  • Evaluating the impact of air quality measures is essential

    Recent research has investigated the effectiveness of air quality management at the regional level in Italy and found that some of the most commonly adopted measures do not always produce the highest emissions reductions. Italian air quality legislation was reformed in 1999 in order to comply with the 1996 European Air Quality Framework Directive1. At the time, the 20 Italian administrative ...

  • Multi-pollutant approach needed to halt soil degradation

    A new study highlights the need for new policies to stop the rise of nitrogen oxide emissions in China. The researchers suggest that the positive impact of policies to reduce sulphur dioxide emissions are not enough in themselves to avoid soil acidification, as they will be outweighed over the next decade by the impact of nitrogen emissions. Soil acidification is a type of soil degradation that ...

  • Waters acidified by air pollution have recovered as predicted

    Back in 1999, a group of scientists predicted how changing air pollution levels would affect the acidity of lakes and rivers in Europe in 2010 using a computer model. A follow up study has now gathered actual measurements of these waters to see if the predictions came true. The observations show that most of the rivers and lakes did recover from acidification, as forecast by the model, and ...

  • China closes 235 power stations

    The Chinese government has announced that in the last year it has closed 235 small coal-fired power stations. It had been determined that their production was too low in relation to the high volume of emissions. The total production of these power stations was about 9030 MW. According to the state Council's statement, referenced by the online portal www.finanzen.net, these measures ...


  • EU meets most international air pollutant emissions limits, further cuts possible

    Many air pollutant emissions are below internationally agreed limits, except nitrogen oxides, according to a European Environment Agency report released today. Emissions of three air pollutants, including fine particulate matter, are only slightly above targets to be met in 2020. Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are mainly caused by traffic, although this pollutant is also emitted by industrial ...

  • South Africa – Durban reinforces its air quality surveillance network

    Two brand new and modern air quality monitoring stations have joined the network already established in the South Durban Basin. The South Durban Basin, located on the eastern seaboard of South Africa, has a mix of heavy industrial activity and residential settlements in close proximity. Two brand new and modern air quality monitoring stations based on Environnement S.A pollution monitoring ...

  • Shore side electricity: key policy recommendations for uptake

    A new study quantifies the economic and environmental potential of powering docked ships in European ports using local electricity networks. The authors give key recommendations on policy actions to enable implementation in European harbours. Shipping is a large and growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. One billion tonnes are emitted each year worldwide and they comprised 4% of total EU ...

  • Arctic melting opens sea route to more pollution

    As Arctic sea ice continues to melt at an alarming rate, maritime traffic is set to increase − and with it the pollution emitted by ships’ engines. A paper published by the  ...

  • Production and imports of fluorinated greenhouse gases fall in the EU

    Production of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) decreased by 5% within the EU in 2011, compared with 2010, when measured in absolute, metric tonnes, according to a recent report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). Imports and sales of these powerful greenhouse gases (GHGs) also fell, by 6% and 12% respectively, ...

  • Satellite data improve aviation safety

    Thousands of planes are grounded across Europe due to the spread of volcanic ash following the recent eruption under Iceland's Eyjafjallajoekull glacier. Volcanic eruptions eject large amounts of ash and trace gases such as sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere, often reaching the altitudes of scheduled flights. When flying through a volcanic ash cloud, ash particles enter the jet engines which can ...

  • Air pollution linked to increased incidents of stroke

    Exposure to gaseous and particulate matter pollution have been found to increase the immediate risk of stroke, a review of medical studies has shown. The increased risk is most pronounced the same day as the exposure, and for fine particles the increased risk persists over several days. The authors hope information from this study will help policymakers to develop suitable controls to limit the ...

  • Archival and cultural preservation facilities require an ambient Indoor Air Environment.

    Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is a significant issue in Libraries, museums and archival collections, due mainly to the fact that many compounds, as well as unsuitable temperature and humidity has a deteriorating affect on many valuable and precious items stored in these buildings. Control of temperature and relative humidity is critical in the preservation of library and archival collections ...

  • New European register gives public access to information on emissions from European industrial facilities

    The European Commission and the European Environment Agency today launched a comprehensive new European pollutant release and transfer register – E-PRTR. The register contains information about the emissions of pollutants to air, water and land by industrial facilities throughout Europe. It includes annual data for 91 substances and covers more than 24 000 facilities in 65 economic activities. It ...

  • Marchwood Scientific new range of services for biodegradable waste

    Marchwood Scientific Services Ltd (MSSL) the independent Dioxin testing laboratory near Southampton has now extended its package of testing services for biodegradable wastes.

These targets state that by 2010, only 75% of the 1995 quantity of ...

  • Composition of particulate matter influences its long-term health effects

    A link between particulate matter (PM) exposure and inflammatory disease has been shown by many studies, but few have explored how the chemical composition of PM influences inflammatory processes. This study investigated the connection between different components of PM and markers of inflammation in the blood, finding that long-term exposure to transition metals, emitted by traffic and industry, ...
