This autumn, the European Union (EU) Parliament will have a crucial vote on the future of air pollution policy in Europe. For discussion is a commission proposal for new national emission ceilings, as amended by the European Parliament Environment Committee in July, 2015. The proposed emission ceilings cover not only emissions of primary, directly emitted particulate matter but also emissions from precursor gases. These gases include ammonia, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, which react in the atmosphere to form solid (particulate) ammonium sulphates and nitrates.
