Danes publish costing of particle pollution

Every kilogram of fine particles emitted in Denmark is costing the economy DKr140-2,000 (€19-269) in health costs, according to a study by national environmental research institute Neri. The study updates earlier work, not only by using Danish prices to more accurately compute benefits of reduced pollution but also by modelling impacts from pollution by the tiniest PM2.5 particles rather than larger PM10. The research was carried out in the framework of the EU ExternE programme, which aims at calculating environmental externalities of pollution in monetary terms (EED 21/10/02). See Neri report.
