Strategic Plan NOx. Analysis of the evolution of air quality in the territory of the Metropolitan Region of Barcelona

Emission levels of pollutants in the atmosphere

This project is a detailed quantification of emissions of NOx, particulates and other pollutants and simulate air quality in different scenarios. We analyze the root causes of air pollution in the metropolis of Barcelona and makes proposals for air quality standards that regulation imposes.

The work has involved various simulations, in particular those relating to the current and future mobility in both private and collective transportation in the Metropolitan Region of Barcelona.

We analyzed the release of the emissions in four scenarios for the current situation, in a baseline scenario using the measures undertaken by the plan and others that are inferred from the European regulations and state and, finally, two scenarios that also include baseline measures, other measures in order to reduce air pollution below the legislated thresholds.
