Particulate Matter and Energy Policies
The potential contribution of RE in air pollution abatement have been identified by various study (Boudri et al, 2002) (Mohibullah et al, 2006) especially in the area of CO2, SO2 or CH4. However there is limited study on the area of PM, which has the short duration on health impact.
To reduce PM from RE perspective can be seen as:
1. Replace the fossil fuel with RE (power plant, stove, vehicle)
2. Build new RE
