The dust particulate matter, as Holman cited in her book, is a catalog of all kind of chemicals used in our modern style of life. Another source of dust is dust mites and microorganisms. Dust mites are microscopic insects, found in dusty places, and are the cause of allergy difficulties. In our daily life we are continually in intimate contact with many forms of airborne particulate matter. The suspended particles may be smoke from industrial plants, microorganisms, dust from volcanoes or outer space, salt particles from the sea, or ice crystals. The sun that shines into our rooms shows us that we are living in a cloud of particulate : A. J. Haagen-Smit. "Characterization of particulate matter in attic and settled dusts collected from two buildings in Budapest, Hungary", Sustainable Use of Traditional Geomaterials in Construction Practice, R. Přikryl, Á. These situations are dominated by fugitive dusts mostly associated with coarse (i.e., [micro]m) particles. Due to these conditions of ambient particulate matter in the Fresno area, the examination of human lung autopsies from this region for the distribution of carbonaceous materials and mineral dusts in the lungs is highly relevant.

levels for particulate matter in the air of urban areas of Europe. In January the EU guideline /30/EG regulating the maximum allowed concentration of fine dust particles smaller or equal to 10 μm (PM 10) became legally binding. It has been widely estimated that Germany and other EU countries might not be able to maintain acceptable. assessment of particulate matter (pm 10 & pm ) and associated health problems in different areas of cement industry, hattar, haripur. dust, metal dust, smoke, and "nuisance dusts." Why Be Concerned With Dust And Particulate? Many dusts are chemically inert, meaning that they have little or no chemical toxicity. Prolonged and repeated exposures to high levels of inert dust, however, can cause lung damage by simply. Airborne dusts can consist of particulate matter of a variety of sizes and are created by a number of different source types. Fugitive dusts arise from non-point sources, and include road dusts, agricultural dusts, dusts that arise from materials handling, construction operations, outdoor storage piles, .

Non-fugitive dust. Airborne fine particulate matter that originates from its native powders but does not escape beyond the physical boundaries of the equipment in which it is conveyed, stored, hauled or processed. Examples of “non-fugitive” dust are dust particles that are air-suspended or carried in enclosed conveyors, such as bucket and screw type, pneumatic conveying systems; silos; covered . Fugitive material has been identified as the main source of air pollution, especially total suspended particulate (TSP) and particulate matter less than 10 micrometers (PM10) in open pit mining. Fugitive particulate matter emissions were observed when the loaders and haul trucks traveled throughout the log yard. Ground level sprinkler systems have been installed at the top of the log yard and near the scale. Sprinkler systems have been established as needed on the log piles to prevent windblown particulate matter emissions. Particulate. Fugitive dusts are mostly originated from natural geological sources, such as soil, that contain heavy metals mainly in non-labile phases (e.g., sulfidic or residual) (Duong and Lee, ), whereas the metal speciation in coal combustion products tends to be more diverse, possibly due to the large variety of metal species present in coal and.
