Euro VI standards for heavy-duty vehicles will benefit local air quality

Newsitem | 28-01-2008

The Euro VI proposal of the European Commission specifies the new emission standards for trucks and busses. In the Netherlands, the Euro VI emission standards will lead to local improvements in air quality with respect to nitrogen dioxide (NO2), particulate matter (PM10) and the finer fraction of particulate matter (PM2.5). Compared to other measures, Euro VI is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve air quality near motorways.
