"BrennerLEC" is a European LIFE project aiming at testing and applying an advanced environmental traffic management system on the Italian A22 highway, in order to reduce pollutants, and in particular NOx emissions. A dense network of meteorological, including sonic anemometers, and air quality sensors is going to be implemented for the project, aiming at fully characterising air quality conditions along the highway and traffic-induced turbulence. Moreover, an advanced modelling chain, composed of integrated meteorological, air quality and traffic models, will be developed to support testing and application of temporary reduction of speed limits connected to critical air quality situations.
