  • Deal reached on car emission standards

    Representatives of the European parliament and council of ministers have provisionally agreed next generation limits on passenger car pollution.  The law will set new Euro 5 standards for fine particles, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from 2009, and tougher Euro 6 standards for NOx only from 2014 (EED 07/11/06). In the discussions, the council basically accepted parliament’s proposed ...

  • Reducing airline emissions – can it be done?

    The aviation industry is in for an interesting year as the European Union kicked off 2008 by agreeing on a system that forces airlines flying to and from Europe into a cap and trade system for greenhouse gas emissions. The EU system proposes to cap carbon dioxide emissions for european and foreign airplanes alike, while allowing airlines to ...

  • Continuous Monitoring of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons using Automatic Thermal Desorption-Gas Chromatography

    Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of over 100 different chemicals that are known to be formed typically during incomplete combustion of organic matter at high temperature. Their major sources in the atmosphere include industrial processes, vehicle exhausts, waste incinerations, and domestic heating emissions. Due to their carcinogenic/mutagenic effects, 16 PAHs are currently ...
