Web And 3g Mobile Phone Based Air Quality Management: Particulates, Public Health, Co-Benefits
WEBAIR-2 will follow-up on E!3266 WEBAIR for urban and industrial air quality management, by extending the application scope and IT technologies employed to: (1) Particulates (PM10/2.5) emission modelling and public health, with emphasis on the political controversial concepts of local traffic reductions by various regulatory and economic instruments; (2) CO2/GHG emissions, energy efficiency and the co-benefits between Kyoto targets (and the emerging follow-up commitments from Copenhagen) and “classical” air pollution, as regulated, for example, in 2008/50/EC, based on a distributed, bottom-up approach to emission control using the directly measurable air pollutants as a direct validation instrument, and (3) Use of 3G mobile phone technology for personalized health related information, warnings and exposure reports e.g., for Asthma patients.A key objective of the proposal is to add elements of sustainable development and explicit environmental criteria to the overall objectives of the Lisbon Strategy.
