Emissions of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons from Natural Gas Extraction into Air

This article is the corrected version of last year’s study publication [*] which investigated the immissions of PAHs with passive air samplers deployed in different distances to natural gas facilities. No cancer risk due to airborne PAHs higher than the EPA’s acceptable risk levels was found. However, as the authors point out, the applied method …
