Measuring and forecasting air quality

Human activities can cause the formation of atmospheric pollutants whose effects on health and the environment are a central preoccupation in France. Ineris is one of the major players in indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring, both in France and internationally.

Atmospheric pollution

The Institute’s contribution to the field is threefold: measuring, predicting and acting by mobilizing its expertise and using innovative metrology, modelling and forecasting tools.
It conducts studies to estimate human exposure both inside and outside buildings, in vehicles or means of public transportation. These studies also help identify direct sources of pollutant emissions and of precursors that become sources of pollution through chemical transformations in the atmosphere. Finally, they evaluate the effectiveness of short and long-term pollution and exposure management strategies.
