Theme 1: Project 6: Exposure to emissions from incinerators

Staff experienced in the specialised environmental exposure modelling skills being employed for the bioaerosols project (project 2) have also been participating in emissions modelling for UK municipal waste incinerators towards the last months of year 1, a project led by Imperial with PHE (CRCE) input. This will be further developed into a publication in year 2 of the HPRU and contribute towards substantive epidemiological studies to assess if there are any associations between incinerator emissions and adverse birth outcomes.
