Reducing Air Pollution at ACE

More than 80 per cent of the six million people living in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) live within 500 metres of a major road, putting them at greater risk from the health-related effects of vehicle emissions. A study by Toronto Public Health estimates traffic-related air pollution in the region causes more than 700 premature deaths and 2,800 hospitalizations due to heart and lung conditions each year. On March 27 and 28, Guelph, Ontario-based Envision SQ used the extreme weather and solar array capabilities of ACE's climatic wind tunnel at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) to test its new cost-effective solution designed to mitigate the GTA’s air pollution problems.
