VTT provides emission control technology and sustainable solutions to mitigate
the emissions from processes, vehicles and engines. VTT operates as an expert
for industry and environmental administrations in national and international
The growing demand from individuals, companies and politicians is creating an
urgent need to characterize the emissions, including from those sources which
have not been monitored until now. Only then can the cost-effective actions
that are needed be focused on those sources which are the most critical ones.
With technology-based environmental solutions, the effects of environmental
disasters can be mitigated.
VTT’s scientific and technological focus on emission control technology
key elements in our research are the characterisation of process and traffic
emissions and generation of new nano- and functional material-driven
purification techniques. Our portfolio on emission measurements includes a
wide variety of methods and specialised analysers for on-line determination as
well as the classification of particulate emissions by size. We develop novel
monitoring tools and concepts for clean processes and product verification.
VTT’s key offering
Our research operations, both in the
field and in the laboratory, help our clients to develop their own products
and processes to be more eco-efficient.
Characterization of emissions from processes, vehicles and engines
provides special measurement methods for gaseous components, which includes
high-performance on-line monitoring as well as characterization, sampling and
specific analysis of several non-regulated trace pollutant species and fine
particles. VTT offers integrated analytical solutions on flow dynamics and
modelling of chemical gas phases, surface reactions and aerosols. We provide
monitoring technologies for emissions at high-temperatures and corrosive
processes. We affect the security of nuclear power plants by estimating the
transport of fission product particles and gases.
Engine combustion emission and energy use
VTT has versatile
laboratory facilities for engine combustion emission and energy use purposes.
We provide reliable and internationally comparable information about emissions
from complete vehicles simulating real-world duty cycles, both for on-road and
non-road applications. We offer easy and cost-effective running tests with
complete vehicles in well-controlled testing environments designed for
different emission reduction systems.
