  • Towards a common air quality assessment method

    Air pollution indices are tools that can be used to compare air quality in different geographical regions. In a new study, researchers evaluated the 'BC indices', primarily designed to assess health risks from particular pollutants over a given time and space, to compare air quality in Italy, Germany and Poland. The indices could be useful for policy makers developing pollution control ...

  • Air quality health impact assessments should use combination of metrics

    Health impact assessments (HIAs) provide information on the potential health impacts of policies, and are important for developing regulation on air pollution. In this study, researchers evaluated the metrics currently used in air quality HIAs to provide recommendations for their use in policy. Clean air is important for human and environmental health. Over recent decades however air ...

  • CERC carries out an air quality assessment for a proposed new section of ‘Quietway`

  • Ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe

    Air pollution is caused by the emission to the atmosphere of certain substances which, alone or through chemical reaction, can damage human health and/or the environment. Air pollution is both a local and a transboundary problem as emissions from one country can travel large distances in the atmosphere and cause adverse effects in other countries. The single pollutants causing most damage to ...
