WE ARE EXPLORING THE DOWN TO TEN WORLD OF EMISSIONS: THE SPECIES OF PARTICLES, THEIR CHEMISTRY AND SECONDARY FORMATIONS.

We go below 23 nm and down to 10 nm to understand, define, develop measurement methods, evaluate, simulate and regulate the newly discovered particles in the exhaust emissions of petrol and diesel engines.
