    Industrial emissions of fluoride compounds can produce elevated concentrations in the atmosphere. Hydrogen fluoride will exist as a particle, which may dissolve in clouds, fog, rain, dew, or snow. In clouds and moist air it will travel along the air currents until it is deposited as . In , the EPA established a maximum allowable concentration for fluoride in drinking water of 4 milligrams per liter, a guideline designed to prevent the public from being exposed to harmful levels of fluoride. Fluoride in Drinking Water reviews research on various health effects from exposure to fluoride, including studies conducted in the.

    Fluoride combines with aluminum in drinking water and takes it through the blood-brain barrier into the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD, a neurosurgeon, spells out in chilling detail the danger fluoride poses to one’s brain and health in general in his book Health and Nutrition Secrets that can Save Your Life (). The concentration of fluoride in the treated water does not reach levels that could harm any plant or animal species,12 A report of the effect of industrial pollu­ tion, from an aluminum plant on salmon indicated that the usual fluoride concentration of the river .

    WHY FLUORIDE IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUE. Gar Smith. While fluoride compounds occur naturally in some water supplies, the past 50 years have seen a dramatic – and troubling – increase in the volume of man-made industrial fluoride compounds expelled into our water and air. Human exposure to aluminum fluoride can occur in an industrial setting, such as emissions from an aluminum reduction processes, or when a person ingests both a fluoride source (e.g., fluoride in drinking water or residue of fluoride-based pesticides) and an aluminum source; sources of human exposure to aluminum include drinking water, tea, food.

Gurnon and R.L. Smart Abstract Reductions in fluoride-containing gaseous emissions and liquid effluents at a vertical-stud Soderberg anode aluminum smelter are discussed.

Fluoride emissions, in the form of gaseous hydrogen fluoride and sodium and aluminium fluorides and unused cryolite as particulates, are the major undesirable fume component produced in the aluminium smelting process.

Such emissions can be reduced through the use of fume control systems, operational good practice and improved technology. Data Use. Plants with modern control systems to remove and recycle the fluorides today do not generate local concerns.

Optimum fume collection from the electrolytic cells and specific workplace training on minimisation of fugitive fluoride emissions, as well as improvements in cell technology have driven a 50% reduction in total fluoride emissions per.

Fluoride is not protein-bound and occurs as free ion in the plasma (28). The volume of distribution is – litre/kg (4). Bone deposition of fluoride occurs to the extent of 50% in growing children but only 10% in adults (30).

The renal excretion of fluoride is slow; 50% is. Back in the ’s a judgment was entered against Harvey Aluminum (now Martin Marietta) for fluoride pollution from its plant at The Dalles, Oregon. Shortly after the court brought in the bad news, the company came up with test data proving fluoride emissions had dropped spectacularly from 1, pounds a day to around pounds.

The aluminum refining industry was the biggest and most influential fluoride polluter aroundand in America only one company was in the aluminum business: ALCOA. Fluorine is also useful for producing artificial chemicals such as Teflon and Freon, because of its unique properties.

For fluoride emission control from existing primary aluminum facilities, the efficient removal of fluorides from a gas stream is relatively easy.

However, a significant portion of the gaseous emissions from the reduction cells can escape capture by the collection hoods, thus by-passing the primary control system. The average fluoride emission of a primary aluminium smelter within the EU consists for 53% of HF and 47% of particulate fluoride.

In cases where the HF emission is not specified, the maximum proportion of HF is taken as a worst-case estimate for the HF emission. The summation of the fluoride emissions results in a total of.

Given atmospheric circulations at the center of low pressure, it is assumed that fluoride originated a short distance away, from the north or northeast. The probable emission source was the Luvena chemical plant, north of Wielkopolski National Park.
