Launch of a new European anti-air pollution strategy The European Commission wants to reduce air pollution more in Europe. Although the situation has improved substantially over the last few decades, there are still significant areas of concern with regard to certain pollutants that are particularly harmful to human health (respiratory diseases) and damaging to the environment (acidification, eutrophication, etc.). The anti-pollution programme that the Commission is presenting today is the result of the “Clean Air for Europe” or CAFE programme that it launched in May 2001. Formation and impact of particles in the cross- channel region The story told in this film is that of a huge study carried out between 2002 and 2005 on air pollution in the cross-Channel area covering Nord-Pas de Calais, Sussex and Kent. Coordinated by the Université du Littoral of Boulogne-sur-Mer as part of the European Interreg III programme, its main objective is to identify the sources and impact of air pollution in the region. One of the lessons drawn from this study is that it established the seriousness of the impact of particles on human health, particularly of those particles that show a volatile organic compound deposit characteristic of emissions caused by the petrochemical industry and by car transport in Dunkirk and its suburbs. The toxicological section of this study showed the lethal impact of these particles on human pulmonary cells. For further information: http://www.univ-littoral.fr/rech/prog_euro/inte_3a.htm In addition to interviews with the people responsible for this research project, the film also contains interviews with Stavros Dimas, European Commissioner for the Environment; Dr Michal Krzyzanowski, with responsibility for air quality at the World Health Organisation.
