Beneficiary UB attended Greater London Authority workshop on the efficacy of the application of dust suppressants on reducing PM10 concentrations at hotspots in London and other mitigation measures.
A public event, “Urban Air Quality: The Challenge of Non-Exhaust Emissions from Traffic” was organized by AIRUSE coordinator, in Barcelona on July 10-11, 2013 with the participation of experts and European stake holders.
A Preliminary Survey too was sent to all participants posing 10 questions about non-exhuast emissions from road traffic in order to identify common visions and possible disagreements. The results of this questionnaire are now available.
The debate was divided in four main sessions on air pollution from non-exhaust emissions:
- Measurements and emission estimates
- Health effects
- Mitigation measures
These are the Minuts of the Open-Forum:
Energy and urban air quality were discussed by AIRUSE members, several national authorities, and representatives of both research institutes and private companies.
You can now follow the discussion trough the available presentations.
