Road transport emissions and health

Facilitator: Clare Walter – Air Quality and Health SIG Co-chair

Time: 9 am – 11 am AEST

The Air Quality and Health SIG and Transport SIG have collaborated to present three AIR TALKS on the public health impacts of traffic related air pollution.    Each event will step you through emissions and their effects on human health; transport planning, international and local focus; and finally, mitigation.  The SIGs have prepared an impressive list of eight speakers with a local and international focus as well as speakers with expertise in different, but related subject areas.  Just what we need to understand the complex puzzle of transport and health.

The sessions will run consecutively on 17 June, 18 June and 19 June.

For the first AIR TALK, Dr Haneen Khreis from the Texas A&M Transport Institute will provide a science-based analysis of exhaust and non exhaust emissions, with a particular focus on electric vehicles.  Following this, Professor Graeme Zosky will detail micro human health impacts, including the toxicological response of emissions from road transport.
