Exhaust & non-exhaust emissions: putting transport research & health impacts in perspective

In collaboration with the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation

The session will present data from EU funded projects and other experts to shed light on the relative contributions to pollution indicators and the resulting health impacts of the different sources of pollution, in particular from transport.

The effects of different types of combustion particles and of brake, road and tyre abrasion will be put in perspective and the ranking in terms of abatement needs will be discussed.
