Fine particles are the greatest threat to public health
Without really being aware of it, we breathe in small quantities of toxic particles from the surrounding air 24 hours a day. Even though they are invisible to the human eye, these tiny floating particles, referred to as fine particles and ultra-fine particles, are responsible for a great many health problems.More about fine particles
A bottleneck for economic growth
The issue of ultra-fine particles almost seemed to be subject to an international cover-up. However, the impact of this invisible air pollution is slowly starting to get the attention it deserves, mainly due to media attention and scientific studies carried out by environmental and health institutes. Socially sensitive topics, such as increasing maximum speed limits, expanding an airport’s aircraft movements or developing major infrastructure projects, are now accompanied by serious discussions regarding air quality and the effects on public health.
