Assessing outdoor air quality and public health impact attributable to residential black carbon emissions in rural China

Black carbon is a key component of particulate matter that includes air pollution, climate forcing, and more implications for public health. Residents of rural China may experience severe respiratory and cardiopulmonary health problems, which have however been poorly investigated. An improved method of estimating the BC-related public health burden is required. Based on a previous field inquiry, which were then refined for air quality simulation, Domestic BC emissions at 1u00d71 km resolution were compiled at 1u00d71 km resolution, which was based on a previous field investigation. Residential combustion of solid fuel in rural China accounted for 648. 0 Gg BC in 2014, after dispersion, accounting for 58% of annual mean ground-level BC concentration in China. These results reveal that rural residential BC emissions play a significant role in air pollution generation and public health impacts. Our findings are expected to provide useful information for implementing China's next-stage environmental policy for the residential market.
