  • `Not all particles are equal`, Air Monitors

    Recently, the Prime Minister’s car was covered by a thin layer of Saharan dust and air quality was suddenly a lead item in the national news. The dust itself does not pose a serious hazard to health in comparison with the finer particles (from diesel engines for example) that travel deep into the lungs, but Jim Mills, MD of Air Monitors, believes that the media attention that this event ...

  • Californians dying prematurely from particles in vehicle exhaust

    Every year, up to 24,000 Californians die prematurely because they breathe fine particle pollution over a long period of time, according to research presented this week to the California Air Resources Board. A majority of these deaths occur in highly populated areas around the state, including the South Coast, the San Joaquin Valley and the San Francisco Bay air basins.  All combustion ...

  • Clean-up removes 29 `significant` particles from seabed

    More than a hundred fragments of spent nuclear fuel were removed from the seabed in the latest phase of work to clean up and shut down the former nuclear research site at Dounreay. The particles were detected and retrieved by a remotely-operated vehicle that systematically scanned an area of seabed equivalent in size to more than 10 football pitches. ...

  • Finer particles give more useful air quality data, says new research

    New air quality research indicates that measuring ultra-fine particles can distinguish between particles generated through human activities, such as combustion, and larger particles, which are more likely to arise from mechanical processes and natural sources. The smallest air particles are from combustion sources such as vehicles and power plants, and easily enter the body. However, air quality ...

  • China: Hong Kong: water resources equipment

    Hong Kong relies entirely on imported water and wastewater treatment products and technologies to meet its needs. In January 2008, the Hong Kong Government (HKG) allocated funds to build the US$8 million disinfection facilities under the Harbor Area Treatment Scheme (HATS) Stage 2A. This portion of Stage 2A has a completion date in 2009. Another US$1.02 billion will be spent before 2014 on the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring how aerosols affect climate change

    Monitoring aerosols is of growing interest especially as current research has indicated that fine particulates are linked to not only adverse health effects but also climate change. It has been known for some time that fine particulate matter (PM2.5) has been widely linked to adverse health effects such as asthma. Approximately 70% of particulate mass generated by, for example, bush fires is less ...
