  • Cyclists map Antwerp air pollution with on-bike monitors

    Cyclists with pollution monitors and GPS trackers attached to their bicycles have produced detailed maps of Antwerp’s air quality, as part of a recent study. Their data show that a gap of just a few metres between cycle lanes and cars significantly reduces cyclists’ risk of inhaling high levels of ultrafine particle pollution. Personal ‘mobile monitoring’ is attracting ...

  • Microplasma Technology for pollution detection: radical new developments

    The air we breathe is critical to supporting life functions and yet it is colorless, odorless, tasteless -- and constantly changing. Our bodies’ reaction to the quality of the air we breathe depends on what we are exposed to, the degree of exposure, the status of our health and our genetic make-up. Air quality is dynamic; when it changes even slightly, it can have a dramatic effect on health. An ...

  • Successful airborne pollution compliance monitoring of ships at sea

    Despite new legislation that requires ships to burn low sulphur marine oil in EU and US coastal waters, the economic benefits of continuing to use inexpensive, high-sulphur fuels, combined with the relatively small risk of getting caught, means that many ships are flouting the rules. However, this could be about to change as a real-time, airborne pollution detection system based around a pair of ...

  • Latest emission control technology could eradicate harmful air pollution hotspots

    Switching to the best available emission control technologies could eliminate 99% of particulate matter pollution ‘hotspots’, a new study suggests. The researchers reached this conclusion by expanding the local-scale capabilities of an existing computer model that estimates the effects of air pollution policies and control measures. Particulate matter (PM) pollution has been linked ...

  • Space technology helps find space, reduce pollution, and save money

    Today, freight transport by lorries and containers is a highly automated and optimised business. However, even with the best planning possible, useful space is often left empty. Two German inventors have come up with an idea on how to use satellites to improve the allocation of truck capacity. At the 2008 European Satellite Navigation Competition, backed by ESA's Technology Transfer Programme, ...
