The research and application projects carried out by the Pollutant Imissions Group of the Air Pollution Control Department concern the physicochemical properties of aerosols emitted by industrial processes and the study of primary and secondary aerosols in atmospheric air. The scope of these studies also includes identifying the sources of aerosols and investigating the gas transformation processes of the precursors of solid particles.
Research is carried out within the framework of statutory activities and individual projects funded by the National Science Centre.
Work is currently underway to create a Polish infrastructure for aerosol and trace gas research within the framework of the ACTRIS IMP project (ACTRIS PL national consortium). Together with IGF PAN and IMWM PIB, construction of a research station in Racibórz has begun. The team's equipment is also used in campaign measurements related to the assessment of pollutant background for new investments or the assessment of immission distribution in areas with social conflicts due to air pollution.
