Agenda, Presentations and Posters of the 25 Conference


25th ETH-Conference on Combustion Generated Nanoparticles, June 21-23, 2022

The ETH Conference on Combustion-Generated Nanoparticles in 2021 was organized as an online conference under the auspice of the Swiss Chemical Society (see website of the online conference, https://npc22.scg.ch). It served as an interdisciplinary platform for expert discussions on all aspects of nanoparticles, freshly emitted from various sources, aged in ambient air, technical mitigation aspects, impact of particles on health, environment and climate and particle legislation. The conference brought together representatives from research, industry and legislation.
