Low emission zones & driving bans: What will change in 2022?

Originally, a whole series of new rules and driving restrictions were to come into force in the year that is coming to an end. But the unpredictable pandemic led many municipalities and conurbations to postpone the introduction of an environmental zone or to abandon it altogether because pollution levels had improved. The latter may be directly related to the decreased traffic during the curfews. Nevertheless, we at Green-Zones® show where things are still happening and who will be affected by future driving bans in 2022.

Particulate matter from wood-fired oven

Winter and Christmas time is stove and fireplace time. But watch out: Not all stoves are still allowed to burn because they emit too many pollutants. Although traffic and industry are considered the biggest producers of particulate matter, heating with wood has never been environmentally friendly either. It used to be no problem, but today any dirt that gets into the air is taboo.

E-cars from 1983

The idea of driving a car with electricity is anything but new. As early as 1983, presenter and eco-pioneer Peter Lustig from the popular children's programme "Löwenzahn" was dreaming about it.
