Results of recent VTI maintenance/PM10 research from Stockholm will be presented in upcoming REDUST seminar

The upcoming REDUST seminar on 30th September will double down on street maintenance research with recents studies from Stockholm.The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) has researched operational measures against PM10 pollution in Stockholm during 2012-2013 and a report of these studies was published in the beginning of 2014.

These operational measures are aimed against high concentrations of inhalable PM10 particles, which occur in Stockholm especially during winter and spring. Measures researched include dust binding with CMA (Calcium magnesium acetate) and street cleaning with advanced vacuum sweepers. Results of this VTI study will be an interesting addition to results of REDUST project, as the operational methods studied are in principle similar but not identical.
