Airborne pollutants


Air pollutants are all materials that (regardless of their origin and condition) reach into the air to such an extent that they can damage humans and their environment or cause material damage.

Pollutants in the air may be natural and artificial (anthropogenic) sources. Anthropogenic pollutants come from three main areas: transport, energy production and industry. Incineration of fossil fuels is the most important source in these sectors. Natural air pollutants include volcanoes (sulfur oxides and powders), forest fires (carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and powders), wind storms (dust), live plants (hydrocarbons, pollen), decaying plants (methane , hydrogen sulphide), soil (viruses, dust) and sea (salt).

The causes and consequences of air pollution


It has been shown that air pollution has an indirect and direct impact on people's immune system, making it much easier to get sick in such an environment, but air pollution also affects the flora of the human body alongside the human body. So if we see a sick, yellowish, or growing tree in a big city, they are most likely to be infected with air pollution.

The direct impact of air pollution has been demonstrated by science, which is why smog clouds or dense smoke smoke, for example. Dense powdery dust usually develops in large cities or industrial areas, in a windy weather and causes extremely unhealthy, proven respiratory diseases, and indirectly forms genetic alterations and other disorders.

Electric vehicles will help the shift toward EU's green transport future


A large scale roll-out of electric cars on European roads would result in significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions and lower levels of certain air pollutants, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) assessment released today.


However, widespread use of such vehicles would pose challenges for Europe’s power grid in meeting increased electricity demand.


The EEA briefing 'Electric vehicles and the energy sector — impacts on Europe's future emissions' looks at the impact of different scenarios that take into account the increased use of electric cars and their effect on the European Union's (EU) energy system, and on emissions of greenhouse gases and selected air pollutants.

European and American research team to assess the impact of particulate pollution


The University of Rochester in New York University, a team of experienced researchers tested the hypothesis that adverse effects of urban air occurring ultrafine particles is health.
The research focused on the smallest, specifically due to the atmosphere present in the ultrafine particles on health, not the larger coarse particles.

The research team took part in atmospheric scientists and aerosol physicists, epidemiologists, lung, cardiovascular and specialist physicians, pharmacists, biologists.
Epidemiological, colloquially infectious diseases ranging from dealing studies have shown a consistent correlation between the ultra-fine particulate matter and respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.
