Abstract

Future EU-regulations on particle emissions will address size distribution and chemical composition beside the total mass emission rate. Epidemiological studies have found a strong correlation or direct link between sub-micron particles and human health, but not enough is yet known about the toxicological potential of micro-pollutants and effects thresholds.
