Data Visualisation 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.

Data Plant-by-plant emissions of SO2, NOx and dust and energy input of large combustion plants covered by Directive 2001/80/EC
The Directive on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants (LCP Directive, 2001/80/EC) applies to combustion plants with a rated thermal input equal to or greater than 50 MW, irrespective of the type of fuel used (solid, liquid or gaseous)

Highlight EU to exceed nitrogen oxides emission ceiling, mostly due to road transport
The EU-27 and its Member States must meet legally binding limits for four air pollutants set by the National Emission Ceilings Directive (NEC Directive) to protect human health and the environment. The annual status report released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA) shows that while EU-27 emissions for three air pollutants are projected to meet the ceilings, nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions for the EU-27 as a whole will exceed its ceiling by 17 %. Ten Member States expect to miss their respective NOx ceilings.
