Road dust sampling equipment exported

The ability to sample and analyse road dust amounts and properties is vital to the effort to reduce levels of hazardous particles in our ambient air. The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) has been performing such sampling for many years using the wet dust sampler (WDS), but now a number of countries are interested in VTI’s equipment and two were recently exported to Norway and Finland.
