This new report by ICCT assesses global progress in 2019 toward reducing black carbon emissions from diesel on-road light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles.

Particle transfer across the placenta has been suggested but to date, no direct evidence in real-life, human context exists. Here we report the presence of black carbon (BC) particles as part of combustion-derived particulate matter in human placentae using white-light generation under femtosecond pulsed illumination.

Exposure to higher levels of indoor air pollution in India is associated with an increased risk of hypertension among women, according to a study.

Ever since the electronic revolution, electronic devices have become an indispensable part of common man’s life.

The objective of this study is to present the results of a model developed by Microsol with regards to cooking in rural households between 2018 and 2030, with information from three countries: Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

Much of Asia has significant potential to achieve cleaner air and control near-term climate change by integrating short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) into their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). This paper analysed NDCs from Northeast, Southeast ans South Asia to determine which countries are capitalising on that potential.

The Federal Executive Council of Ministers approved in May 2019 Nigeria’s National Action Plan to reduce short-lived climate pollutants.

Early and ambitious action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) is essential to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. SLCPs include methane, hydrofluorocarbons, black carbon, and tropospheric ozone.

DEHRADUN: A recent study by the Dehradun-based Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology (WIHG) has found that black carbon travelling from Mediterranean countries during the western disturbance (which

This document is the annual European Union (EU) emission inventory report under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP Convention) (UNECE, 1979).
