  • Ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe

    Air pollution is caused by the emission to the atmosphere of certain substances which, alone or through chemical reaction, can damage human health and/or the environment. Air pollution is both a local and a transboundary problem as emissions from one country can travel large distances in the atmosphere and cause adverse effects in other countries. The single pollutants causing most damage to ...

  • Capturing carbon straight from the air: what are the costs?

    Carbon capture from power plants has gained much attention as a means to decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). A recent study assesses an alternative method that directly removes carbon dioxide from the air. The findings indicate that this method is comparable in costs to the mitigation costs estimated by the IPCC and the Stern report. Targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions have been ...

  • Air quality specialist calls for black carbon standard

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, believes that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Black Carbon (BC) is a term describing the fine particles that are produced as the result of incomplete combustion of fuels and ...
