Pan-European air pollution treaty celebrated

Celebrations were held on 1 Dec 2004 in Geneva to mark the 25th anniversary of the convention on long-range transboundary air pollution (CLRTAP).
Coordinated by the UN economic commission for Europe (Unece), the treaty is credited with significantly cutting acidifying pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. It now extends to ozone, heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
