EUropean PHOtoREactor 

CEAM's Atmospheric Chemistry group simulation chambers

The European PHOtoREactor was designed by a consortium of 7 research institutes from 4 countries within the EU. 

The main objectives of the Atmospheric Chemistry area:

  1. Investigation into the photochemical degradation of atmospheric pollutants and study of generated products which present a potential risk for health and environment.

  2. Database development with international projection,

  3. Validation and implementation of photochemical models. 

  4. Development and validation of new instrumentation, as well as improvement of the already existing one 

  5. Exploitation of the EUPHORE smog chambers, for the development of research projects managed by the Foundation, as well as for other national and international institutions. 

The scientific activity of the Foundation is articulated in four research programmes: Atmospheric Pollution, Air Pollutant Effect, Forest Research and Meteorology-Climatology.
