Particle pollution (PM10 and PM2.5)
The air quality standards for particle pollution are exceeded more frequently than for other pollutants. Despite this, Victoria’s particle pollution is reasonably low by global standards. PM10 pollution remains an issue in Brooklyn in Melbourne’s inner west, and is associated with dust emissions generated by industry and vehicles.
