REDUST Seminars


REDUST Seminars were held at Viikki Environment house, Helsinki

REDUST has hosted two international street dust seminars for Scandinavian and Baltic audiences. First international seminar was held in October 2012 and second seminar  in September 2014. REDUST seminars are focused on prevention of street dust by means of improved maintenance, but other topics relating to air quality have been debated as well. Presentations of the international REDUST seminars offer insight to important themes of street dust research, air quality monitoring and street maintenance work in Northern areas.
