Title
Managing air quality in European Union
Author
Abstract
The main problems related to air pollution, currently facing the European Union (EU), can be identified in urban air quality, climate change, tropospheric ozone and acidification (atmospheric deposition). The policies and measures to control the emissions have been frequently offset by an contemporaneous increase of the activities producing the pollutants, particularly in the transport sector. But some important improvements have emerged in recent years, particularly in those aspects of the problem which have been recognized on time, where the policy of the interventions is very specifically targeted and the control technologies readily available. However further substantial reductions of all atmospheric emissions are needed to reach the current and new target levels for air quality and for exceedances of critical loads on ecosystems.
