Nitrogen dioxide – NO2

Processed data show that average annual concentrations of NO2 in excess of the limit value were seen in Skopje in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2006. In 2007-2008, the concentration of this pollutant fell.

In other cities, exceedances were recorded in Kumanovo in 2004 and in Kicevo in 2005. This was probably due to high traffic density and the operation of industrial facilities.

No exceedances were observed during 2007 and 2008 at any measuring point.
