“In the three-year period 2018-20, Lombardy achieved an important reduction in polluting emissions into the atmosphere. The data show that the measures put in place by the Region are effective “. This was stated by the Regional Councilor for the Environment and Climate, Raffaele Cattaneo, commenting on the three-year monitoring data on the state of implementation of the PRIA (Regional Intervention Plan for Air Quality). According to reports from Palazzo Lombardia, nitrogen oxides (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5) have recorded higher reductions than expected. “These data – explains the commissioner Cattaneo – confirm that we are in line with the objective of the Regional Intervention Plan for the quality of the air to be within the limits by 2025 “. Cattaneo recalls that” only in 2021 the Lombardy Region has incentivized with 53 million euro for the replacement of the most polluting vehicles: 48 million for the tender addressed to citizens for the replacement of zero or very low emission cars for a total of 15,382 applications “.
In 2020, the Region said, the limit value on the annual average was respected throughout the Region. In the city of Milan, for example, the worst data was found at the Milano Senato station with 36 µg / m3, against the regulatory limit value of 40 µg / m3. The 2017 average in the worst station in Milan city was equal to 40 µg / m3, 42 in 2015 and gradually worsening up to annual averages 56 in 2006.
