Particulate matter emissions from new cars under examination

Earlier this year, a comprehensive measurement campaign was conducted in the ILMARI laboratory on the Kuopio Campus to study particulate matter and ultrafine particle emissions from modern cars. This time, the focus was on new passenger vehicles running on diesel, gasoline and natural gas.
