  • Air quality impact of diesel ‘severely underestimated’

    Hydrocarbons are precursors to hazardous air pollutants including ozone and particulate matter. Hydrocarbons from diesel make up over 50% of all hydrocarbons in the air in London, a new study has found. The authors also estimate that they contribute up to half of total ozone production potential in London, and say future air quality control strategies must focus more on these pollutants. Around ...

  • Questions and Answers on the new European air quality directive

     Questions and Answers on the new directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe 1) What is the issue? 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 ...

  • SIMAIR: a new internet tool to evaluate local air quality

    A new computer-based tool has been developed in Sweden to help local authorities evaluate air pollution at street level. It allows the results to be compared easily with EU air quality standards.

It can assess concentration levels for four pollutants: fine particles (PM10), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ...

  • Careful urban tree planting and pruning needed to reduce trapping of air pollution

    Careful planting and pruning is needed to ensure that air pollution in tree-lined streets is minimised, new research suggests. While planting trees in urban areas can have many benefits, such as enhancing biodiversity, trees can trap particulate matter pollution, say the study’s authors. Particulate matter (PM) air pollution is a component of vehicle exhaust emissions and PM2.5 (particles ...

  • Even moderate air pollution can raise stroke risks
