Introduction of local Air Quality Management in South Africa: Overview and challenges (2012)
Journal Article
Hayes, E. T., Diab, R. D., Naiker, Y., Diab, R., Zunckel, M., & Hayes, E. T. (2012). Introduction of local Air Quality Management in South Africa: Overview and challenges. Environmental Science and Policy, 17, 62-71. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envsci.2011.11.009

Air pollution control in South Africa has undergone a shift from the best practicable means to an Air Quality Management approach. Previous legislation was out-dated and did not achieve acceptable air quality. Further, policy and legislative developm...

Spatial variations in airborne microorganism and endotoxin concentrations at green waste composting facilities (2011)
Journal Article
Pollard, S. J., Longhurst, J. W., Hayes, E. T., Pankhurst, L. J., Deacon, L. J., Liu, J., …Tyrrel, S. F. (2011). Spatial variations in airborne microorganism and endotoxin concentrations at green waste composting facilities. International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, 214(5), 376-383. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijheh.2011.06.001

The emission and dispersal of bioaerosols from open-air commercial composting facilities continues to be contentious. A meta-dataset enumerating cultivable microorganism emission and downwind concentrations is not yet available. A dataset derived fro...

Evaluation of inflammatory effects of airborne endotoxin emitted from composting sources (2011)
Journal Article
Tyrrel, S. F., Longhurst, P. J., Drew, G. H., Hayes, E. T., Deacon, L. J., Pankhurst, L. J., …Jackson, S. K. (2011). Evaluation of inflammatory effects of airborne endotoxin emitted from composting sources. Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, 30(3), 602-606. https://doi.org/10.1002/etc.434

Because of the lack of effective methodology, the biological effects of environmental endotoxin have not been assessed. Here we have collected and measured airborne endotoxin at different locations around composting sites. Increased endotoxin concent...
