  • Contribution of Natural Sources to PM Levels in Europe

    Air pollution levels in the EU depend to a considerable extent on anthropogenic emissions; however, in some areas large amounts of PM can be emitted from various sources of natural origin or transported from regions outside the EU.

  • Sources of PCDDs/PCDFs In Cement Kiln Emissions

    Abstract This paper presents data on the source of PCDDs/PCDFs in cement plant stack emissions, demonstrating that these emissions are not necessarily all created by the process. The data potentially demonstrates that some of the PCDDs/PCDFs in the emissions are pre-existing dioxins and furans that are vaporized out of the kiln raw feed. This calls into question the assumption that PCDD/PCDF ...
