"We greatly appreciated the ability of the Particle Vision team to develop analytical and statistical methods that allowed us to better characterize fine dusts, their components and their origins. These methods will also be very useful in the future for analysing dust resulting from the abrasion of various metallic or mineral materials.

«Pleasant and very professional collaboration. State-of-the-art expertise, precious advice and passionate scientific discussions.»

Dr. Adeline Niquille - Head of Section, Air Protection, Canton of Vaud
«The Office for Nature and Environment (ANU) Graubünden has been working successfully with Particle Vision on several projects since 2014. In addition to the chemical and morphological composition of coarse and fine dust, as well as microparticles, the source contributions of dust particles could also be quantitatively determined thanks to the knowledge and technical equipment of Particle Vision. This has made it possible for the ANU Graubünden to verify the implementation of various measures in wood-burning and industrial activities. But also, in the case of dust disturbances the ANU Graubünden has been supported by Particle Vision, and it was possible to determine the sources of the dust pollution and their contributions to the dust. We can unreservedly recommend the cooperation with Particle Vision.»
Hanspeter Lötscher, ANU Graubünden
The Department of Air, Noise and Non-Ionizing Radiation (SABRA) / State of Geneva has called upon Particle Vision's expertise on several occasions to perform analyses on fine particles measured in the canton. These collaborations, which have highlighted Particle Vision's flexibility and professionalism, have enabled SABRA to obtain detailed information on fine particle emission sources and their composition.
