EURO 7 IMPACT ASSESSMENT: THE OUTLOOK FOR AIR QUALITY COMPLIANCE IN THE EU AND THE ROLE OF THE ROAD TRANSPORT SECTOR
This study quantifies the impact on measured air quality in urban environments throughout the EU between 2020 and 2035 from the implementation of currently mandated emission reduction measures in all contributing sectors, including road transport.
The effect of these measures on atmospheric concentrations of NO2, PM2.5, PM10 and Ozone at urban monitoring stations has been modelled and the impact on compliance with current EU legislated and WHO guideline values is explored.
Although the main focus of the study is road transport, by including emissions from all source sectors the contribution from each sector can be evaluated to provide an overall EU air quality perspective.
The additional impact on air quality from a series of scenarios that might additionally reduce road transport emissions (if this were the only regulatory measure) is also explored.
