  • Nanoparticles: how small must we measure?

    20 March 2017

    Improving urban air quality is the major impetus for a continuing push towards monitoring and regulating particle emissions. Now attention is extending to include particles significantly below the threshold of current regulation, approaching the molecular range – and Ricardo is spearheading some of the latest research in this area as well as helping industry comply with existing and future regulation.

    In the continuing endeavour to control harmful emissions from motor vehicles, the measurement of particle numbers (PN) is now firmly a part of the European regulatory framework. The introduction of PN standards followed the pioneering work carried out by Ricardo ...

  • Ricardo launches real-world vehicle emissions monitoring service

    20 March 2017
    • Accurate measurement of the emissions of passing vehicles
    • Linked to automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras for individual vehicle identification
    • Data can be used to inform Clean Air Zone and Low Emissions Zone design and policy
    • Highlights the most polluting of vehicles at a given highway location based on actual usage


    Vehicle emissions are the primary cause of air quality standard exceedances in the majority of UK Air Quality Management Areas. Increasing pressure to reduce the impact of pollution from vehicles has led to growing interest in the introduction of ‘Clean Air Zones’ and ‘Low Emission Zones’. However, such mitigation measures are expensive to ...
