Key assessment

Total ozone precursor emissions have been reduced in most Member States. For EU15 emissions have been reduced by 30% between 1990 and 2001. The decrease between 2000 and 2001 was 1.6%. Road transport is the dominant source of ozone precursors and contributes to 39% of total emissions in 2001. Other sources, including commercial and domestic combustion and use of solvents in paint, glue and printing also contributed significantly in 2001.
