  • Spatial and temporal differences of Particulate Matter in Berlin

    Particulate Matter (PM) is still a problem in urban areas. The concentration of PM in Berlin and its variability is the subject of this study based on data of six official PM10 monitoring stations and a measuring program carried out by the Institute of Geography covering PM2.5 and coarse PM measurements at 19 sites, distinguished between traffic related and urban background sites. The impact of ...

  • Total solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • Sources of particulate matter: emission profile of biomass burning

    Biomass burning is an important source of atmospheric Particulate Matter (PM) in Brazil: the burning of forests in the northwest and of sugar cane plantations in the southeast are important examples. The objective of this work is the measurement of the PM emission profile of burning of sugar cane and other characteristic vegetative burning in the region of Sao Carlos-SP/Brazil. Samples of PM10 ...

  • TOC analyser improves lab efficiency

    Leading instrumentation company HACH LANGE is helping a number of key customers save valuable time and costs with its new IL550 TOC-TN analyser. TOC analysis is vitally important in applications ranging from power generation, wastewater, drinking water, surface water and ultrapure water, to agricultural soils, contaminated land and food. HACH LANGE analysers therefore offer a range of options ...


  • Variations in mass concentrations of airborne particulate matter over tropical urban environment

    Particulate matter (PM) is an important component of the air pollution that has adverse health effects, ecosystem damage and degraded visibility. We analysed the seasonal variations in PM loading from ground-based measurements of PM1.0 and PM2.5, Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) Black Carbon (BC) aerosol over Hyderabad, India during January-June, 2006. The PM concentrations showed relatively higher ...

  • A study of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in airborne particulate matter in central Taiwan

    Two sampling sites in central Taiwan, at Hungkuang University (HKU) and Tunghai University (THU), were chosen to contrast the content of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the atmosphere from November 2000 to April 2001. PAHs that arise from incomplete combustion of organic materials, especially fossil fuels, are the major toxic pollutants in central Taiwan. This study aimed to analyse ...

  • Assessing the impact of particulate matter sources in the Milan urban area

    The Chemical Mass Balance (CMB) receptor model of the US-EPA was applied to PM10 data obtained during a field study performed in the Milan urban area, including daily average concentrations, element and ion concentrations. Two chemical fingerprints were estimated to characterise total traffic emissions and diesel engine exhaust emissions. Four main source groups were identified: road traffic, ...

  • Atmospheric particulate matter in the city of Sao Carlos/SP, Brazil

    This paper presents experimental data and source apportionment simulations on particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5) in the atmosphere of Sao Carlos/SP, Brazil. Both a Hi-vol sampler equipped with glass fibre filters and a Dichotomous sampler with nucleopore filters were used. The collected material was analysed for total carbon, using a thermometric method, and for ...

  • Short-term variations in ambient particulates and their sources in Taichung, Taiwan

    Ambient particulate measurements were carried out using TE-PUF sampling and a Universal Air Sampler between 8 March and 25 April 2001 at Taichung. Samples were collected every 6 hours beginning at 0100 LST (Local Standard Time) each day at two sites, one at a university campus and the other at a roadside. Chemical species (Cl-, NO3-, ...

  • Gas analysers support management of Swindon fire

    The capability to convene a multi-agency Air Quality Cell (AQC) was established in England in 2009 following the Buncefield Oil Storage Depot incident. A review of this event identified the need to rapidly co-ordinate the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of air quality data in major incidents. Arrangements have been made in England to bring together experts from the Environment Agency ...

  • Emissions analyser helps manage power station

    A multiparameter emissions monitor at Thetford power station is being used to demonstrate to the Environment Agency that the plant is performing within the conditions of its environmental permit. However, the data from the analyser, which was supplied by Milton Keynes based Quantitech, also performs a vitally important role in helping to manage the plant. “Individual gas readings are ...

  • Time series analysis for the sulphur dioxide and particulate matter concentrations in the Aegean Region of Turkey

    Air pollution has temporal and spatial variability. Time series analysis is commonly used to evolution of air pollutants in time. The sulphur dioxide (SO2) and particulate matter (PM10) concentrations in the cities of the Aegean Region for the period of 1990–2009 have been modelled by using autoregressive (AR) and autoregressive moving ...

  • Relationship between Particulate Matter measured by Optical Particle Counter and Mortality in Seoul, Korea, during 2001

    This study was performed to examine the relationship between particulate matter exposure and mortality in Seoul, Korea, during the year 2001. Particulate matter data were collected using an optical particle counter (OPC) and national monitoring stations in Seoul. The size-resolved aerosol number concentrations of particles 0.325 μm in diameter and mass concentrations of PM10 ...

  • Particulate matter from natural sources and related reporting under the EU Air Quality Directive in 2008 and 2009

    Much of the air pollution that damages human health and the environment today is the result of human activities. But natural sources also emitt air pollutants, contributing to the exposure of European citizens and ecosystems to bad air quality — and potentially undermining EU Member State efforts to meet the air quality standards set out in EU legislation. Recognising the challenge ...

  • Analyses of human exposure to urban air quality in a children population

    PM levels of less than 2.5 μm and 10 μm and their effect on children health are studied and it is proposed a ventilation system to avoid outdoor air pollution inlet. Results reveal a positive correlation between indoor and outdoor PM concentrations, the importance of indoor sources and outdoor activity, and building permeability relevance. PM size confirms to be also important in matter of ...

  • Potential bioavailability of phosphorus in citrus orchard soil to Microcystis aeruginosa

    Algal blooms in eutrophic water bodies are controlled by inputs of phosphorus (P) as the growth-limiting nutrient. Runoff particulate P associated with soil from fields often predominates among P fractions. Here, an algal bioassay to investigate the potential bioavailability of particulate P in soil collected from a citrus orchard was conducted. Microcystis aeruginosa was cultured in medium ...
