TO CLEAN

UP THE AIR

400,000

PREMATURE DEATHS

Each year, there are more than 400.000 premature deaths due to air pollution – the biggest environmental risk to health in the EU.

Particulate matter (PM) and nitrous oxides (NOx) pose the highest health risk. They are mainly generated by the combustion of heating oil and solid fuels in heating appliances and by diesel vehicles.

  TIGHTEN EU AIR QUALITY STANDARDS

  Align EU limits in the Ambient Air Quality Directives to World Health Organisation guidelines.

  PROMOTE ‘HEALTH IN ALL POLICIES’

  Carefully assess the impact on air quality of all energy and transport policy proposals.

  Monitor national implementations of the Clean Energy Package, ensuring that they lead to air quality improvements.

  CONTINUE SUPPORT FOR ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORT FUELS

  Speed up the implementation of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive.

  Ensure recognition of the benefits of alternative fuels in all EU transport policy proposals.

Maintain the key principle of technology neutrality, as the best way to promote the uptake of all available solutions, innovation and R&D

HOW CAN LPG HELP?

When it is used as a heating fuel, boilers relying on LPG emit

80-99% less PM and
50-75% less NOx

than solid and liquid fuels boilers. (such as coal, heating oil, peat and biomass).

LPG’s environmental benefits in the transport sector are recognised by EU legislation, which grants it the status of an alternative fuel. LPG cars have almost zero pollutant emissions. In fact, in real driving emmisions, they emit

98% less NOx than diesel cars and 90% less PM than gasoline cars

Having a strong infrastructure network, LPG is readily available almost anywhere in the EU and a perfect solution to start cleaning up the air today.
