  • Why Air Quality Specialists Should Measure for Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) in Homes & Offices - Case study

    What is Sulfur Dioxide? (SO2) Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) is a highly reactive gas that is part of a larger group of sulfur oxides or SOx gases. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the largest sources of SO2 emissions are due to “fossil fuel combustion at power plants (73%) and other industrial facilities ...

  • Silver Membranes in Monitoring Respirable Crystalline Silica

    Crystalline silica, most commonly found in the form of quartz, is a basic component of the earth; it’s found in soil, sand granite, and other minerals. During many industrial processes, crystalline silica is released as particles that are 100 times smaller than beach sand.1 Due to their size, these mineral particles cannot easily be cleared by human lungs. Instead, they persist in the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...
