Construction nanoparticles

Construction of buildings is a part of both developing and developed society. Some aspects, such as particle emissions, are yet not understood but are important to reduce exposure to operatives working on sites or living nearby. We started researching this topic about 3 years ago and we recently got yet another paper published on this topic titled as "The exposure to coarse, fine and ultrafine particle emissions from concrete mixing, drilling and cutting activities". The article was published in Journal of Hazardous Materials. Full details about this research work can be accessed by clicking here. These work is a step towards establishing number and mass emission inventories for particle exposure during construction activities.
