All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.
The transport of goods in Germany is often still carried out with climate-damaging diesel locomotives. This is to change in the future: Old diesel locomotives are to be replaced with more environmentally friendly ones.
In the journal Environmental Pollution, scientists have presented their research results on the effects of air pollution on insects. The result is not really surprising, but it is worrying.
Africa has had enough of dirty cars from industrialised countries. At least in Ghana, the import of old cars that are no longer roadworthy is prohibited.
Since mid-October 2020, the Jungfernstieg on Hamburg's Binnenalster has been closed to traffic. But many drivers still ignore this ban.
Sulphur dioxide is a colourless gas with a pungent odour. In high concentrations it is very harmful to humans, flora and fauna. Fortunately, however, sulphur dioxide emissions are steadily decreasing.
Last year, the development of pollutant emissions at 30 km/h was measured on five stretches of road in Berlin. A decrease in pollution was measured on these heavily frequented streets, only on Potsdamer Strasse no decrease could be detected. Now the 30 km/h zones could be abolished, but the transport senator has a different plan.
For years, the Tyrolean government has been denouncing that the Brenner Pass is too cheap for freight traffic. Now a study has confirmed that many trucks themselves take detours in order to use the cheap Brenner Pass. This causes congestion and traffic jams on the motorway.
With an intelligent traffic light assistant that informs when the next traffic light will turn green again, drivers need to stop at a red light much less often. Pollutant emissions can also be reduced in this way.
Nitrogen oxide (NOx) is a collective term for gaseous compounds, the most important of which are nitrogen monoxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Together with hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides are responsible for the formation of ozone. They also contribute to the formation of particulate matter.
In Baden-Württemberg, measures against particulate matter and nitrogen pollution in the air are taking effect. Ludwigsburg is the only exception.
