Research of Aviation PM Technologies, mOdelling and Regulation

Understanding the impact aircraft emissions have on public health. 

RAPTOR aims to increase our understanding of the potential impact PM (particulate matter)  emissions have on public health. In addition, it will investigate the relationship between noise and emissions, and elaborate new methods to measure exhaust emissions. RAPTOR has started in November 2019 and will run until October 2021.

Aviation contributes to air pollution via particulate matter (PM) emissions, which are solid particles and liquid droplets released by aircraft in the air. This affects public health inside the airports and in the adjacent areas. The EU European Union (European Union)-funded RAPTOR project will coordinate the efforts of a wide range of stakeholders to concentrate and exploit related research made at European level.
