Climate & air quality
Limiting climate change and air pollution is one of today’s greatest societal challenges. Discover how we contribute to this with research on climate and air quality.
Climate change and air pollution
We’re developing methods to measure particulate matter, nitrogen, and greenhouse gases. And we're identifying the sources and effects of emissions.
Our latest developments
Climate change makes carbon sinks more vulnerable
In a new publication by ICOS, new data confirms that natural carbon sinks such as the ocean and forests are not stable.
How CCU can shape the carbon transition
Carbon capture and utilisation, or CCU, is a technology that involves capturing CO2 emitted from (industrial) processes and using it to make new products. It therefore doesn’t only reduce CO2 emissions, it creates new market potential. Government and industry alike see the necessity of understanding which CCU value chains are future-proof and economically, environmentally and politically viable. The Province of Zuid-Holland wanted to know what role CCU has in the future for the province.

Major environmental challenges of the 21st century relate to the composition of our atmosphere. Exposure to pollutants such as particulate matter is associated with significant health impacts. Deposition of atmospheric reactive nitrogen causes a loss of biodiversity in ecosystems through eutrophication.
