NILU OR 41/2013 (pdf)
Summary: This report was requested by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens vegvesen) to provide information concerning non-exhaust traffic emissions in Oslo and the impact of changes in environmental speed limits on these emissions. This report provides the results of calculations made with the dispersion model EPISODE coupled to the NORTRIP road dust emission model, a recently developed emission model for calculating non-exhaust emissions. The change in modelled emissions due to changes in environmental speed limit are calculated for two different speed scenarios, where 'speed limit' and 'realistic speed' changes are compared. In addition the impact of the environmental speed limit is compared to other road dust control measures involving studded tyre share and heavy duty vehicle reduction, taken from a previous report.
