Particulate Emission from Natural Gas Burning Home Appliances Is Assessed in Environmental Engineering Science Journal
Italian researchers measured the particulate matter produced by natural gas domestic burners to assess risk of exposure to organic emissions, which have been associated with increased mortality due to deposition in the lungs, brain, and circulatory system.
“These critical research findings provide important insights regarding the environmental health consequences associated with common place natural gas burners found in many homes,” according to
