Sulphur Waste Pit At Oil Refinery

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

Air pollution is the leading cause of premature death in the EU. Research continues to expose unexpected links between air pollution and disease, such as dementia, kidney disease, and diabetes. 

We encounter this contamination through many vectors: micro particles, gases, even precipitation through rainwater. The vector sources vary: from the auto standing beside us to the power plant on the other side of the planet. The root cause is the same: our reliance on hydrocarbons.

The sulphur content of various fuels is a direct health threat through sulphur-dioxide, an invisible gas, and the formation of airborne soot.

So many thanks to SouthWings for flight support!
