Around the world particulate air pollution represents one of the most urgent problems in environmental health. Numerous epidemiological studies have shown that human health and well-being are substantially impacted by elevated levels of airborne particulate matter (PM) [6–8]. This is well documented, starting with the classical work on the air-pollution-related death toll of the London smog episode in 1952 [1, 2] and the famous six cities study in the USA [3–5] which investigated the influence of ambient particle levels in several polluted US cities on the life expectancy of their inhabitants. Moreover, a meta-analysis of epidemiological data and the measured mass concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM10, i.e. particles with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 10 μm) in Europe by the Clean Air For Europe (CAFE) steering group of the European Commission  yielded eye-opening results that generated a colour-coded map of Europe, depicting the estimated loss of life expectancy in
