Air quality 2020

Preliminary evaluation


The publication describes the preliminary status of German air quality in 2020. Regarding PM (particulate matter) the reduction of pollution has continued. Consistently to this development, there are hardly any exceedances of the EU annul limit value for nitrogen dioxide (NO2). And there was less ozone pollution than in both previous years. The second part of the reports deals with the influence of the measures to contain the Corona pandemic in Germany and Europe, as well. Therefore, assessments of the German Federal states, the German Weather Service and the European Environment Agency and the UBA have been included.
