  • PM10 and Their Effect in Respiratory Diseases of Population in Mexicali, Mexico

    Summary Constant exposure to air contaminants may cause of respiratory illnesses and trigger cardiovascular problems. In the last years, norms have been proposed to reducing air pollution, nevertheless, diseases and death cases are still occurring. It seems that there is a relation between excessive levels of PM10 and the increment of acute respiratory infections (ARI). Mexican and American ...


  • Estimation of number of deaths associated with exposure to excess ambient PM10 air pollution

    The respirable particle matter (PM10) concentration in urban areas has been a chronic cause concern and principal reason for increased morbidity rate among resident population. The present study aimed at estimating a discrete event like mortality rate associated and attributable to excess particulate matter pollution in the Kathmandu Valley area. The Government of Nepal conducts air monitoring of ...

  • Office Printers Emit Ultra fine particle pollution

    We’ve heard quite a bit about particulate matter PM10s and PM2.5s as components of air pollution that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Recent research papers are highlighting the dangers of ultra fine particles (UFPs), which have a diameter of less than 0.1 micrometres (or 100 nanometres). By contrast, the diameters of particulate pollution from PM10s and ...

  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Trends of lead in suspended particulate matter in Zagreb air

    Monitoring of lead in Total Suspended Particulate Matter (TSPM) started in Zagreb, Croatia in 1971 at three measuring sites. Monitoring of lead concentrations in PM10 started in 1999. This paper presents the trends of annual mean values for lead concentrations in TSPM and in PM10 particles. The obtained data showed a decreasing trend of lead in TSPM, especially during the last ten years when the ...

  • Personal exposure to particulate air pollution in transport microenvironments

    Personal measurements of exposure to particulate air pollution (PM10, PM2.5, PM1) were simultaneously madeduring walking and in-car journeys on two suburban routes in Northampton, UK, during the winter of 1999/2000.Comparisons were made between concentrations found in each transport mode by particle fraction, between differentparticle fractions by transport mode, and between transport ...

  • Black Carbon – the elephant in the room!

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, in this article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, will demonstrate that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Air Monitors has supplied most of the UK's ambient monitoring network, but Jim will explain why the ...

  • Lisbon air quality forecast using statistical methods

    Ozone and particulate matter levels in Southern European countries are particularly high, exceeding the established limit values, and the information and alert thresholds (in the case of ozone). Therefore, it is relevant to develop a good prediction methodology for the concentrations of these pollutants. Statistical models based on Multiple Regression (MR) analysis and classification and ...

  • Air pollution in Europe 1990-2004

    Overall picture This report analyses and presents changes in air pollutant emissions and their possible health or ecosystem impacts in Europe covering the period 1990–2004. Emissions of all air pollutants fell substantially during the period 1990–2004 in the 32 EEA member countries (EEA-32), resulting in improved air quality over the region. However, ambient concentrations of particulate ...

  • Applied comprehensive NO2 and particulate matter dispersion modelling for Switzerland

    This paper presents the NO2 and Particulate Matter (PM) dispersion modelling for the whole of Switzerland. Air quality maps are computed for the year 2000 and future years. Future developments like the EURO-4 legislation on motor vehicles are taken into account. For all major source groups (road traffic, off-road traffic, industry, households, etc.), separate countrywide emission inventories with ...

  • A Special Issue of the Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association on the Particulate Matter Supersites

    This special issue of the Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association contains 15 peer-reviewed scientific papers from the specialty conference Particulate Matter Supersites Program and Related Studies, which was held in February 2005 in Atlanta, GA. Other peer-reviewed papers will appear in companion issues of the Journal of Geophysical Research, Aerosol Science and Technology, and ...

  • 2013: a ‘perfect storm’ in air quality

    As many countries fail to meet air quality targets and large numbers of premature deaths still result from air pollution, Jim Mills, a particulate monitoring specialist and Managing Director of Air Monitors, explains why 2013 will be a pivotal year. In November 2011 Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment, expressed his determination to make 2013 the ‘Year of ...

  • Contribution of natural sources to air pollution levels in the EU - a technical basis for the development of guidance for the Member States

    Exceedences of air quality limit values represent breaches of Community law which can have significant legal consequences for the Member States. For some existing limit values, such as those in directive 1999/30/EC (1st Daughter Directive), an exceedence which is caused by particular natural sources can be ignored for the purposes of ensuring compliance with Community law. For example, Article ...


  • Closures of mine a new challenge for Romania

    AbstractThe mining activity is one of the oldest activity in Romania, dating from the year 100 B.C. The gold and silver ores represented one of the riches of our country. In time the economic content of metals diminuend, and the ore mines become non profitable. Due to this situation the best option of the State was the closure and ecological rehabilitation of the mines.The steps for the ...


  • Air uality in IVF Labs

    Since the birth of the first baby from in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) in 1978, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) has grown in importance as techniques and success rates have continued to improve. Put simply, IVF involves mixing sperm and egg in a lab to create an embryo which is then replaced in a woman's womb to develop normally with success being measured in terms ...

  • Minimising Risks to Air Quality and Regulatory Compliance With Total Filter Management

    It has been shown in recent studies that as much as 25% of the total site operating budget (excluding raw material costs) for a typical medium-large dosage-form manufacturing facility will be spent on compliance measures for internal quality systems and external regulatory activities. (1) Market realities indicate that the pharmaceutical companies will need to address the overall cost of ...
