Report on particles

Particles are present in all the air we breathe, in different sizes, shapes and compositions, and can contribute to disease or ultimately death. We have known for a long time that they are dangerous, but research has evolved to cover more diseases and the biological mechanism behind their effects, as well as new information about sources and particle components. The Swedish Environment Protection Agency has compiled the evidence in a new report that municipalities and authorities can use within the framework of their tasks. It covers a wide range of topics, such as biofuels, studded tires, electric cars, wood burning and urban planning, as well as the effects of particles: health problems, premature death, pollution and corrosion.
