  • Call for Speakers – Ultrafine Particles in Airport Regions

    Call for Speakers – Ultrafine Particles in Airport Regions

    The ARC is organizing, together with its member, the Metropolitan Region of Frankfurt, a conference on Ultra Fine Particles in Airport Regions on 23 March 2017. Ultra Fine particles are a rising concern to residents of airport regions, who are on the receiving end of both the particles from the road and from aviation. The knowledge on UFPs is so far very limited: are there differences between UFP from aviation and “other” UFPs? What are the impacts of UFPs? With this conference, we aim to establish a state of the art knowledge and initiate a conversation on solutions. If you feel you can meaningfully contribute to this debate, please contact the ARC at info@airportregions.org.
