Much attention is given to particle emissions because of their negative health effects. There is special focus on the smallest particles: nanoparticles, also called ultrafine particles. Particle emissions come from burning wood and wood pellets in woodburners and boilers, biomass burning, the use of diesel in the transport sector or in the maritime sector. Nanoparticles are generated from most burning processes. They contribute only very little in the measured particle mass, but often make up a very big part in terms of numbers
The Danish Technological Institute has extensive experience in measurements of both mass and particles based on numbers and physical and chemical particle characterization. We command a wide range of up–to-date equipment for particle measurement, which enables us to customize a solution for most jobs within particle characterization. See Particle Analyses.
