireworks displays in the areas. This paper shows the other side of this cultural enjoyment - the effect on PM10 air pollution. As the correlation ...

  • Science and policy challenges of atmospheric modelling in consideration of health effects

    Next generation atmospheric models are required to provide a realistic assessment of different types of chronic and acute environmental conditions and forecast the consequences on population health. These tasks were usually carried out with epidemiological studies, which are not adequate to indicate health effects. Therefore, models should be capable to carry out hazard identification, ...
