COMPONENTS OF AIR POLLUTION. SOLIDS AND CARBON MONOXIDE

KOMPONENTEN DER LUFTVERUNREINIGUNG. FESTSTOFFE UND KOHLENMONOXID

SOME OF THE RESULTS OF TWO STUDIES COMMISSIONED BY THE COUNCIL OF EXPERTS ON ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS ARE PRESENTED. A STUDY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF TOTAL EMISSIONS OF DUST IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY BETWEEN 1965 AND 1974 SHOWS THAT THESE EMISSIONS HAVE BEEN REDUCED BY MORE THAN HALF. IN 1974 THE HIGHEST PROPORTION (37%) WAS CAUSED BY LARGE FURNACES. THE REDUCTION IN EMISSIONS CAME ABOUT FOR VARIOUS REASONS, WHICH ARE DESCRIBED. ANNUAL CARBON MONOXIDE EMISSION IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC WAS REDUCED BY ABOUT 12% OVER THE PERIOD OF THE REPORT. THE HIGHEST PROPORTION OF THIS WAS CAUSED BY HOUSEHOLDS AND SMALL USERS SUCH AS TRANSPORT. CO EMISSION FROM INDUSTRY HAS REMAINED ALMOST CONSTANT. THE GREATEST REDUCTION WAS IN THE ROCKS AND SOILS INDUSTRY. THE TREND TOWARDS A FURTHER REDUCTION IN CO EMISSION FROM TRANSPORT IS APPARENT.
