  • The nexus of environmental degradation and technology innovation and
           adoption: an experience from dragon
    • Abstract: Abstract The Chinese economy traces an outstanding economics growth and development by utilizing its natural resources and cheap labor force along with environmental problems. China is focusing on policies related to technology for people’s well-being. Despite this, about 2 million Chinese are going to die yearly due to air pollution regarding the Global Air Quality Report of the World Health Organization. The marginal impact of technology innovation and adoption is inaudible in the Chinese pollution equation. Therefore, this study analysis spotlights on nexuses of technology innovation and adoption CO2 emission for the Chinese economy, respectively. The marginal impacts infer that technology innovation and trade openness are mitigating the CO2 emission, whereas technology adoption and GDP enrich the CO2 emission in the Chinese context. Lag periods of technology innovation and adoption also have significant linkage with CO2 emission. Hence, an increase in technology innovation will help lessen the CO2 emission. The introduction of green energy and efficient ICT equipment is needed to tackle environmental degradation. The policy-makers can put a carbon tax on inefficient industrial processes and products for sustainable development.

  • Independent influences of extreme atmospheric pressure on
           hypertension-related ER visits
    • Abstract: Abstract Frequent emergency room (ER) visits occur for acute symptoms of hypertension or related complications in Beijing, China. Among the meteorological variables, atmospheric pressure directly relates to weather conditions and is hardly affected by artificial factors. In the studies of weather conditions and hypertension-related risks, atmospheric pressure is rarely found in literatures. Based on records of ER visit related to hypertension from three major hospitals in Beijing, from 2008 to 2012, the daily maximum (Pmax) and minimum (Pmin) atmospheric pressures were investigated in this study to identify the influences of air pressure on ER visits. Advanced time series models were utilized in quantifying their associations. In addition, major air pollutants and other meteorological variables including temperature, solar duration, and humidity were incorporated in the multivariate models to reveal the independent association between atmospheric pressure and ER visits. The results indicated the following: 1. The number of ER visits positively correlates with all atmospheric pressure metrics in both bivariate and partial correlation analyses. 2. The estimated relative risk (RR) corresponding to 1 hPa change in Pmax indicated a significant effect (Pmax = 1029 hPa, RR = 1.107, 95% CIs: 1.034-1.185) from high Pmax on short lag terms. RR for males and the elders grew prominently at lag 1 d, whereas females responded to Pmax at lag 4 d. 3. The middle-aged group (45–65 years) was threatened by extremely low Pmin with one day lag. 4. As for young (< 45 years) hypertensive patients, no effect from atmospheric pressure was identified. This study may provide new evidence that extreme atmospheric pressure is an independent inducer of hypertension-related symptoms or complications.

  • Application of Wheeler–Jonas equation and relative breakthrough time
           (RBT) in activated carbon beds of respirator gas filters
    • Abstract: Abstract In the use of activated carbon beds as adsorbents for various types of organic vapors in respirator gas filters, the estimation methods of breakthrough curves and breakthrough time and their applicable range of weight of the beds have been of significant concern. In this study, we prepared several types of activated carbon beds having weights of 35, 80, and 258 g that were preconditioned by equilibration with moisture at different relative humidities (RH = 40 – 70%) and a constant temperature of 293 K. Then, we measured breakthrough curves of several types of organic vapors of the beds at these RHs and temperature and investigated estimation using a theoretical formula, Wheeler–Jonas equation, and relative breakthrough time (RBT) using cyclohexane as a standard. The Wheeler–Jonas equation showed good agreement with breakthrough curves in this study, and the measured RBTs showed good agreement with the reference data by Tanaka et al., with a small number of exceptions. As a result, we confirmed that the Wheeler–Jonas equation and RBT are effectively applicable to organic vapor breakthrough data of activated carbon beds having weight even in the region of > 35 g.

  • Predictive analysis of CO 2 emissions and the role of environmental
           technology, energy use and economic output: evidence from emerging
           economies
    • Abstract: Abstract In 2019. the BICS (Brazil, India, China and South Africa) group remained not only one of the largest global CO2 emitter, but also most of the projected carbon emissions in the future and highly vulnerable to negative impacts of climate are associated with them. However, the recent literature finds number of studies having contradictory numbers about present and future carbon emissions in the BICS. It does not only affect the existing environmental regulations in the BICS but also mislead the future policy framework for the climate change. Thus, this study develops comprehensive forecasting model using Grey system theory approach for policy analysis. The variables (i.e. CO2 emissions, environmental related technological change, fossil fuel and renewable energy consumption, and economic output) are used to predict CO2 emissions. The results find that the emissions intensity will continue to rise in BICS region. However, the significant progress at environmental technology front can reduce the CO2 emissions intensity while achieving the economic growth targets. The results also find that the fossil fuels will remain the significant source of energy mix in BICS countries. The use of renewable energy is expected to increase during the projection period. The results are useful for BICS countries in shaping future environmental policy.

  • Network analysis: a novel approach to identify PM 2.5 hotspots and their
           spatio-temporal impact on air quality in Santiago de Chile
    • Abstract: Abstract Air pollution, particularly PM2.5 particulate matter, is a significant issue in Santiago, the capital of Chile. Santiago’s pollution problem is exacerbated by its unique geographic location nestled against the Andes mountain range in the central valley of Chile. This paper uses network models that were developed primarily to analyze systemic risk in the financial system to identify those locations in the city that are most important for explaining PM2.5 levels. High average concentrations are associated with both systemically important locations and those that are most sensitive to pollution arriving from other areas. A detailed picture of the links across the city can help direct official efforts to combat pollution.

  • Exposure to air pollutants among cyclists: a comparison of different
           cycling routes in Perth, Western Australia
    • Abstract: Abstract Cycling is often promoted as a means of reducing vehicular congestion, greenhouse gases, noise and air pollutant emissions in urban areas. It is also endorsed as a healthy means of transportation in terms of reducing the risk of developing a range of physical and psychological conditions. However, people might not be aware of the negative health impacts of cycling near heavy traffic. This study aimed to compare personal exposure with particulate air pollution among cyclists commuting in Perth, Western Australia. The study involved 122 number of cyclists riding bicycles in four different routes: two routes within community areas (Route 1 and Route 2) and two routes near freeways (Route 3 and Route 4). The participants were males and females aged between 20 and 55 years with the selection criteria including non-smokers who cycle at least 150 km/week—ideally along one of the four study routes. Personal exposure of respirable particulate air pollution during cycling at the high and low level of exertions (self-perceived) were assessed. Ambient concentrations of selected air pollutants were also measured at each cycling route. We found that Route 3 appeared to be the most polluted route and concentrations of nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide exceeded the Australian standards. This study concluded that personal exposure to respirable particles was influenced by the speed, time of cycling and seasonal variation.

  • The impacts of COVID-19 measures on global environment and fertility rate:
           double coincidence
    • Abstract: Abstract The study aims to examine the effects of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) measures on global environment and fertility rate by using the data of 1980 to 2019. The results show that communicable diseases including COVID-19 measures decrease carbon emissions and increase the chances of fertility rates in an account of city-wide lockdown. The knowledge spillover substantially decreases carbon emissions, while high energy demand increases carbon emissions. Poverty incidence increases fertility rate in the short-run; however, in the long-run, the result only supported with vulnerable employment and food prices that lead to increase fertility rates worldwide. The study concludes that besides some high negative externalities associated with COVID-19 pandemic in the form of increasing death tolls and rising healthcare costs, the global world should have to know how to direct high mass carbon emissions and population growth through acceptance of preventive measures, which would be helpful to contain coronavirus pandemic at a global scale.

  • Numerical study of thermal influence to pollutant dispersion in the
           idealized urban street road
    • Abstract: Abstract In this paper, a computational study of air pollution in idealization urban canyons road for various temperature regimes was investigated. To solve this problem, the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations were used. Moreover, different turbulent models were used to close this system of equations. To test the numerical algorithm and the mathematical model, the test case was performed. The received computational data for different turbulent models were compared with measurement and computational values. After validating the computational and mathematical model, the main problem was characterized: the pollutant emissions process between houses using different grass barrier types (continuous and discontinuous) for different temperature regimes. The computational data were compared with the obtained computational values using various grass barriers types. In the various studies, it was revealed that the presence of barriers along the roads reduces the harmful concentrations in the air. So when using a herbal barrier height of 10 cm, the concentration value drops to a cross-section of x = 5 cm more than 1.5 times compared with no barriers, however, taking into account the temperature effect (TH = 305 K), the concentration value additionally decreases almost 2 times. Increasing the temperature for the roadside with barrier reduces dispersion and deposition of pollutants.

  • Predicting the non-carcinogenic health hazards associated with emissions
           from developing coal-fired power plants in Payra, Bangladesh
    • Abstract: Abstract Owing to the depletion of natural gas reserves and economic constraints of imported oil, Bangladesh plans on shifting to an electricity mix dominated by coal. Among a number of planned coal-fired power plants, five power plants each with 1320-MW generation capacity are expected to be installed by 2030 in areas within 5-km radius of Payra, situated in Patuakhali district, by 2030. This study involved simulation of pollutant concentration and evaluation of health risks due to emission from these power plants. Four pollutants, SO2, NOx, PM2.5, and PM10, were assessed for health risks under two scenarios: (a) scenario I, operation of Payra phase I and phase II power plants (expected by 2022); and (b) scenario II, cumulative operation of all 5 power plants. An air dispersion model has been used to investigate the pollutant dispersion and ground-level concentration at receptor grids over a 30 × 30-km model domain for a 1-year period. Hazard quotients (HQ) of the selected pollutants were estimated at 10 sensitive receptors, which revealed that long-term HQ were well below the safe limits; however, short-term NOx exposure might pose serious threat to the residents. To depict the cumulative hazardous footprint of the pollutants, a hazard impact map has been created to delineate the potential high-risk areas.

  • Volatile chemical emissions from car air fresheners
    • Abstract: Abstract Air fresheners, used in a variety of indoor environments, emit a range of volatile chemicals, including some classified as hazardous. However, little is known about the emissions from air fresheners designed for use in cars. This study investigates the volatile organic compounds emitted from car air fresheners, identifies potentially hazardous compounds, compares emissions between so-called natural and regular versions, and assesses whether ingredients are disclosed. Using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, 12 car air fresheners were analyzed for their volatile emissions. Air freshener types included car vent clips, wraps, hanging ornaments, cans, and spray. Results reveal that the air fresheners collectively emitted 546 VOCs with 30 VOCs classified as potentially hazardous. All air freshener types emitted one or more potentially hazardous compounds. Comparing regular air fresheners with so-called natural or green air fresheners, no significant difference was found in the emissions of hazardous compounds. Notably, all products emitted at least one VOC classified as potentially hazardous. Among all of the 546 compounds emitted, fewer than 2% of all VOCs, and none of the potentially hazardous VOCs, were disclosed on any product label or safety data sheet. This study reveals that car air fresheners can be a source of exposure to numerous volatile compounds, including potentially hazardous VOCs, most of which are undisclosed. Of particular concern for human exposure is the small and enclosed breathing space within vehicles, as well as involuntary exposure in commercial vehicles such as taxi cabs and rideshares.

  • A spatial econometric empirical research on the impact of industrial
           agglomeration on haze pollution in China
    • Abstract: Abstract Based on statistical data on 30 provincial administrative regions in China from 2000 to 2016, this paper conducts an empirical study of the impact of industrial agglomeration on haze pollution using the spatial Dubin model (SDM), spatial lag model (SLM), and spatial error model (SEM). The findings are as follows: (1) Industrial agglomeration can effectively reduce the degree of haze pollution. (2) Haze pollution has an inverted U-shaped relationship with economic development and population agglomeration. (3) The secondary industry has a positive correlation with haze pollution, while the tertiary industry can reduce haze pollution but not in an obvious manner. (4) The level of innovation and urbanization can help to reduce haze pollution, and the level of economic opening up and carbon dioxide emissions can exacerbate haze pollution. (5) Due to the insufficient commercialization of scientific and technological achievements, investment in science and technology is not obviously effective in preventing and controlling haze pollution. The relationship between environmental regulation and haze pollution is still unclear due to regional differences and the varied effectiveness of law enforcement. The study suggests that the government should guide industrial agglomeration in a reasonable manner, improve joint prevention and control across regions, and strengthen environmental regulation to prevent and control haze pollution.

  • Transport CO 2 emissions, drivers, and mitigation: an empirical
           investigation in India
    • Abstract: Abstract India has one of the world’s largest transport networks, with the dominant share being road transportation. India’s transport sector consumes oil products for more than 95% of its energy needs and is a significant contributor to environmental deterioration in urban areas. Therefore, we examine the driving factors of transport CO2 emissions in India, incorporating road transport energy, economic growth, industrialization, urbanization, oil prices, and road infrastructure, over the period 1980 to 2015. The findings indicate that economic growth and road sector energy use cause an upsurge in transport emissions. Likewise, industrialization and road infrastructure stimulate transport emissions. Urbanization mitigates transport emissions, while oil prices have no influence on transport emissions. One-way causality is shown from economic growth, urbanization, and road sector energy to transport emissions. Finally, suitable policy implications are proposed to reduce transport CO2 emissions for a sustainable environment.

  • Environmental pollution and COVID-19 outbreak: insights from Germany
    • Abstract: Abstract The impact of environmental pollutants and climate indicators on the outbreak of COVID-19 has gained considerable attention in the recent literature. However, specific investigation of industrial economies like Germany is not available. This provides us motivation to examine the association between environmental pollutants, climate indicators and the COVID-19 cases, recoveries, and deaths in Germany using daily data from February 24, 2020, to July 02, 2020. The correlation analysis and wavelet transform coherence (WTC) approach are the analytical tools, which are used to explore the association between variables included in the study. Our findings indicate that PM2.5, O3, and NO2 have a significant relationship with the outbreak of COVID-19. In addition, temperature is the only significant climate indicator which has significant correlation with the spread of COVID-19. Finally, PM10, humidity, and environmental quality index have a significant relationship only with the active cases from COVID-19 pandemic. Our findings conclude that Germany’s successful response to COVID-19 is attributed to environmental legislation and the medical care system, which oversaw significant overhaul after the SARS and MERS outbreaks. The current study implicates that other industrial economies, especially European economies, that are still facing COVID-19 outbreak can follow the German model for pandemic response.

  • Measurement of size-fractionated atmospheric particulate matter and
           associated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in Mumbai, India, and their
           dry deposition fluxes
    • Abstract: Abstract Size-fractionated particulate matter (PM), associated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and their dry deposition fluxes were measured in a coastal urban environment of Mumbai, India. PM samples were collected using a variable configuration cascade impactor (VCCI) with 11 size fractionation stages. Dry deposition samples were collected using a round-bottomed PVC tray. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used for the identification and quantification of PAHs in samples. PM were observed to range between 58 and 130 μg m−3, with a mean dry deposition flux of 1298 mg m−2 day−1. Observed PM concentrations during the sampling period were found to be well above the WHO Air Quality Guidelines. A strong linear correlation was observed between the gravitational settling velocities and estimated dry deposition velocities for PM. Concentrations of PAHs associated with PM were observed to be in the range 101–145 ng m−3 while their dry deposition fluxes varied from 1008 to 1160 ng m−2 month−1. The molecular diagnostic ratios (MDRs) indicated that sources of PAHs in the study area were petrogenic as well as non-traffic. The dry deposition velocities calculated for PAHs were in the order of 10−4 cm s−1 to 10−3 cm s−1 in the entire size range.

  • Spatial heterogeneity of factors influencing transportation CO 2 emissions
           in Chinese cities: based on geographically weighted regression model
    • Abstract: Abstract Based on the 2015 transportation CO2 emissions and economic and social data for the 286 cities in China, exploratory spatial data analysis (ESDA) method and a geographically weighted regression (GWR) model were used to analyze the spatial distribution characteristics of transportation CO2 emissions and their influencing factors. The results showed that the CO2 emissions from urban transportation in China featured significant spatial agglomeration. The high emission areas were mainly concentrated in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Chengdu, Nanjing, and other regional core cities, while the low emission areas were mainly concentrated in the cities of Gansu, Guizhou, Yunnan, and other underdeveloped provinces. Considering the overall evolution of the factors affecting transportation CO2 emissions, private car ownership, technological innovation, and industrial structure correlated positively with transportation CO2 emissions. Population density, urbanization rate, per capita urban road area, and transportation structure could significantly inhibit transportation CO2 emissions. The impact of per capita GDP, public transportation, and environmental regulation on transportation CO2 emissions was insignificant. From the perspective of spatial heterogeneity, there were significant regional differences in the impact of various factors on CO2 emissions. Private car ownership, technological innovation capacity, and per capita GDP all had a positive impact on transportation CO2 emissions. Urbanization rate, urban road area per capita, and transportation structure all had a negative impact on transportation CO2 emissions. Population density, industrial structure, public transportation, and environmental regulation all had a two-way impact on transportation CO2 emissions in different cities.

  • Air pollution and its health impacts in Malaysia: a review
    • Abstract: Abstract Air pollution is strongly tied to climate change. Industrialization and fossil fuel combustion are the main contributors leading to climate change, also being significant sources of air pollution. Malaysia is a developing country with a focus on industrialization. The preference of using private cars is a common practice in Malaysia, resulting in the after-effects of haze and transboundary air pollution. Hence, air pollution has become a severe issue in Malaysia in recent times. Exposure to air pollutants such as ozone and airborne particles is associated with increases in hospital admissions and mortality. For the past few years, the focus of the research is moving towards air quality and the impacts of air pollution on health in Malaysia. In this study, we establish the definition of air pollution, the motivation to study it, and its impacts and sources of air pollution and climate change. We discuss the air quality monitoring system in Malaysia and compare Malaysian ambient air quality standards with global standards. We also look comprehensively on the health impacts of air pollution globally and in the Malaysian context. We discuss where the health impact studies in Malaysia are lacking and what are the gaps in the research. The role of the Malaysian government concerning air pollution and its impacts is discussed. Lastly, we look into the future work and research opportunities with a focus on engineering, estimation, predictive models and lack of research projects.

  • Gauging the air quality of New York: a non-linear Nexus between COVID-19
           and nitrogen dioxide emission
    • Abstract: Abstract The primary objective of the study is to analyse the relationship between COVID-19 and nitrogen dioxide in New York City during the global pandemic. Notably, the study has investigated the direct influence of lockdown circumstances (due to COVID-19) and plunge in the population of New York on its environmental contamination. The study utilized the Non-Linear Autoregressive Distributed Lag (NARDL) model to ascertain the asymmetric impact of COVID-19 on the environmental quality of the USA. The results reveal that lockdown has played a significant role in the environmental quality of the USA. Notably, an escalation in the registered cases of COVID-19 has a meaningful and indirect relationship with environmental pollution in the UAS. Besides, as the lockdown state goes normal, it results in an explosion in the environmental pollution in the USA. Also, deaths due to COVID-19 substantively improve the environmental quality in the short-term period as well as in the long-term period.

  • Study of environmental dynamic through optimized potential variables:
           renewable energy
    • Abstract: Abstract This article investigates the effects of sustainable power source, Foreign Direct Investment, International exchange, and Tourism on carbon outflow in five developed countries (i.e., Singapore, Qatar, Malaysia, South Korea, and Japan) and five developing countries (i.e., Pakistan, Bangladesh, Srilanka, China, and Indonesia) of Asia for the period 2000 to 2020 by utilizing System GMM, FMOLS, and DOLS models. The GMM framework shows that the outside direct speculation and the travel industry increase the discharge, while the renewable vitality utilization and universal exchange diminish the carbon outflow in technologically advanced nations. Sustainable power source utilization, the travel industry, and worldwide trade increase the emanation, while remote direct speculation decreases carbon outflow in developed countries. In contrast, the travel industry, financial development, and exchange transparency diminish CO2 outflows in developed nations. FDI, travel industry, and worldwide exchange are the significant drivers to build carbon discharge, while sustainable power source utilization and financial development fundamentally announce carbon outflows in developing nations. This investigation has significant proposals that the natural quality could be upgraded by expanding sustainable power source utilization, pull in FDI, advancing the travel industry arrangements, and exchange receptiveness.

  • Impact of lockdown on air quality in India during COVID-19 pandemic
    • Abstract: Abstract First time in India, total lockdown was announced on 22 March 2020 to stop the spread of COVID-19 and the lockdown was extended for 21 days on 24 March 2020 in the first phase. During the total lockdown, most of the sources for poor air quality were stopped in India. In this paper, we present an analysis of air quality (particulate matter-PM2.5, Air Quality Index, and tropospheric NO2) over India using ground and satellite observations. A pronounced decline in PM2.5 and AQI (Air Quality Index) is observed over Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Chennai and also a declining trend was observed in tropospheric NO2 concentration during the lockdown period in 2020 compared with the same period in the year 2019. During the total lockdown period, the air quality has improved significantly which provides an important information to the cities’ administration to develop rules and regulations on how they can improve air quality.

  • Spatial distribution of magnetic material in urban road dust classified by
           land use and type of road in San Luis Potosí, Mexico
    • Abstract: Abstract Industrial and vehicular emissions of particles cause multiple damages to human health due to concentration, size, and composition. These emissions contain magnetic particles; therefore, low-cost properties allow tracking and monitoring them. This study is aimed at identifying the primary sources of magnetic material in 100 samples of urban road dust from San Luis Potosí, Mexico, analyzing the influence of land use and the type of road on these particles. Magnetic susceptibility (χlf) and isothermal remanent magnetization at 0.7 T (IRM0.7T) were determined, as well as the iron and manganese content using X-ray fluorescence. The distribution of particles was examined by land use and type of road through geostatistical maps and variance analysis. The results showed that the iron and manganese content, χlf, and IRM0.7T were positively correlated, indicating a possible common origin. The primary sources identified were the iron smelter and laminator in the industrial park. Urban land use influenced the content of iron, manganese, and magnetic material in urban road dust. The land uses with the more significant transformation (industrial and mixed) presented the highest values of iron, manganese, χlf, and IRM0.7T. On the other hand, vehicular traffic was indirectly assessed through the type of road, influencing the magnetic signal of urban road dust and finding the highest signals in primary and secondary roads. Then, the magnetic properties allowed the tracking and monitoring of magnetic particles from industrial and vehicle emissions.
