Using modeling to map out ways to mitigate traffic related particulate matter in Iceland
Exceedances of the health limit for particulate matter (PM10) pollution, due to traffic, occur several times a year in the capital area of Iceland. Because of the adverse health effects of PM10 pollution finding ways to reduce this pollution is very important. To model possible mitigation...

Particles – a problem in enclosed railway environments
From a climate perspective, rail transport in Sweden is sustainable. However, rail traffic can give rise to levels of particles that are harmful to human health. Thanks to various research projects over recent years, VTI has been able to acquire the right knowledge to help address these...

EU project to reduce emissions
Road transport is a major source of air pollution that harms human health and the environment. A three-year EU project, in which VTI is participating, aims to achieve a wider societal impact by providing citizens with the knowledge and tools to understand, assess and control their pollutant...

Additional policy instruments are needed to achieve Swedish environmental quality objectives for maritime transport
Achieving the national and international environmental objectives for maritime airborne emissions requires a combination of new and more powerful policy instruments. The policies already in place are not enough. This is one of the conclusions of a research project, led by VTI, which has now been...
