  • Effects of reducing particulate emissions from vehicles

    Vehicles are an important source of particulate matter (PM) pollutants. A new study cautions that reductions in PM exhaust emissions will not necessarily be matched an equal reduction in the toxic effects of emissions on health and the environment. This is important when designing regulations to limit the ecotoxicity of exhaust PM. Incomplete combustion of fuels and the breakdown of lubricants ...

  • New particulate measurement technology enables climate change ‘quick hit’

    More accurate measurement of Black Carbon particles is now within reach of UK local authorities, air quality and climate change researchers and industry thanks to a highly-specified device, newly available via Enviro Technology.   Reducing levels of Black Carbon in the air improves human health and slows climate change. Because it is dark, Black Carbon absorbs a lot of heat from the sun and ...

  • Composition of particulate matter influences its long-term health effects

    A link between particulate matter (PM) exposure and inflammatory disease has been shown by many studies, but few have explored how the chemical composition of PM influences inflammatory processes. This study investigated the connection between different components of PM and markers of inflammation in the blood, finding that long-term exposure to transition metals, emitted by traffic and industry, ...
