Report highlights Poland's particulate challenge
Poland's environmental protection inspectorate has confirmed that the country is not ready to meet EU norms on fine particles (PM10) that took effect on 1 January. A report on air quality and health implications in 2003 concludes that levels of air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and benzene were within legal limits in 60% of 362 geographical zones. The report also measured air quality in terms of its impact on plants, but it indicated no major problems. See Polish environmental protection inspectorate and the report.
