One of the main challenges we face today is to reduce pollution from traffic and improve air quality in our cities.
The metro is a mode of transport that moves a large number of people efficiently and sustainably.
Within the European IMPROVE LIFE project, CSIC and TMB are taking measurements to assess how the movement of trains and external pollution affect air quality in Barcelona metro stations, in order to propose and develop improvement measures.

To know more about¬†IMPROVE-LIFE we invite you to see the project’s video.

IMPROVE-LIFE PROJECT is testing measures that can reduce PM concentrations in platforms and inside trains, taking into account variations in all the key factors such as station depth, date of construction, station design, type of ventilation, types of brakes used on the trains, train frequency and the presence or absence of platform screen door systems. It also comprises indoor carriage air quality.

We would like to know your opinion, by answering this brief questionnaire.
