Transportation and mobility in cities have consequences. If we are to maintain an acceptable urban environment as traffic increases, we need to pay attention to the quality of the air. This means gathering and analysing environmental statistics and quantifying traffic-related pollution in order to influence driving behaviour and make better informed transport choices.

Since the early nineties, traffic-related pollution has been a major issue in traffic and urban planning. Municipalities prepare action programmes on traffic and the environment, and authorities carry out environmental impact assessments of infrastructure projects for public transport, bikes etc.

Air quality and energy

Individual heating may have severe consequences for the air quality in particular solid fuel or even gas boilers in cities with critical atmospheric conditions. Therefore including urban planning of district heating is one of the most efficient measures to improve air quality in most cities. Besides replacing many small stacks with few large and taller stacks, flue gas treatment and energy efficient production technologies like large scale CHP can be introduced.

Reducing air pollution from energy and traffic are two ways of improving air quality in most cities. There are many ways to improve the energy and traffic infrastructure in the spatial planning and to introduce Flue Gas Treatment.
