  • 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 ...

  • Harmful polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons removed from soil using wastewater sludge and polyacrylamide

    Wastewater sludge is widely used to remove toxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from soil, and yet the mechanisms underlying this process remain unclear. A new study reveals the extent of PAH removal following different treatments, and could provide a useful resource for those looking to diminish the effects that these pollutants have both on people and on the environment. PAHs have been ...

  • Airborne polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon levels falling faster in cities than rural areas

    Levels of airborne polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are falling at urban and rural sites in Europe and North America, according to recent research. These results contribute to growing evidence demonstrating that the legislation to reduce these harmful emissions has been successful. Concentrations of PAHs in urban areas were highest, the researchers found, but they were also declining at ...

  • Treating old railway sleepers as hazardous waste

    Wooden railway sleepers, or crossties, soaked in creosote are used in railway tracks across Europe. However, wooden sleepers are gradually being removed and disposed of, to be replaced with concrete ones. New research suggests that many of the wooden sleepers exceed the critical creosote limit set by the European Union and when they are disposed of they should be treated as hazardous waste. ...
