Road dust can be cleaned up or bound to the road surface, but more knowledge is needed to determine which approach is more effective. Project Nordust is consequently starting as a Nordic cooperative initiative in which researchers from Sweden, Iceland, Finland, and Norway will work together to...
A city’s vegetation can affect its air quality both positively and negatively. The positive effect is that the total amount of air pollution decreases because the air is being filtered. On the other hand, vegetation in crowded street canyons can degrade the air locally if deployed in such a way...
For four years, researchers at the Swedish National Road and Transport Institute (VTI) have been working on Ecodriver, a wide-ranging project under the auspices of the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme involving twelve partners in eight countries who have jointly assessed innovative systems for...
Electric roads enable the transport sector to be powered by a broad green-energy base of wind, solar, and hydro power. Having stakeholders and policymakers with the courage to make the commitment, Sweden has an opportunity to be a trailblazer. Tests and demonstrations are underway in the Swedish...
A major debate is underway as to which winter tyres are best, studded or non-studded. But there is more to making a decision as a consumer than just that question. On ice and snow, non-studded tyres made for Nordic conditions differ greatly from those produced for Central European conditions....
The concentrations of inhalable particulate matter (PM10) in the air in several Swedish cities do not meet the EU air quality directive and the Swedish Environmental Quality Standards. Since 2011, intensifying efforts are made to reduce particle levels in Stockholm, where the problems are...
