Question

With reference to 0940/2013 you state that Nitrogen Oxides emissions are down by 20 per cent. Are these figures based on measured or modelled concentrations? Does this estimate include all the predicted reductions which flow from the impact of the Euro standards on emissions from diesel cars produced since 2000?

The NOx emission figure referenced has been calculated from the latest version of the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (LAEI). This version of the LAEI uses the latest emissions factors issued by DEFRA last year to reflect the lower than expected impact of Euro standards in reducing NOx emissions from diesel vehicles.
