Air pollution - Outlook 2020 (Luxembourg)
- Air pollution
Although emissions of SO2, NMVOC and NH3 (ammonia) are expected to decrease further in the future with the introduction of new European legislation, it remains to be seen whether this will also apply to NOx emissions. Although more stringent European emission standards for mobile sources have recently been put in place, or are planned for the future, they will not necessarily reduce NOx emissions from the transport sector, as actual emission measurements have shown that the previous European emission standards did not bring about the anticipated reduction.
