  • The cost of air pollution impacts on health

    Researchers have developed a new model to assess the health-related external costs arising from air pollution from ten major emission sectors. Applying the model at national and Europe-wide levels, they suggested that the major contributors to costs were industrial power production, agriculture, road traffic and domestic combustion. In recent years, policy action to reduce emissions has targeted ...

  • New BIBUS-SECOH Air Pumps

    Our diaphragm blowers are ideally suited for applications, where minimum energy consumption, delivery of absolutely oil-free air, near silent operation and a minimum of simple maintenance are requested. The operating principle is very simple and efficient: Activated electromagnets put the magnet holder at the same frequency as that of the power supply (50Hz or 60Hz) into oscillation movements. ...

  • Air quality linked to wellbeing at a regional level in Europe

    The impact of air quality on public welfare is important to policy development. However, it is difficult to make a clear link between the two when air pollution tends to be reported at a country level and wellbeing is an individual measure. A new study takes a step further towards linking the two by analysing regional level air quality across the EU and relating it to levels of life satisfaction. ...

  • Emissions trading also good for air, water and land

    An independent report finds the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme will produce important benefits for air, water and land, as well as for the climate.  There will also be some challenges to manage. Climate Change Minister David Parker says he welcomes the report, prepared by a team led by the Cawthron Institute.  The report identifies the high-level environmental impacts of the ...

  • Evaluating the impact of air quality measures is essential

    Recent research has investigated the effectiveness of air quality management at the regional level in Italy and found that some of the most commonly adopted measures do not always produce the highest emissions reductions. Italian air quality legislation was reformed in 1999 in order to comply with the 1996 European Air Quality Framework Directive1. At the time, the 20 Italian administrative ...

  • Nanocoating on buildings releases potentially toxic particles to the air

    Weathering and abrasion are reported to cause titanium dioxide nanoparticles to escape from a self-cleaning coating for buildings. These particles may be toxic to humans and wildlife. The researchers have developed three indicators from the test results to help predict levels of nanoparticle release from these coatings. Photocatalytic coatings containing nano-sized particles of titanium dioxide ...

  • Recession contributes to air pollutant emissions decrease in 2009

    Emissions of almost all main air pollutants fell across the EU-27 in 2009, according to the latest annual European Union air pollutant emission inventory report compiled by the European Environment Agency (EEA).
