Dioxins as a Result of Chlorine in Transport Fuel

Host Organisation: Cp. Foodlab Ltd
Partner Organisation(s): PA 1: LabOil Services Ltd
Project Budget: 323.970,00 €
IDEK Funding: 195.630,00 €

The proposed research seeks to quantify the levels of dioxin in the ambient air under everyday conditions of the typical year in Cyprus, and to establish a correlation between dioxins and the chlorine content in fuels used for transportation. It will provide health professionals, consumers and policy makers with an essential tool for the pursuit of solutions to a problem which is not yet understood to its full extent. The research team involves two R&D technology leaders in Cyprus specializing in Energy, fuel and lubricant analyses (PO) and an environmental specialized laboratory (HO).
