npets nanoparticle emmissions of the transport section




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.

First tests with clutch tribometer in Lund

First tests with clutch tribometer in Lund

Last week the nPETS clutch tribometer built in Lund was tested for sub-100 nm particles. Minghui Tu and Ulf Olofsson from KTH brought their High resolution ELPI+ instrument to both count the number of sub 100 nm particles as well as to collect them on filters. They...
