EU council to discuss air quality

Next week the European Council will be meeting to discuss air quality issues. The EU considers air quality to be a priority and aims at balancing economic growth with efforts to protect the environment Towards this aim it has set a number of challenging targets for reductions in carbon emissions and waste, and increases in energy efficiency and in the proportion of renewable energy.

Air quality studies in Malta, published by MEPA, show that the main issues relate to transport emissions and to atmospheric dust, such as the Sahara dust. Construction waste is also a problem.

Minister for sustainable energy Leo Brincat will be attending the meeting, which will be held in Dublin next week.
