Concept of PEMs4Nano

The PEMs4Nano project (P4N) addresses the development (based on current direct injection gasoline engines) of measurement procedures down to 10 nm, providing a contribution to future regulation on particle emissions, in particular in real driving conditions. This key contribution is expected to be the technical guidance based on the insight gained in terms of the formation and evolution of particle dynamics, the identified uncertainties, process sensitivities, and the optimisation and demonstration of measurement technologies in real driving conditions.
