EPA Indoor Air Quality Implementation Plan. ENV CHAPTER WHAT CAUSES AIR POLLUTION? Air pollution = harmful substances in the air (can be solids, liquids, gases)Most is the result of human activities but there are natural sources too (volcano, dust, pollen, spores) Primary pollutant = put directly into the air by human activity (soot from a smoker) monoxide (CO) – cars, trucks, buses, industrial processes a. interferes. The Environmental Protection Agency sets permissible levels for six common air pollutants: ozone, lead, particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.

This asbestos may be carried in the air for distances of 25 to 50 miles. In a study of asbestos air pollution from three plants in the U.S.S.R., they found that at a distance of 3 km from the plant, the dust concentration ranged from 0 to 6, ig/m 3 ; at — km it was 3,—33, ig/m 3 ; and at km it was 6, to 34, ig/m 3.
