Creating clean air solutions for shipping and vehicles, while promoting public transportation and bicycles in urban areas to reduce traffic congestion and pollution
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that air pollution contributes to seven million premature deaths every year, and around 80 per cent of people living in urban areas are exposed to air pollution levels exceeding recommended limits. Transportation is a major source of air pollution, particularly in the growing cities, and measures must be taken to limit the negative consequences to public health. Denmark is leading the way in creating clean air solutions for shipping and vehicles while promoting public transportation and bicycles in urban areas to reduce traffic congestion and pollution.
We invite you to explore solutions related to clean air in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how clean air solutions can help solve your environmental issues.

Ambient air pollution is a rising global health challenge causing premature deaths of millions each year as well as representing a very high cost to societies globally. So what can be done to stop this development? Luckily, many solutions to help us tackle air pollution in different sectors already exist. Some of these are highlighted in State of Green’s new clean air white paper.
Clean air in cities, shipping, agriculture and industry production is a matter of global health. Consequently, this white paper highlights some of the best practice examples of Danish clean air solutions, which can be implemented in different sectors to reduce ambient air pollution.
Introducing The iEV X Series, Urban chic micro iEV, as the next step towards a sustainable revolutionary future where a clean and intelligent transportation system could be a reality. The iEV X with its futuristic robotic body platform is designed to change size based on your needs.
With a worldwide focus on reducing CO2 emitted into the atmosphere and eliminating harmful particle emission from the automotive industry, AIWAYS, a Shanghai-based personal mobility provider, has teamed up with the Danish developer and manufacturer of high-temperature methanol fuel cells, Blue World Technologies. The collaboration is based on AIWAYS’ overall goal to create the next generation of sustainable vehicles.
Worldwide, the climate is changing mainly due to too much CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. At the same time, 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air pollution exceeds WHO guideline limits resulting in 4.2 million premature deaths each year.
The next application round for P4G funding to partnerships with a sustainable business model is open. Funding of between USD 100,000 to USD 1,000,000 is available to either partnerships with a start-up or a scale-up concept.
The City of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Malmö Port and CPH City & Port Development have entered into a cooperation to get more green solutions in the Port of Copenhagen and to limit emissions from cruise ships. The first step is the design of an onshore power supply in the North Harbour.
210 mayors from a number of European cities representing 62 million citizens in total sent an open letter on Thursday urging the European Council and EU member states to commit to a long-term climate strategy with the objective of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.
New name, new style: The previously named HH Ferries Group, which operates the busy ferry route between the Danish and Swedish coastal towns of Helsingør and Helsingborg has not only changed its name to ForSea Ferries to reflect its environmental strategy, but has also officially launched its two long-awaited, solely battery-powered passenger ferries, which are the largest of their kind.
Bringing biking back to the people of Xiamen Xiamen Bicycle Skyway solves a pragmatic transport-related problem, accommodates the needs of the many and promotes bicycling. Xiamen Bicycle Skyway is the world’s longest bicycle bridge and China’s first suspended bicycle path on raised platforms. It is a safe and joyful experience to the citizens in Xiamen […]
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.
Haldor Topsoe has developed a technology that converts waste products into the clean fuel DME. The preferred fuel In the early 90’s, Topsoe researchers discovered that dimethyl ether (DME ) can be used as a fuel. DME has high energy efficiency with minimal environmental impact. The exhaust from vehicles running on DME is very clean, because the level […]
