Fireworks: a particulate matter show!

Yesterday was the French national day. Besides the military parade, fireworks are also a tradition. Unfortunately, they are also a cause for particulate matter emissions. According to a study of Airparif one can measure a particulate matter peak over 350µg/m³ during the shows. Therefore, private fireworks are forbidden. If this were the case once on 14.07, a revolution would break out again!
