  • Industrial Sectors

    • Metallurgy

    • Chemical

    • Still Significant Soviet Era Technology

  • 51 Compounds from 12 Industrial Facilities to Air, including

    • Metals (chromium, lead, nickel, mercury)

    • Benzene, toluene, benzo-a-pyrene

    • PM, SO2, NOx


Possible types of health effects from the 51 compounds

Possible Types of Health Effectsfrom the 51 compounds

  • Cancer

  • Developmental

  • Organ damage

Environmental health risks

Environmental Health Risks

  • What are common exposures?

    • Air

    • Water, Soil

  • Are children commonly exposed?

  • Are there well described chronic conditions that have associations with industrial emissions?


Epidemiology health risk analysis

Epidemiology & Health Risk Analysis

  • Epidemiology can provide some evidence that particular pollutants may be a problem

  • Always complexity – multiple, simultaneous exposures – difficult to analyze

  • Long lag times to disease


Potential innovative approaches reducing emissions
