SPM is Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM)
SPM consists of mist, dust, fumes and smoke. Common chemicals that constitute SPM are nickel, arsenic and lead. When these particles are inhaled, they tend to accumulate in the lungs and cause respiratory problems and lung damage. Diseases caused by SPM include asbestosis, siderosis, silicosis and byssinosis.
