This project has the potential to significantly contribute to meeting the challenges Europe faces today to make its transportation system clean, secure, and efficient. The PAREMPI project will reveal the contribution of the secondary aerosols (SecA) from transport sources to ambient PM2.5 levels via an increased understanding of precursors, and their atmospheric reactions and by a novel digital software (ePMI module).
Transportation is crucial in the worldwide distribution of food, materials, energy and more. However, all transport sectors are substantial emitters of air pollutants. The EU-funded PAREMPI project will reveal the contribution of the secondary aerosols (SecA) from transport sources to ambient PM2.5 levels via the increased understanding of precursors and their atmospheric reactions and by a novel digital software (ePMI module).
Transport sectors’ influence on harmful ambient PM2.5 is largely unknown and hence increased understanding and scientific evidence are needed to justify policies and produce tools to enable the introduction of policies. Answering the key questions requires extensive emissions studies far beyond those covered by current emission standards.
To address the key challenges PAREMPI will:
The ambitious goal of the PAREMPI project is to gain scientific evidence of the contribution of transport sectors’ emissions to ambient PM2.5 levels and to develop tools, methods and recommendations to enable wider impacts to prevent these emissions leading to reduced smog formation, less premature deaths, and savings in the related external costs, and hence substantial benefits in healthy living, growth in economy and welfare in Europe and globally.
We are happy to officially kick off the PAREMPI project, which formally started on the 1st of January 2023. With 8 partners from 6 European countries, the project was presented online on the 1st of February among the consortium members and discussed the main activities it will carry out in 3 years. The main goal of PAREMPI is to produce scientific evidence and knowledge, develop digital tools and recommend policies targeting all transport modes to prevent ambient PM2.5 (Particulate Matter) concentrations. With this work, PAREMPI will contribute to cleaner, more secure, and more efficient transportation systems in Europe. Are you ready?
