  • Carbon Black Exposure May Put Workers at Risk

    Carbon black is the general term used to describe a powdery commercial form of carbon.  It is used by industry to strengthen and color rubber and is also used to color inks, coatings, plastics and leather, and to insulate electrical equipment.  Carbon black from vegetable origins is even used as a food coloring agent.    Some employees are exposed to carbon black on a regular ...

  • Ontario’s dirty secret: black carbon and climate change

    To date, Ontario's policy responses to climate change have primarily focused on reducing carbon dioxide emissions from both the energy and transportation sectors or methane emissions from the waste and agricultural sectors. But scientific evidence points to opportunities presented by reducing emissions of short-lived climate forcers, principal among which is black carbon. Black carbon exists in ...

  • 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 ...

  • Black Carbon Emissions Cut 90% in California

    In a first-of-its kind study examining the impact black carbon has on climate in California, researchers found the state's efforts to reduce air pollution, particularly from diesel engines, has cut black carbon concentrations by 90% since 1966. This has happened without any noticeable disruption to the lives of the citizens of California, but with tremendous benefits to their health, as well as ...

  • Black Powder: A pipeline and processing problem

    A ferrous contaminant created by internal erosion and corrosion of carbon steel pipelines and operating equipment, black powder, causes many operational problems. Black powder which ranges from 100 + microns to sub-micron sizes, with the majority being ferrous (on average 80%) and silica (20%) causes many costly problems for the pipeline and processing industries. Problems such as: degrading of ...

  • Cyclists map Antwerp air pollution with on-bike monitors

    Cyclists with pollution monitors and GPS trackers attached to their bicycles have produced detailed maps of Antwerp’s air quality, as part of a recent study. Their data show that a gap of just a few metres between cycle lanes and cars significantly reduces cyclists’ risk of inhaling high levels of ultrafine particle pollution. Personal ‘mobile monitoring’ is attracting ...

  • Nepal, Bhutan to closely monitor air pollutants

    The Himalayan countries of Nepal and Bhutan will, in 2013, have two permanent air monitoring observatories set up by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) as part of a programme to reduce black carbon and other short-lived climate-forcing pollutants (SLCPs). There has been ...

  • China`s carbon goal a tough sell in coal country

    The black slabs of coal came in by the truckload through this dusty valley in northern China, slated to power cement and steel plants, heat the houses of poor farmers and even grill skewers of lamb and beef. Just a few dozen miles from the capital of Beijing, in Hebei province, coal use has long been a way of life here, with countless house-sized mounds of it dotting the forest floor. Yet the ...

  • Media attention needed for air quality monitoring

    Air quality is rarely given the media attention that it deserves, but the importance of this issue is finally beginning to gain traction. Even though air pollution is responsible for more premature deaths than obesity, alcohol and road accidents, these other problems are generally given a much higher profile. However, recent months have seen raised media and political interest in air quality and ...
