AMBOS NBGO CHALLENGES THE AIR REMEDIATION PLAN FOR THE ANTWERP AGGLOMERATION

Ambos NBGO assists stRaten-generaal and author Jeroen Olyslaegers in their lawsuit regarding the air remediation plan for the air quality zone "agglomeration Antwerp".

For many years, exceedances of the European limit values for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) have been measured in the Antwerp conurbation. For this reason, in accordance with Article 23 of the Ambient Air Quality Directive 2008/50/EC an air remediation plan had to be drawn up in order to comply with European air quality standards as soon as possible.

However, the air remediation plan submitted by the Flemish Government to the European Commission at the end of December is intended to reach European standards only in 2030, and at certain bottlenecks exceedances will continue to exist even then.
