The JRC tool for screening for high emission reduction potential on air (SHERPA) was used to model PM2.5 concentrations in the main cities in the Danube macro-region.
Feb 06 2017

JRC scientists evaluated sources of air pollutants in the Danube macro-region, a necessary step for the design of action plans to improve air quality. The study showed residential heating contributed up to 35% of PM2.5 pollution in the main cities in the Danube macro-region, followed by agriculture (up to 32%), energy production and industry (up to 30%) and transport (up to 25%).
