The project

Despite notable advancements and adherence to strict emission standards, adverse health effects continue to raise concerns. The concept of “real-world” emissions signifies a partial success of existing measures and technological advances in controlling fossil fuel emissions. However, emerging sources like non-exhaust emissions and microplastics pose new challenges. MI-TRAP focuses on mitigating uncertainties associated with these sources, particularly internal combustion engines, by examining their physicochemical transformation from tailpipe/stack to the ambient environment.

The project addresses the limitations in metrics and parameterization employed in environmental monitoring networks and measurement systems. Currently, these inadequacies hinder the accurate representation of materials initially emitted by engines certified by manufacturers and controlled by legislation. By employing innovative monitoring devices, advanced data analysis, and management schemes, MI-TRAP aims to establish a network of monitoring stations strategically located near transport emission hotspots.
