What can I do myself to reduce PM emission?
By means of a few small and simple behavioural changes, everyone can contribute to a reduction of particulate matter emissions, certainly when smog episodes occur:
- Using alternative ways of transportation, such as public transport or by bike, instead of using your own car
- Not using diesel cars that aren't equipped with soot filters
- Not using a fireplace or a stove 'for fun'
- Lowering the heating system a degree ot two
