According to the WHO, air pollution is the responsible of the death of around 7 million people each year, making it the world’s greatest environmental health problem.
In Spain, up to 15 million people breathe air that the EU considers unhealthy.
In this discouraging scenario, improving the air quality we breathe is presented as the highest priority for society in the 21st century.
- We study and analyze the scope of polluting emissions in localized sources (industries) and in urban environments (road traffic).
- We model the dispersion of polluting emissions and evaluate their impact on the environment in which they are emitted and on the people exposed to them.
- CARTIF has an advanced software that allows modeling the dispersion of emissions and identifying measures to reduce their environmental impact.
CARTIF models pollution from road traffic at heights, contributing to a better traffic management.
