Description:
Black carbon (or soot) particles are formed from the incomplete combustion of biomass and fossil fuels. It is a powerful climate forcer and dangerous air pollutant. BC and co pollutants make up the majority of PM2.5 air pollution which is the leading environmental cause of poor health and premature deaths. Indoor and outdoor PM2.5 air pollution are estimated to have caused over 3.5 and 3.2 million premature deaths annually.
