ISO16890 – A standard that tells you more about particles that are harmful to your health
Airborne particles can be in solid or liquid form. Essentially, fine particles are dust. In the case of air pollution, this dust is often produced by an unfinished combustion, which generate what we call ‘unburnt elements’.
The particles can be of natural origins, like from volcanic eruptions, or “human”, such as from heating, road traffic, in-dustrial processes, etc. These fine particles penetrate deep into the lungs and can cause inflammation and health pro-blems in people with heart and lung disease. Also, they can carry carcinogenic compounds absorbed on their surface into the lungs.
“Currently, particulate matter and ozone pose a severe health risk in many cities in both developed and developing countries.A quantitative relationship can be established between the level of pollution and certain health conditions (increased mortality or morbidity). This provides valuable insights into the health gains that can be expected if air pollution is re-duced.” Air quality guidelines For Europe.
