Health Problems Caused by Air Pollution

uv-curing-lamp-suppliers

Most air pollution is caused by industries and puts the people who live in and around those areas at an increased risk for many different diseases.  Air pollution impacts the youngest, oldest and poorest and contributes to diseases such as lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis.  Other problems affecting people who live in areas with high levels of air pollution include increased fatigue, headaches, nausea and wheezing.

Air pollution is measured by the levels of particulate matter or PM in the air, and the more elevated the PM levels are, the more dangerous it is to the health of the people living in the area.  Scientists define PM2.5 as fine, tiny particles or droplets in the air that are two and one half microns (there are approximately 25,000 microns in an inch) or less in width.  On days when the levels of daily PM2.5 are elevated, it can reduce visibility and cause the air to appear hazy.  Many cities post warnings when air pollution levels are elevated as it can be especially unhealthy for people with certain health conditions.  Higher levels of PM2.5 often occur when there is little or no wind.

PM10 (particulate matter 10 micrometers or less in diameter) and PM2.5 include pollutants such as sulfate, nitrates and black carbon, which can be responsible for many diseases.  There is a fairly recent study that explains why PM2.5 may be more harmful than PM10. “Physically, this makes sense – smaller the particle, more of a probability that it will go deeper into the lungs and harm us.”

One of the worst places for industrial air pollution is in China.  In a recent study reported on by the BBC, the U.S. embassy in Beijing recorded the daily average air quality index (AQI) from 2008 to 2015.  Based on PM2.5, they reported readings that indicated 49% of the time the air quality was “very unhealthy,” and 4% of the time it was “hazardous.”  The study also indicated that the air quality was “good” 2% of the time.

WHO Reports Air Pollution Levels Rising in Poor Cities

post 102

Dr. Carlos Dora of the World Health Organization (WHO) states that, “It is crucial for city and national governments to make urban air quality a health and development priority.” She adds, “When air quality improves, health costs from air pollution-related diseases shrink, worker productivity expands and life expectancy grows. Reducing air pollution also brings an added climate bonus, which can become a part of countries’ commitments to the climate treaty.”  However in the same report they explain that air pollution levels are rising in many of the world’s poorest cities.

In the large study from 2008-2013, the WHO compared a total of 795 cities in 67 countries for levels of small and fine particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5).  PM10 and PM2.5 include pollutants such as sulfate, nitrates and black carbon that can increase the risk of disease.

The organization says that despite improvements around the globe that urban air pollution levels have increased by 8%.  They also report that 80% of people living in urban areas with air quality monitored are exposed to air quality levels that exceed WHO limits, and low-income cities are the worst.   In fact 98% of low and middle income cities with over 100,000 inhabitants do not meet WHO air quality guidelines and generally include cities in the Eastern Mediterranean and South-East Asia Regions.  Many of those cities exceed WHO limits by 5 to 10 times.  For high-income cities, only 56% of them do not meet the guidelines and include cities in Europe, the U.S., and the Western Pacific Region.

Some of the ways that air quality can be improved are to reduce industrial smokestack emissions and to increase the use of renewable power sources.  Other things that can be done is to increase and support public transportation as well as to encourage industries and businesses to recycle and adopt more sustainable “green” practices.

Developing Solutions to Reduce Industrial Pollution

post-124

It is a fact that industrial pollution impacts the well being and health of the every person on the planet, and thus is a worldwide concern. Pollution from industries includes releasing toxins into the air as well as contaminating drinking water and the soil.  Companies such as LightSources and LightTech are designing and manufacturing cost-effective, safe solutions to address these issues.  However despite the best efforts of such companies, global industrial pollution is still widespread and will take many years to bring under control.

Smoke and greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere from industrial air pollution is believed to be a contributing factor in climate change.  One of the challenges of moving the planet toward a more environmentally-friendly direction is the fact that many companies are still using outdated technology to combat pollution.   Often there is a lack of resources available, especially for small companies or those in poorer countries, to make the capital investment needed for effective pollution control.  Another problem that contributes to industrial pollution is the lack of standards and regulations in many countries, or if the laws do exist, the lack of enforcement. Furthermore, many industries use large amounts of water in their manufacturing processes that is contaminated with harmful chemicals.  Without systems in place such as LightSources and LightTech’s UVC germicidal water purification systems to deal with the waste water, it is often released into the environment still containing hazardous waste and other by-products.

At LightSources and LightTech, we are committed to designing, engineering and manufacturing UV lighting solutions that are intended to deal with industrial air, water and odor pollution in a safe and cost-effective method.  Our UV light applications are used for sewage treatment, purification of municipal and domestic drinking water, food processing and protection (irradiation), water reclamation, HVAC air sterilization, and odor control.  We invite you to browse our extensive website to learn more about all of our innovative UV lighting solutions that are more affordable than you may think.

LightSources and its affiliated companies – LCD Lighting, Voltarc, LightTech, and Cerlux represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today.  Our products are used world-wide in a multitude of applications and industries such as our UV air treatment systems that offer patent-protected, OEM-oriented solutions.

Industrial Air Pollution Causes Many Problems

post-125

Not only do LightSources and LightTech manufacture products that help to make the world a better place, but we also implement environmentally-friendly practices in-house with our own production processes.  Supporting social programs, developing environmentally-friendly technologies, and implementing green business practices are an important part of the LightSources group’s business philosophy.

We are proud to manufacturer a line of cost-effective products designed to help reduce industrial pollution, which is the one of the biggest sources of environmental contamination.  In fact the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that, “air pollution levels rose 14 percent from 1990 to 2008.”  Industrial air pollution is caused by dust, fly ash, smoke, fog, soot and fumes as well as gaseous pollutants such as carbon monoxide, methane, and nitrogen oxide.

Most scientists believe that industrial air pollution is one of the leading causes of climate change, and that the effects are much farther reaching than just air quality.  Greenhouse gas emissions can pollute soil and damage plants as well as travel a long distance from the source.  When pollutants from factories combine with the moisture in the air, it is called “acid rain.”  The U.S. Geological Survey reports that one study showed, “air pollution caused the pH of rainfall to drop to 4.2 in the Washington, D.C. area.”  For clarification, unpolluted rain has a pH of 5.6.”

At the LightSources group, we are committed to continually improving our manufacturing processes to help protect the environment such as using measured mercury pellets for controlled mercury dosages as well as lead-free phosphors.  In addition we design energy efficient products such as our proprietary LongLife™ UV germicidal lamps, tanning lamps and TriLight Max lighting lamps that require fewer replacements.  We also recycle as much material as possible, and LightTech even operates in-house recycling equipment.  See our website to learn more cost-effective ways to help improve the environment.

LightSources and its affiliated companies are regarded as innovative, high-tech designers and manufacturers in the specialty lamp manufacturing industry. From prototype to finished product, we offer unmatched flexibility and manufacturing turnaround. Please contact us to learn more about our cost-effective industrial UV air systems that help companies to run cleaner.
