The European Environmental Agency has published the European annual air quality study, EEA Signals 2020, where it alerts that the levels of pollution in many European cities continue exceeding the legal limits set by the EU and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to protect people’s Health. According to statistics, each year about 400,000 European citizens die as a result of poor quality air.
Air pollution is the number one cause of premature death due to environmental factors in Europe but the economic impact is also important: medical costs are increased and economic productivity is decreased as a result of the poor health of workers.
The quality of the air we breathe has been one of the main concerns in recent years: before COVID-19, 9 out of every 10 people were not satisfied with the air they breathe. Currently, this dissatisfaction has also become a concern. Today more than ever, our society needs to be assured that sufficient measures are being taken to prevent risks and diseases transmitted through aerosols.
