New EU Directive on Ambient Air Quality in Europe


New EU Directive on Ambient Air Quality

In April 2024, the European Parliament and Council adopted a new directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe, which mandates Black Carbon measurements.

Key Points of the Directive:

  • Stricter Air Quality Standards: New standards target the reduction of greenhouse gases, including CO2 and Black Carbon.
  • Monitoring Emerging Pollutants: Focuses on ultrafine particles, ammonia, and the oxidative potential of particulate matter.
  • Monitoring Supersites: Each Member State will establish urban and rural supersites to measure pollutants such as PM10, PM2.5, NO2, O3, BC, NH3, and ultrafine particles.

This directive necessitates the installation of advanced monitoring equipment, presenting new business opportunities. We encourage you to integrate this directive and our recognitions into your marketing and sales strategies.
