The monitor is located at ...

  • Ozone and particulates most serious air quality problems in Europe

    Air quality in Europe has improved between 1990 and 2009, as emissions of most pollutants have fallen, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). But there is still a lot of room for improvement, as many EU countries are expected to exceed the emissions ceilings in 2010 for at least one pollutant. In addition, concentration levels of ground-level ozone and particulate ...

  • EPA Approves Iowa’s State Implementation Plan for Reducing Particulate Matter in Muscatine’s Air

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved Iowa’s state implementation plan (SIP) to reduce fine particle emissions in Muscatine County. The Clean Air Act requires states to develop plans to attain and maintain the national air standards in all areas of the state. These plans, known as SIPs, are developed by state and local air quality management agencies and submitted to ...

  • New wide-ranging particulate sensor

    Alphasense has launched a new version of its optical particle counter. The new OPC-N3 retains all of the advantages of its predecessor (OPC-N2) with the added benefit of automatic range switching covering PM10, PM2.5 and PM1. With an expanded measuring range (0.38 to 40 µm), the OPC-N3 is able to measure the particulate fractions of most interest; from the finest of particles up to larger ...

  • EPA Study Finds Elevated Particulate Levels in Air on Train Platforms at Chicago Union Station

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today released an air quality study that documents elevated concentrations of particulate matter (PM2.5) in ambient air on train platforms at Union Station in Chicago. The concentration of PM2.5 in air on the train platforms was 23 - 96 percent higher than concentrations recorded on nearby streets on the days that monitoring was conducted last summer. The ...

  • U.S. EPA Finds South Coast Air Basin Meets Health Standard for Coarse Particulate Matter

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to find the South Coast air basin in attainment for the coarse particulate matter standard, otherwise known as PM-10. EPA is also proposing to approve the state’s maintenance plan that demonstrates how the area will continue to achieve the standard for at least the next ten years. Today’s finding is based on PM-10 data collected ...
