Highlight Ozone and particulates most serious air quality problems in Europe
Air quality in Europe has improved between 1990 and 2009, as emissions of most pollutants have fallen, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). But there is still a lot of room for improvement, as many EU countries are expected to exceed the emissions ceilings in 2010 for at least one pollutant. In addition, concentration levels of ground-level ozone and particulate matter have remained stable over recent years despite efforts to improve air quality.

Figure Decoupling of heavy metals emission in water from gross value added in metal industry in Europe between 2004 and 2009
The chart displays changes in emission of heavy metals from metal industry in water (expressed in kg of heavy metals equivalents) and in production of metal industry (expressed as the gross value added GVA, in millions Euro) in Europe between 2004 and 2009. See Methodology section for more details.

Figure Historic series in spent fuel arising (tonnes heavy metals)
The figure shows the historical series of arising spent fuel . Arising amounts of spent fuel depend primarily on the amount of power produced, but also to a large extent on the type of reactor, level of fuel enrichment, fuel burnup and power plant net electric efficiency.

Highlight Water: nutrient and heavy metal pollution 'decoupling' from growth
European households are generating lower levels of nutrient pollution in water, despite a growing population. In a similar example of 'absolute decoupling', levels of some pollutants from agriculture and manufacturing have fallen in recent years, while the economic production of these sectors has grown.

Publication Air quality in Europe — 2013 report
This report presents an overview and analysis of air quality in Europe from 2002 to 2011. It reviews progress towards meeting the requirements of the air quality directives and gives an overview of policies and measures introduced at European level to improve air quality and minimise impacts. An overview of the latest findings and estimates of the effects of air pollution on health and its impacts on ecosystems is also given.
