Press Release Europe's cities still suffering from harmful air pollution
Air pollution in Europe comes with a high price tag, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). While policies have improved air quality overall, air pollution is still the main environmental health hazard, resulting in high costs for health care systems, unhealthy workers and an estimated 400 000 premature deaths in Europe in 2011.

Figure Emissions of primary PM2.5 and PM10 particulate matter (EEA member countries)
This chart shows past emission trends of primary PM2.5 and PM10 particulate matter, 1990-2010. The EU-27 2020 Gothenburg emission target is also depicted in the chart.

Figure Percentage change in PM2.5 and PM10 emissions 1990-2010 (EEA member countries)
The reported change in primary PM2.5 and PM10 particulate matter for each country, 1990-2010. The EU27 2020 Gothenburg national emission ceilings are also depicted in the chart.

Figure Contribution to total change in PM10 emissions for each sector between 1990 and 2010 (EEA member countries)
The contribution made by each sector to the total change in primary PM10 particulate matter emission between 1990 and 2010.

Figure Annual mean particulate matter (PM10) 2010, based on daily average with percentage of valid measurements ≥ 75 % in μg/m3
The red dots indicate stations reporting exceedances of the 2005 annual limit value (40 μg/m3), as set out in the Air Quality Directive. The orange dots indicate stations reporting exceedances of a statistically derived level (31 μg/m3) corresponding to the 24–hour limit value, as set out in the Air Quality Directive. The pale green dots indicate stations reporting exceedances of the WHO air quality guideline for PM10 of less than 20 μg/m3 but not in exceedance of limit values as set out in the Air Quality Directive. The dark green dots indicate stations reporting concentrations below the WHO air quality guideline for PM10 and implicitly below the limit values as set out in the Air Quality Directive.

Figure 36th highest 24-hour mean PM10 concentration observed at (sub)urban background stations; compliance is assured when this value is below 50 ug/m3, 2001-2011 (EU-27)
Only urban and sub-urban background monitoring stations have been included in the calculations. Data for Greece and Malta are not included due to missing availability of operational urban and sub-urban background monitoring stations in the Urban Audit cities.

Figure Contribution of different sectors (energy and non-energy) to total emissions of PM10 and PM2.5, 2009, EEA-32
The graph includes the combined emissions of primary PM10 particles (particulate matter with a diameter of 10 μm or less, emitted directly into the atmosphere).
