Home Gas Emissions

With measuring criteria developed by EPA, the typical home burning natural gas produces more indoor pollution than any other source.
It's not just the volume of contaminated gas that's important, it's also the content of hazardous chemcials and the lack of quality that exposes us to the most harm.

One example of hazardous content is the findings from Penn State University which reports finding PCB levels as high as 1,250 ppm in gas pipes. The EPA restricts human exposure to PCBs at 50 ppm and is considering reducing that level even further. Many in the scientific community feel there are no safe exposure levels for PCBs.

Another example of gas content is Particulate Matter (PM). PM is the "soot, carbon black and oily grime" produced when gas is burned. The EPA has lowered the PM exposure levels to 2.5 microns. EPA warns that (PM) causes more asthma and breathing difficulties in women and children than previously known, and wants PM exposure in our environment to be reduced or eliminated.

For comparison, its like dumping a fully loaded vacum cleaner bag all over the house - and inside your clothes - every day. Day in and day out. Contaminated gas is like the sorcerer's apprentice, it just keeps adding to the gas contamination levels.

Nobody goes around dumping vacum bags of dust all over their home. Yet, the gas utility dumps their gas waste on you every day, without your permission or knowledge, and . . . they make you pay them.

Contaminated natural gas produces more indoor air pollution than tobacco or second-hand smoke. Therefore, gas combustion is the largest and most dangerous source of pollution people are exposed to.

Filtered gas reduces emissions and offers cleaner, safer gas than gas utilities can provide.

Because retail and consumer products use larger volumes of gas in their operations than homes do. Contaminated gas comes into direct contact with the products made for consumers.

When this product contamination is added to the pollution exposure in the home, our health and safety is being seriously compromised by contaminated natural gas.
