Without air quality standards that are in line with the World Health Organisation’s recommendations, the EU sees over 400,000 premature deaths every year caused by air pollution. It is estimated that the health costs associated to this are between €330 billion and €940 billion. Furthermore, mercury emissions from incinerated solid recovered fuels are a major source of environmental concerns.
ECOS will work to limit the negative impacts of poor air quality through the development of robust automated measurement methods and monitoring standards to safeguard citizens’ health and protect the environment.

Standardisation requests from the European Commission and EFTA
