  1. 1. Evaluation of Dust Suppressants for Gravel Roads : Methods Development and Efficiency Studies

    Author : Karin Edvardsson; Björn Birgisson; Andrew Dawson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Gravel road; dust; particulate matter; PM10; horizontal dust diffusion; deteriorations; maintenance; dust control; dust suppressants; efficiency; application rate; leaching; residual concentration; seasonal variations; salt solution; solid salt; calcium chloride; magnesium chloride; lignosulphonate; polysaccharide sugar ; bitumen emulsion; rape oil; starch; surfactant; mesa; clay; fine material content;

    Abstract : Approximately 75 percent (300 000 km) of the total Swedish road network and 20 percent(20 000 km) of the national road network consists of gravel roads. One of the most significantproblems associated with gravel roads is traffic-generated dust emission, which contributes tothe deterioration of the road surface and acts as a major source of particulate matter releasedinto the atmosphere, thereby involving public economics, road safety, human health, andenvironmental quality.

  2. 2. Evaluation of Dust Suppressants for Gravel Roads: Methods Development and Efficiency Studies

    Author : Karin Oscarsson; Högskolan Dalarna; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gravel road; dust; particulate matter; PM10; horizontal dust diffusion; deteriorations; maintenance; dust control; dust suppressants; efficiency; application rate; leaching; residual concentration; seasonal variations; salt solution; solid salt; calcium chloride; magnesium chloride; lignosulphonate; polysaccharide sugar ; bitumen emulsion; rape oil; starch; surfactant; mesa; clay; fine material content.; Complex Systems – Microdata Analysis; Komplexa system - mikrodataanalys;

    Abstract : Application of the proper dust suppressant to a gravel road ensures road safety and riding comfort as well as creating a cleaner and healthier environment for residents in buildings adjacent to the road. It also reduces the need and cost for vehicle repair, road maintenance activities, and aggregate supplementation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Non-Exhaust PM10 and Road Dust

    Author : Joacim Lundberg; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Mats Gustafsson; Sara Janhäll; Göran Blomqvist; Brynhild Snilsberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Road Dust; Abrasion Wear; Road Surface Macro Texture; Mean Profile Depth; Mean Texture Depth; Emissions; Abrasion Wear Model; NORTRIP; PM10; Air Quality; Particles; Vägdamm; Vägslitage; Dubbslitage; Textur; Emissioner; Slitagemodell; NORTRIP; PM10; Partiklar; Luftkvalitet; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Dust; Inhalable particle; Pavement; Tyre; Wear; Abrasion; Health; 15 Road: Environment; 15 Road: Environment;

    Abstract : Non-exhaust PM10 is an issue in the urban environment linked to health issues. Emissions of non-exhaust PM10 is relatable to pavement properties. Also of importance is resuspension of road dust stored from surfaces. This depends on the traffic and metrological conditions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Controlled dust separation : theoretical and experimental study of the possibilities of controlled dust separation in copper producing processes

    Author : Caisa Samuelsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Process Metallurgy; Processmetallurgi;

    Abstract : Dust is generated in high temperature processes, such as incineration plants, power plants and within the metallurgical industry. The amount of dust generated, chemical and mineralogical composition of the dust as well as physical properties will largely depend on the process generating the dust but also on the off gas system used.
