Air pollutant emission 2010 limits exceeded in twelve EU Member States; road transport NOx a main factor

Green Car Congress

The road transport sector is one of the main contributory factors behind the large number of NO x exceedances, contributing approximately 40% of total EU-27 NO x emissions. Three EEA member countries which are not part of the EU (Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) have similar emissions ceilings for 2010 set under the Gothenburg Protocol of the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) Convention.

EEA TERM Report Finds Efficiency Gains of Clean Vehicle Technology Being Offset By Ongoing Increases in Travel

Green Car Congress

None of the EEA scenarios considered delivered the targeted reduction in transport GHG emissions. Based on analysis of long-term trends, a new European Environment Agency (EEA) report calls for a clear vision defining Europe’s transport system by 2050 and consistent policies to achieve it. On its tenth anniversary, the EEA’s TERM report presents an overview of transport’s impact on the environment, built on an analysis of 40 policy-relevant indicators.
