Air protection

Significant reductions have been achieved in recent decades for most emissions of air pollutants. Emissions from large industrial sources have been reduced by more than 80 per cent for SO2 and halved for NOx. This is partly the result of the shutting down of obsolete industrial installations, and predominantly the result of applying modern emission abatement techniques and control measures to reduce emissions. NOx reduction was partly compensated for by increased emissions due to the growth of road transport. Emissions of ammonia (NH3) have decreased although the economic output of the agricultural sector was more or less stable. Other emissions are more or less stable or slowly declining.
