Figure Distance-to-target for EEA member countries
The distance-to-target indicator shows how current emissions compare to a linear emission reduction 'target-path' between 1990 emission levels and the 2010 emission ceiling for each country. Negative percentage values indicate the current emissions in a country are below the linear target path; positive values show that current emission lie above a linear target path to 2010.

Publication Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging technologies' in the portfolio of available mitigation actions for stabilising concentrations of atmospheric CO2, the main greenhouse gas (GHG).

Daviz Visualization Progress by EU Member States in meeting the emission ceilings set in the EU NEC Directive
The NEC Directive covers four main air pollutants: sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) and ammonia (NH3). These pollutants can cause respiratory problems, contribute to the acidification of soil and surface water, and damage vegetation.

Figure Percentage of population resident in urban areas potentially exposed to SO2 concentration levels exceeding the daily limit value, EEA member countries, 1997-2007
The limit value is 125 µg SO2/m3 as a daily mean, not to be exceeded more than three days in a year. Over the years 1997-2007 the total population for which exposure estimates are made, increases from 56 to 101 million people due to an increasing number of monitoring stations reporting under the Exchange of Information Decision.
