Deutsch: Staub / Español: Polvo / Português: Poeira / Français: Poussière / Italiano: Polvere
Dust consists of particles in the atmosphere that come from various sources such as soil dust lifted by weather (an aeolian process), volcanic eruptions, and pollution. Dust in homes, offices, and other human environments contains small amounts of plant pollen, human and animal hairs, textile fibers, paper fibers, minerals from outdoor soil, human skin cells, burnt meteorite particles and many other materials which may be found in the local environment.

In an industrial and manufacturing context, "dust" refers to small particles or powder generated from various processes, such as grinding, cutting, drilling, or processing of raw materials. Dust can be harmful to workers and the environment and can pose health risks if inhaled. Some examples of dust in industrial and manufacturing industries include:

  1. Wood dust - Small particles generated from sanding, sawing, or drilling wood products, which can pose respiratory hazards if inhaled.

  2. Metal dust - Particles generated from grinding, cutting, or welding metal products, which can contain toxic metals and pose health risks if inhaled.

  3. Construction dust - Fine particles generated from drilling, grinding, or demolition of buildings, which can contain silica and other harmful substances.

  4. Chemical dust - Fine particles generated from processing or handling of chemicals, which can be hazardous to health and the environment if inhaled or spilled.

  5. Grain dust - Fine particles generated from processing grain products, such as flour, which can pose fire and explosion hazards.

  6. Coal dust - Fine particles generated from mining and processing coal, which can pose respiratory hazards if inhaled and contribute to air pollution.

  7. Paint dust - Fine particles generated from sanding or spraying paint, which can contain toxic solvents and pose health risks if inhaled.

Industrial and manufacturing facilities often employ dust control measures, such as ventilation systems and personal protective equipment, to mitigate the risks associated with dust exposure.
