Particulate Matter Projects and Reports



Particulate matter, also known as particle pollution, is made up of a number of components, including a mixture of acids, metals, petroleum byproducts, diesel soot, dust particles and soil. There are two types of particulate matter EPA is concerned about.  These are PM10 (coarse) and PM2.5 (fine).  Exposures to both are harmful to human health.
