News on environmental zones and air pollution

Truck pollution

According to Günther Lichtblau of the Austrian Ministry for the Environment, new generations of trucks (Euro 6) are more environmentally friendly than cars. Thanks to technological advances, new generations of engines are much less polluting. They emit much less fine particles and nitrogen oxide than cars. According to the expert, the concern for air pollution in cities would come from deliveries in urban areas of vehicles up to 3.5 tons.
