Theme 1: Project 6: Exposure to emissions from incinerators

Exposure modelling of particulates has been completed, but it proved impossible to conduct modelling for dioxins or metals as measurements were too sparse.

A human breast milk collection has been conducted near three incinerators in the BEED study and chemical analyses of the breast milk will inform whether there are significant differences in breast milk contaminants, informed by modelled PM10 exposure tertiles.
