Triangle Bleu

General goal

The project aims to conduct an experimental demonstration and economic validation of an application related to direct ozone reduction: the PremAir technology for improving air quality. It consists in demonstrating the impact of BASF’s PremAir technology on ozone concentrations in the city of Nice with a view to establishing a policy to fight against ozone pollution. Due to its geographical configuration and its climate, Nice is particularly affected by ozone pollution. Its territory is a place of emission of nitrogen oxide and volatile organic compounds from road traffic and forests.

Triangle Bleu

Operational goals

The project consists of developing a feasibility study and then creating and validating an appropriate business model for the application of the ozone reduction technology. The demonstration part is put in place by means of monitoring 10 vehicles from the Ligne d’Azur bus network equipped with radiators coated with PremAir. Repeated measurement campaigns quantify the impact of PremAir on ozone concentrations.

The project involves students from the programs housed at IMREDD, and also IMREDD engineers and partner laboratories, notably ESPACE (Laboratory for the study of structures, adaptation processes and space changes) and GREDEG (Research Group on Law, Economics and Management).
