New figures show the UK government failed to reduce illegal levels of air pollution in the 18 months after a court ordered it to clean up the air.

The public can be sensitised to the extent of air pollution

Experimental evidence and preliminary clinical evidence suggest that environmental air pollution adversely effects kidney health. Previous work has examined the association between fine particulate matter and risk of kidney disease; however, the association between ambient coarse particulate matter (PM10; ≤10 µm in aerodynamic diameter), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and carbon monoxide (CO) and risk of incident chronic kidney disease, chronic kidney disease progression, and end-stage renal disease is not clear.

This document is a summary of a report, published by Greenpeace Germany, bringing together research generated from many studies demonstrating there are short-term and long-term health problems associated with exposure to nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and nitric oxide (NO).

MUMBAI: Air quality in Mumbai has shown steady deterioration over the years but the latest findings indicate a mixed picture-extent of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is down and so is percentage o

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned on Sunday against a swift abandonment of diesel cars after a series of emissions scandals, saying the fuel is still needed if climate change targets are to be

German markets regulator BaFin said it was probing whether Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) and Daimler (DAIGn.DE) had violated disclosure rules, following media reports that both carmakers made use of whist

This technical report presents the evidence that was used to develop and assess the UK Air Quality Plan for tackling nitrogen dioxide. It is important to note that whilst this national assessment describes one route to compliance with NO2 limit values it is unlikely to exactly reflect the eventual, locally developed plans.

India wanted to cap toxic emissions from power plants by December. It’s now discovering that target is at least 6 years from its reach.

The traffic 'rush hour' extends from 8am to 8pm on arterial roads of Delhi, with average speeds not exceeding 30 kmph 92% of the time, reveals a Centre for Science and Environment study that analys
