Event: Clean Air for All: Stepping up Joint Efforts to Fight Air Pollution in Europe (Brussels, 5 December 2018)

This timely international symposium will provide an invaluable opportunity to discuss current challenges related to air pollution and to reignite the debate over an EU-wide strategy to ensure cleaner air in Europe, while also enabling the delegates to analyse the role of clean technologies in improving air quality.  The symposium offers a platform for discussion on an improved European regulatory framework on air pollution; supports the exchange of ideas and encourages delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate.

Press Release: Climate action improves air quality, preventing deaths and helping us grow more food

A new study finds that the air quality improvements stemming from currently pledged energy and climate policies can prevent more than 71k premature deaths annually by 2030 and significantly increase agricultural crop yields.

Press Release: EEA report confirms: electric cars are better for climate and air quality

“Battery electric cars emit less greenhouse gases and air pollutants over their entire life cycle than petrol and diesel cars, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today. Promoting renewable energy and circular economy — including the shared use of vehicles and product design that supports reuse and recycling — will help maximise the benefits of shifting to electric vehicles.”

Press Release: Climate change: the human and economic outlook for Europeans

If warming rises more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels and no adequate adaptation measures are implemented, Europe is in danger of being exposed to more frequent and intense extreme weather conditions, which will also have significant economic impacts. This outlook is the result of a detailed assessment of the impact of climate change on Europe’s economy, society and environment made by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the Commission’s science and knowledge hub.

Stakeholder Press Release: NGVA Europe: Europe needs an open legislative framework to assess fuel solutions on fair terms

Brussels, 12 November 2018: Europe needs an open legislative framework where all solutions contributing to the decarbonization of the transport sector and achieving air quality goals can be assessed on fair terms.

To reach the 2030 targets currently under discussion, engine and vehicle technologies, in combination with low carbon and renewable gaseous fuels, will still have to play an important role in the heavy-duty sector. But the current CO2 tailpipe emissions methodology has to be complemented to consider the contribution from advanced bio and renewable gas.

Natural and renewable gas is an available fuel solution that is ready to play its role today. Renewable gas production is already standard practice, and its availability and vehicle fleet is growing fast.

Therefore, just before the European Parliament’s final vote on the regulation setting CO2 emissions standard for new heavy-duty vehicles, NGVA Europe urges for the inclusion of a new complementary approach.
