In the framework of the REMEDIO project, part of the Urban Transports Community, a publication entitled "Estimating Road Transport Pollutant Emissions Under Traffic-Congested Conditions with an Integrated Modelling Tool—Emissions Reduction Scenarios Analysis" has been published.

The scientific publication entitled "Estimating Road Transport Pollutant Emissions Under Traffic-Congested Conditions with an Integrated Modelling Tool—Emissions Reduction Scenarios Analysis" has been published (Springer) in May 2021 and is available at this link. This article has been written by Natalia Liora, Anastasia Poupkou, Serafim Kontos, Charikleia Meleti, Katerina Chrysostomou, Georgia Aifadopoulou, Stella Zountsa, Chrisostomos Kalogirou, Ricardo Chacartegui, Francesca Liguori, Massimo Bressan, Susana Marta Almeida and Dimitrios Melas.

It highlights the Integrated Modelling Tool (IMT), developed in the framework of the REMEDIO project, part of the Urban Transports Community, to support a transition for a low carbon mobility solution in the Mediterranean region. This is of particular interest to the Community which begins its mentoring program, including the replication of this particular tool (initially developed in Thessaloniki, Greece) in Irbid, Jordan.

The article investigates "the pollutant emissions due to road traffic under traffic-congested conditions at street level and the impacts on air quality of traffic emissions reduction scenarios by applying" by applying this tool. Overall, the IMT allowed to assess the environmental consequences of a more sustainable urban transportation model and a consequent road redesign.
