What?

Nitrogen dioxide is one of the main air pollutants being studied worldwide, mainly produced as a result of road traffic and combustion of fossil fuels, for example for domestic heating and in industrial processes. Besides having negative health effects, nitrogen dioxide also contributes to the atmospherical formation of other air pollutants, such as particulate matter and ozone. It is because of these effects nitrogen dioxide limits have been set by the European Commission and the World Health Organisation.

Because of the importance of NO2 monitoring, the Belgian Interregional Environment Agency, the Flemish Institute for Technological Research and the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy co-operated in the BELSPO-funded project “Belgian Urban NO2 Monitoring Based on APEX remote sensing” (BUMBA). On the occasion of the end of this project, we organise a study day, where the results of the BUMBA project will be presented, among several other air pollution monitoring projects.

This event will provide an opportunity for multiple groups of interest to come together, learn about and discuss causes for nitrogen dioxide pollution, different ways of air pollution monitoring and to be shown future perspectives.
