Abstract

This work aims at estimating NOx and PM10 emissions from road traffic with high spatial and temporal resolution (seconds and meters). This is useful to understand the effect of local abatement measures and it is an essential input to microscale air quality models. For that, 1-hour representative traffic scenarios are simulated with the traffic microsimulation model VISSIM in selected hot-spots. Measured traffic data (fluxes and fleet composition) are used as inputs for the model to obtain speed-time profiles for each vehicle. These profiles are used to calculate specific emission factors for different vehicle classes according to the VERSIT+micro model through the ENVIVER interface. This modelling system allows assessing possible effects of different local scale interventions such as vehicle volume reduction, fleet composition and vehicle technology changes, etc. both on the total amount of emission amount and their spatial distribution. According to this analysis, some local measures may bring about important emission reductions in both locations, up to 28% and 23% for NOx and PM10 respectively. Such measures may therefore constitute a valuable complement for city-scale policies and measures.
