THE quality of Spanish air improved in 2018, with new analysis showing the amount of pollutants have fallen but remain above official limits.
The Climate Change Ministry’s Air Quality report found the fall was less significant for nitrogen dioxide (NO2), particulates (PM10) and ozone (O3).
Environmental policies including Madrid’s low emission zone and the electrification of public transport are beginning to have a positive impact, government officials said.
The amount of pollutants exceeded limits 34 times in 2018 compared to 36 times the year before. The regions of Madrid, Andalucia, Castilla-La Mancha, Valencia and Murcia saw pollution rise above limits the most, according to the report.
