ULtrafine particles from TRansportation – Health Assessment of Sources

Project description

Health impact of exposure to nanoparticles from transport

They may be tiny but ultrafine particles (UFPs) can pose a big health risk. For instance, inhalation of these nano-sized particles has been associated with respiratory diseases. Non-regulated nanoparticle emissions from transport sources belong to this category of high concern. The EU-funded ULTRHAS project will reveal the health threats posed by nanoparticles from different transport sources. Specifically, it will address the impact of different transport modes, fuel technologies and wear components, including atmospheric ageing processes, on the physicochemical characteristics of particulate and gaseous emissions. To study the harmful effects in the lung, the project will apply emission measurement, exposure, and toxicity-testing approaches under highly controlled laboratory conditions.
