The goal of Project Air Quality Khambhat is to eliminate the high amount exposure to silica dust in the Indian Khambhat community byu conceiving a solution that will effectively limit the amount of silica dust in the air. Known for its stone bead industry, Khambhat has many workers constantly grinding stones, causing excessive silica dust to collect and spread around their work areas. Dust on their clothing can also be brought home, affecting their families as well, resulting in long-term health effects of silicosis, including pneumonia and lung cancer, among other issues.
