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.
Three supplemental reports have also been produced focusing on Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Ozone (O3) and Particulates (PM2.5 and PM10).

Euro 7/VII Under the Microscope
In this paper we bring the key findings of a series of air quality studies together and examine them through the lens of the overall European Air Quality policy making process, including the consistent application of the Principle of Proportionality enshrined in the EU Treaty itself. Hence the title, “Euro 7/VII under the microscope”
ACEA and Aeris Europe held two joint webinars on the 24th & 29th March 2021 showcasing the tools and key results. The presentations from the webinar can be downloaded below.
