Emissions from coal- and oil-fired power stations may produce higher volumes of dangerous air-polluting particles than previously thought, according to expert government advisers. The Atmospheric Particles Expert Group said this week that its most recent study suggested that such power stations were the main cause of high peak concentrations of particles that occurred in the […]
