NANOPARTICLE EMISSIONS FROM THE TRANSPORT SECTOR: HEALTH AND POLICY IMPACTS

Project description

Generating knowledge on transport-generated nanoparticle emissions

To improve air quality, Europe is tough on emissions. Emission standards for road vehicles were introduced in the 1970s. Over the years, measures have been tightened and extended to cover all modes. The focus is now on non-exhaust particulate emissions. The EU-funded nPETS project will investigate the sub 100 nm emissions from creation to the potential path to human beings and animals. Emissions characterisation will be undertaken in shipping, road, rail, and aviation sectors by linking their sizes, chemical compositions, and morphologies to specific emission sources such as engines, brakes, clutches, and tyres. This will elucidate the adverse risks posed by different types and sources of the identified sub 100 nm particles for accurate risk quantification.
