LEAD OUT OF PETROL?

LOOD UIT DE BENZINE?

Every decrease in the amount of lead in petrol must be welcomed. In the Netherlands the amount of lead in petrol was decreased from 0.75 g pb per liter to 0.49 g pb per liter in 1978. In 1986 the maximum permitted amount will be 0.15 g pb per liter. This decrease can be realised easily, even if the costs per liter increase. The exhaust fumes of cars contain nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and aldehydes which have effects on the environment and also on man. This article discusses mainly the medical aspects of air pollution by lead in petrol which will be favourably influenced by cleaner exhaust fumes. (TRRL)
