Technological interest since the mid-1950s has centered on automobile air pollution, pollution by oxides of sulfur and nitrogen, and the control of these emissions. Attention is also being directed toward the problems that are being caused by the greenhouse effect resulting from increased concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer, long-range transport of pollution, and acid deposition. 2 Types of Air Pollutants What is clean air?

The medium for continued maintenance and growth contains salts and glucose, usually with a bicarbonate buffer. Because of the bicarbonate buffering system, these cultures are maintained in a 5–10% CO2 atmosphere in a temperature and humidity controlled incubator. Many cells require serum for optimal growth, inducing considerable variability into the experimental system. Since the factors provided by serum are numerous and complex, defined serum substitutes are not always successful. The factors provided by serum include proteins such as growth factors, insulin, and transferrin (to provide available iron), small organic molecules such as ethanolamine, and pyruvate and inorganic ions, such as selenium.
