Air pollution - Outlook 2020 (Poland)
- Air pollution
By 2020, the actions in the area of atmosphere protection should have significant effects in reduced concentrations of airborne pollutants, which in turn should reduce the exposure of the population to excessive concentrations of pollutants and the incidence of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Forecasts for PM2.5 pollution show that by 2020 the population of Poland should not be exposed to concentrations in excess of the permissible level of 25 mg/m3 (Fig. 8).
Taking into account the current state of air pollution in Poland and the need to maintain the air quality and cleanliness standards established by Directive 2008/50/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 May 2008 on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe and the limits for large combustion sources, Poland is set to implement numerous undertakings to improve the air quality.
