Understanding the impact aircraft emissions have on public health
Aviation contributes to air pollution via particulate matter (PM) emissions, which are solid particles and liquid droplets released by aircraft in the air. This affects public health inside the airports and in the adjacent areas. The EU-funded RAPTOR project will coordinate the efforts of a wide range of stakeholders to concentrate and exploit related research made at a European level. The project aims to increase our understanding of the potential impact PM emissions have on public health. In addition, it will investigate the relationship between noise and emissions, and elaborate new methods to measure exhaust emissions.
