Discussion of EPA Standards on PM2.5 and PM10

PM stands for Particulate Matter. It refers to an EPAs category of air pollution that is affecting millions of people on our planet. PM is regulated by the EPA based on size — PM 2.5 is 2.5 micrometers and smaller; PM 10 is between 10 micrometers and 2.5 micrometers. This lesson is a primer to begin discussion of the EPA’s standards on regulating the amount of Particulate Matter that humans inhale. Elgin Sweeper manufactures street sweepers that remove PM 2.5 and PM 10 from our neighborhood streets. Elgin Sweeper has undergone official verification that specific, street sweeper vehicles remove PM 2.5 and PM 10 to meet and exceed EPA standards.
