The air implementation pilot project
The Air Implementation Pilot was a project undertaken jointly by the EEA and the European Commission. It was one of two pilot projects (the other one relates to waste management) called for by Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik at the June 2011 meeting of the EEA Management Board. Both projects sought to explore an enhanced role for the EEA in supporting the implementation of the European Union’s environment policy.

Publication The application of models under the European Union's Air Quality Directive: A technical reference guide
This technical reference guide provides a general overview of the use of models with regard to the consolidated Directive 2008/50/EC on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe (the AQ Directive). This report is an output of the Forum for Air Quality Modelling in Europe (Fairmode) established in 2008 as a joint action of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC).

Publication The contribution of transport to air quality - TERM 2012: Transport indicators tracking progress towards environmental targets in Europe
TERM 2012 presents the most relevant and up to date information on the main issues regarding transport and environment in Europe, particularly in areas with specific policy targets such as greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, transport demand levels, noise and other issues. It also offers an overview of the transport sector's impact on air pollutant emissions and air quality. It discusses the contributions made by all modes of transport to direct air pollutant emissions and also to 'secondary' air pollutants formed in the atmosphere. Alongside the recently published Air quality in Europe - 2012 report, TERM 2012 aims to inform the European Commission’s review of the Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution.
