nPETS aims to study the life of the sub 100 nm emissions from its creation to its potential path to human beings and animals.
nPETS contributes to better public health policies by developing new knowledge in the area of transport generated nanoparticle emissions and their toxicology.
nPETS develops innovative methods for quantification of toxicity in the field for all transport modes.
Today there are no existing methods for measuring these sub 100 nm particle emissions from various individual sources.
An average of 50% reduction in sub 100 nm particle number is expected due to a better understanding of the emission sources per transport mode.
n-PETS sampling campaign at the harbor of Barcelona just started
To study nanoparticles concentrations and their toxicity from shipping emissions IDAEA-CSIC mobile unit is deployed in the port of Barcelona. The following parameters are measured: sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ozone, and black carbon. The Electrical Low-Pressure...
Cytotoxicity assays with the ALI in LAT Lab in Thessaloniki
In the Laboratory of Physiology, School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, we perform cytotoxicity assays. We estimate the viability of epithelial cells (A549) after exposure to car exhaust nanoparticle emissions, using the ALI (Air-Liquid Interface)...
