A programme to measure the efficiency of techniques to reduce particulate emissions in road sweeping machines

The measurements showed that using lower emission road sweepers can reduce emissions of particulate matter (PM10) in the sweeping process by over 90%. The sweepers also collected over 80% of the test dust and can thus be considered to do their job very efficiently.
