Article How much does industrial air pollution cost Europe?
Air pollution has negative impacts on human health and the environment, and industry is one of the main contributors to air pollution in Europe. How do we estimate the costs of industrial air pollution on society? What do the numbers tell us? We asked these questions to Martin Adams, who leads the group working on air pollution, transport and noise at the European Environment Agency.

Infographic Many factors contribute to air pollution concentration levels
Emission levels are not the only factor that determines concentrations of air pollutants. Factors like the weather, chemical transformations in the air, and transport of pollutants from outside Europe all play a role. This means that a reduction in emissions of a pollutant do not always translate to an equivalent reduction in concentrations of that pollutant.

EEA activities
The EEA is the European Union's air pollution data centre. The EEA supports the implementation of a number of EU Directives linked to air emissions and air quality. The EEA also contributes to the evaluation of EU air pollution policies and to the development of long-term strategies to improve air quality in Europe. The EEA's work focuses on documenting and assessing air emissions and air quality trends and related policies and measures in Europe.
