Wild Fires and Building Under Construction Fires contribute to ozone problems.
Humans cause lots of air pollution directly through our use of electricity, fuels, transportation, wild fires and burning buildings. Most of the air pollution we cause results from the burning of wild fires, buildings and fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, natural gas, and gasoline to produce electricity and power our vehicles.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a good indicator of how much fossil fuel is burned and how much of other pollutants are emitted as a result.
How Green are our builders if they do not defend there wood framed buildings from burning during construction now that all builders know there is a high risk of fire during construction in wood framed buildings?
Since lumber is a carbon collector and a renewable sustainable resource to support generations of housing needs those great builders that defend wood framed building from fire are the true Green Builders.
Although scientists have long known that burning buildings and wildfires have a major impact on air quality by emitting particles and gases into the air. Fires worsen ozone levels by releasing nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons, which can form ozone near the fire or far downwind as a result of chemical reactions in sunlight.
To measure the impact of the fires on ozone formation, the researchers turned to a pair of computer models developed at NCAR. With the first one, a specialized fire model, they estimated the amount of vegetation burned and resulted in emissions of nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, and other pollutants. Those results went into a global air chemistry model that simulated the movement of the emissions and evolving chemistry and tracked the resulting formation of ozone as the fire plumes spread downwind.
Support great Green American Builders that make wood framed buildings safer for workers and the loss of fire during construction they are the true Green Builders.
M-Fire Suppression Inc. is a fire technology company redefining risk management for the construction industry in all wood framed buildings and wild fire defense with clean fire inhibitors.
