Soot. Smog. Gray.
Around the world, that’s what millions of people live in, every day.
Air pollution disrupts our environment. From dangerous emission levels to hazardous chemicals, the average person in the world is losing 1.8 years of their life expectancy to dirty air that violates the World Health Organization’s guidelines. Studies show that exposure to air pollutants has been linked to suppressed lung growth, asthma, heart disease and the onset of diabetes.
A recent article by The Evening Standard vividly shows what pollution actually looks like in several major cities across the globe. Using data from 2018, these photos show hazardous chemicals produced by vehicle exhaust once the initial cloud of smoke has dissolved.
Pollution, especially air pollution, affects everyone. At CECO Environmental we have made it our mission to remove the many pollutants out of the air by providing safer, cleaner and more efficient solutions for the air we all breathe.
Now that you see it, it’s time to take action.
