EU-research: New Tools for Monitoring Airborne Molecular Contamination in Clean Rooms

The MetAMC-project

There is a clear demand from the industry for continuous measurement and control of airborne molecular contamination (AMC). Therefore, a three year project (MetAMC) was started in May 2013 within the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)*. The project is coordinated by MIKES and it aims to measure AMCs at trace levels in clean room environments by mainly laser methods. It encompasses a multitude of national metrology institutes* and other stakeholders.

Special air filter blocks small particles called UFPs from getting inside cars

While taking in the scenery during long road trips, passengers also may be taking in potentially harmful ultrafine particles (UFPs) that come into the car through outdoor air vents. Closing the vents reduces UFPs, but causes exhaled carbon dioxide to build up.

Air pollution increases risk for hypertension in pregnant women

UF researchers compared birth data with Environmental Protection Agency estimates of air pollution, finding that heavy exposure to four air pollutants led to a significantly increased risk for developing a high blood pressure disorder during pregnancy. The research was published in the January issue of the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.

Tracking air pollution aids policy makers

Last week, a team of scientists, which included Argonne’s David Streets, a senior energy and environmental policy scientist, published research showing that several different air pollutants from China reach the shores of the western United States.
