Exposure to Carcinogens Indoors Few data are available on the concentration of particle-bound carcinogens such as metals, asbestiform fibres and PAHs in indoor air. , below 1,000 fibres/m 3 ), unless it was used as coating material [1]. When asbestos was used in indoor or ventilation coatings, concentrations of up to 10,000 fibres/m 3 have been measured. In the Cappadocian region in Turkey, erionite-containing rock has been used traditionally as building and insulation material, and indoor air samples in such constructions also contain up to 10,000 fibres/m 3 .

Coal burning and waste incineration account for about 99% of HCI emissions [102]. Industrial sources of HCI are relatively small compared with emissions from coal burning and waste incineration and include glass manufacture and production of steel (steel pickling acid and regeneration). 4% of HCI emissions, waste incineration produced 28 L. 1 % [103]. , and which react very slowly in the atmosphere to yield HCI. , the chlorinated hydrocarbons represent a potential HCI source of about 400 k tons/year.
