European Commission Warns Greece to Reduce Air Pollutants

September 23, 2021

BRUSSELS — The European Commission has requested that Greece and another three European countries implement an EU directive for the reduction of air pollution, in a warning letter released on Thursday.

The European directive on limiting pollutants emitted into the atmosphere by medium-sized combustion plants must be incorporated into the national laws of Austria, Cyprus, France and Greece, says the Commission.

Pollutants, including sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxide and dust, can be emitted into the atmosphere by electricity production plants, the supply of heating and cooling for domestic use, and the supply of heat or steam for industrial purposes, it was noted.

Greece and the other three countries must reply to this warning letter within two months' time.
