By: Jacqueline Ammah Beryllium is valued for its strength, elasticity, lightness, and excellent thermal conductivity. Primarily used as an alloy, about a quarter of world production is in pure form; the rest is processed to form salts and oxides. Recognized as toxic in the early 1900s, with the discovery of pulmonary berylliosis, beryllium has since been associated with the development …
By: Phil Fellin In several contracts, methods were developed to determine airborne volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in indoor environments and in the personal breathing zone. Passive sampling devices (PSDs) were developed to evaluate indoor airborne concentrations and personal exposures to VOCs in the National Survey of Indoor VOCs (754 homes), and in Multi-media Exposure Pilot Studies (94 subjects).
By: Phil Fellin AirZOne staff has conducted national-scale exposure studies for benzene in gasoline stations as well as measurements at refineries and oil upgrading facilities. Ambient levels and personal exposures to benzene and other airborne compounds were determined for fuel handling facilities, domestic distribution centres and at refinery facilities.
The Impact of Emissions from Alternative Fuel vehicles on exposure of populations to hazardous airborne organics
By: Phil Fellin The impacts of alternative fuels need to be evaluated before their use becomes more widespread in Canada. Personal exposures to airborne compounds emitted by vehicles operated with diesel, gasoline, methanol- and ethanol-blended fuels have been assessed by AirZOne staff in Medicine Hat, Windsor and Toronto.
By: Phil Fellin The Arctic is a vast area comprising about 9% of the earth’s surface. The northern ecosystem is characterized by relatively low biological productivity, organisms that are long-lived and develop slowly, low species diversity but large populations and distinctive sub-ice biological communities.
By: Dr. Franco Di-Giovanni This is an information bulletin to describe the air pollution control implications of power blackouts. This has been produced for all of AirZOnes contacts in response to a number of queries from our clients.
By: Ryan Glover Ontario has two increasingly high-profile programs in place that target industry air emissions. The STAC program and the environmental SWAT team are two programs that could affect your business directly if your emission reporting (OReg 127) and air emission permits (CofAs) are not up-to-date.
BY: Jacqueline Ammah Can better air quality reduce your buildings operating costs? A proactive approach to indoor air quality (IAQ) can save you money through improved heating and cooling efficiencies; improved office environment, occupant morale, and increased employee productivity. If you are a property manager, improved IAQ will also help make your building more marketable to prospective tenants.
By: Ryan Glover As part of the ACSD seminar series work, AirZone presented its work on POPs research on November 25th, 2003 at the McTaggart-Cowan Auditorium.
