Below is an overview of the possible scope of parameters for the Växjö pilot. Some will be measured throughout the project and some will be experimented with to investigate the
benefits for the city managers.
Fine particulate matter is perhaps the most alarming issue when it comes to global air quality.
These particles are very harmful and cause millions of premature deaths each year.
Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is a major component of NOx and an important factor for the buildup of Smog and ground level Ozone.
It also contributes to acidification and eutrophication of aquatic ecosystems.
Carbon oxide (CO) is a toxic, colourless and odourless gas that is formed when burning carbon-based fuels in low-oxygen conditions.
The CO situation has improved, but there are still problems in parts of the world.
