About Cadmium

Cadmium compounds occur naturally in the environment, particularly in areas of mineralisation. The major emission source is the processing of metal ores for lead, zinc and copper, where cadmium is a valuable by-product.

The guideline for Cadmium is 2µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Cadmium is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
