Environmental interaction of copper and zinc released from building materials as a result of atmospheric corrosion

The increased awareness of potential environmental effects caused by diffuse emissions of metals from various sources in the society, such as external buildings, traffic, and tap-water systems, has during the last decades resulted in several restrictive and legislative actions towards the use of selected metals in external applications. Such regulatory actions are commonly based on the precautionary principle and conservative assumptions, mainly due to significant gaps of knowledge on real metal flows and its environmental interaction. The Div. of corrosion Science at KTH in Stockholm, Swede has therefore, together with national and international metal producers and organizations, implemented cross-disciplinary research activities in order to provide scientifically sound data that can be used to elucidate the whole p pathway of released metals from source to recipient.
