Twelve member states exceed NOx ceilings
Earlier analysis by the European Environment Agency that twelve member states exceed the limits of the NEC Directive is now confirmed by the countries’ own preliminary data for 2010. NOx is the recurring problem for all countries that exceed emission ceilings. Three countries also fail with additional emission ceilings: Spain (NMVOC and NH3), Germany (NMVOCs) and Finland (NH3). Final data for 2010 will be reported by the end of this year.
