A toxic cocktail of ultra-fine particles is lurking inside road tunnels in concentration levels so high they have the potential to harm drivers and passengers, a new study has found.
Australian researchers found that the ultrafine particles of laser printers form from vapors produced when the printed image is fused to the paper. Study leader Lidia Morawska of Queensland University of Technology's International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health said the researchers aimed to answer questions raised by earlier findings that almost one-third of popular laser printers emitted large numbers of ultrafine particles. The tiny particles are potentially dangerous because they...
The identity and origin of tiny, potentially hazardous particles emitted from common laser printers have been revealed by a new study at Queensland University of Technology.
