Ultrafine particle (UFP) pollution produced from diesel vehicle exhaust is a global problem that threatens the health of citizens living in urban areas. UFPs are less than 0.1 micrometers in diameter and have been associated with serious health problems such as chronic COPD, heart failure, and cancer. The goal of our project, sponsored by Miljøpunkt Indre By & Christianshavn, was to identify political, technological, and social solutions to lower traffic-related UFP exposure for citizens in Copenhagen. Based on the investigation, which consisted of literature reviews, key interviews, and field data collection, Copenhagen should focus efforts on enforcing new DPF technology and regulating modern diesel emissions tests during the transition to emissions-free transportation.
