Air Quality: Nitrogen Dioxide

The family of nitrogen oxides (particularly Nitrogen Dioxide, or NO2) is among the leading atmospheric pollutants.  NO2 has been found to have effects on respiratory conditions and lung function.

Road transport makes up 38% of all nitrogen oxides pollution (and far more in urban areas)… yet the number of licensed cars increased by 24% between 2000 and 2015.

Nitrogen Oxides are the only pollutant group where the UK fails to meet EU standards.
