Pollution caused by transport is one of the major contributors to poor air quality in cities, despite in European countries a tendency of emission decline started for this sector.
Emissions from vehicles include carbon monoxide (CO), unburned hydrocarbons (HC), volatile organic compounds (VOC), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). In addition to these pollutants, vehicles are one of the major sources of carbon dioxide (CO2) and black carbon (BC) that contribute to climate change. On top of that, the use of fossil fuels for transportation increases a country’s dependence on oil and its derived.
