NEX-EL project – Non-exhaust emissions in electrifying mining and urban environment
The NEX-EL project will develop measurement methods and characterize the sources and the role of non-exhaust emissions in two contrasting environments:
- A working environment with major air quality challenges
Urban traffic environment
- Emissions affect large group of population with significant total impact
Mining and urban traffic are challenging work environments in terms of air quality and in urban environment large group of people are exposed to these emissions. The share of non-exhaust in total emissions will increase due to the electrification and strict emission limits set for the exhaust emissions. Electrification of machinery and vehicles emphasize the role of emissions other than exhaust emissions, and respective limitations are anticipated.
In case of machinery and vehicles, these emissions include particles from road surface, brakes and tires. In mining, emissions from operations (e.g., use of explosives) are significant.
