What is a ZBE zone?
The ZBE zones (Zona Baixes Emissions), are fixed zones that can be identified by traffic signs. They are designed to reduce air pollution in Spanish cities quickly and permanently.
A permanent ZBE zone is a zone in which permanent and fixed traffic restrictions apply, such as speed limits and other restrictions, and in which entry is regulated by a system of stickers. Furthermore, in the course of the next few years, stickers may be gradually removed from the system, so that vehicles with these stickers will no longer be able to enter the zones.
How do I recognize the low emission zone?
Are there other low emission zones in France?

Apart from the traditional feud with Cologne, Düsseldorf's soul is currently not as excited as the environmental footprints that have been active in the state capital since Easter 2019.
Today in NRW and other parts of Germany the so-called fifth season begins: Carnival. If you look to Stuttgart at the moment, you might think that here too, the Jecken have taken over the town hall in carnival tradition.
The citizens of Frankfurt are eagerly awaiting the reopening of the Mainkai these days.
Darmstadt has installed a comprehensive sensor network within its city limits, which measures and controls environmental pollution.
It sounds like the setting of a science fiction film: car-free city centres, vegetable and fruit gardens on the roofs of residential buildings, streets interspersed with green spaces.
Among the most devastating climate pests, the car takes third place. Traffic is therefore one of the main factors in climate change, and the CO2 emitted by the combustion engine must be permanently reduced.
The news hit like a bomb yesterday, and the effects could be far-reaching for other cities and municipalities: Leipzig passes judgement on driving ban in Reutlingen.
Green-Zones not only wants to provide information and offer solutions with the environmental stickers or app. We want to get to the bottom of the problem. Where others only report facts, we put our heart into it!
Environmental zones and environmental tracks are currently hanging like a sword of Damocles over several municipalities and cities in Germany. After the displeasure about the three already installed environmental tracks is growing in Düsseldorf, last week the representatives of the cities of Bonn and Dortmund reached an out-of-court (for the time being) agreement with Deutsche Umwelthilfe in Münster, Westphalia.
For 25 years now, the air quality index of the “Atmo France” institute has not changed. This index therefore does not take into account certain pollutants or PM2.5, although scientists consider the smaller particles more dangerous than its “big brother” PM10. According to the WHO, pollution due to the particles of PM2.5 should not exceed 10µ/m³ per year on average.
