Dust monitoring

Source-differentiated dust monitoring (coarse and fine dust) and determination of dust precipitation (LRV limits) at:

  • urban, industrial and rural sites
  • quarries and gravel pits
  • construction sites/tunnels

By means of passive (Sigma-2 and Bergerhoff) or active PM10/PM2.5 sampling.

Abrasion particles from traffic

Abrasion particles from traffic

Characterization and quantification of non-exhaust particles in air and water samples:

  • tire wear (microplastic, micro-rubber)
  • brake wear
  • road wear

Analysis of fine dust

Active and passive measurements:

  • Analysis of PM2.5 and PM10 (gravimetry)
  • PM2.5 and PM10 characterization with automated SEM/EDX
  • EC/OC, water soluble ions and element composition
Source apportionment of dust

Source apportionment of dust

Development of measurement concepts:

  • who or what has caused the particle pollution?
  • what is the contribution of a specific source?
  • solutions for dust abatement/control


1. Monitoring of non-exhaust abrasion particles
Yearly dust monitoring including differentiation of abrasion particles (tire wear, brake wear, road wear)

2. Dust monitoring of quarries, construction sites, recycling plants, etc.
(differentiation of a particle group)
