  • Concentrations of air pollutants constant despite drop in emissions

    Concentrations of ozone and particulate matter, two harmful airborne pollutants, have not improved since 1997 despite substantial cuts in emissions of air pollutants across Europe, says a new EEA report, released today. Man-made emissions of all air pollutants fell substantially in the 32 EEA member countries the report says. This was mainly due to the effectiveness of EU policies limiting air ...

  • Emissions of air pollutants down in EU-27

    The European Community's air pollutant emission inventory report released today by the European Environment Agency finds that in 2007, sulphur oxides (SOx) emissions were down by 72 % from 1990 levels. The downward emission trend of three main pollutants which cause ground-level ozone continued in 2007: carbon monoxide (CO) fell by 57 %, non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) were down ...

  • Recession contributes to air pollutant emissions decrease in 2009

    Emissions of almost all main air pollutants fell across the EU-27 in 2009, according to the latest annual European Union air pollutant emission inventory report compiled by the European Environment Agency (EEA). Some pollutants decreased significantly compared to the previous year, with analysis showing economic recession to be an important factor in this reduction. The drop was most evident for ...

  • Diesel emergency generators made `greener` using emissions control technology

    In today’s “green” economy, there’s a dirty little secret hiding behind many hospitals, colleges and data storage centers. It’s the diesel emergency generator. Belching soot, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide, diesel exhaust created by back-up generators is a proven cause of cardiovascular and pulmonary health problems. The National Air Toxics Assessment estimates the cancer risk from ...


  • EPA proposes air permit for Capitol Power Plant

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking public comment on a proposed permit for the Capitol Power Plant in Washington, D.C. that would provide the facility with the flexibility to begin using more-efficient natural gas rather than coal as its main source of energy. The Capitol Power Plant was built in the early 1900’s and provides steam for heat and chilled water for cooling to ...

  • Northeast States Renew Call for Power Plant Emissions Cuts

    Reducing power plant emissions achieves fewer deaths, fewer respiratory and heart-related hospital admissions and emergency room visits, decreases in school absences, and higher worker productivity, a new study by the Ozone Transport Commission, OTC, has found.
