Photocatalysis : Science and Application for Urban Air Quality The LIFE+ PhotoPaq conference 2012

The emphasis of this discussion meeting has been on urban air quality and its possible improvement by photocatalysis.

The meeting aimed at bringing together scientists from different fields (atmospheric chemistry, catalysis, photocatalysis), industry and representatives of local governments (e.g., cities, regions…)

DSCN1391

The meeting consisted of a few relatively long talks, followed by a discussion and poster session where other participants present their studies during the whole day conference. We tried to cover the general aspects of air pollution, addressing mainly sources from transportation and its processing in the atmosphere and active ways to improve air quality in cities.
