Air pollution control planning additional measures planned
Air pollution control planning additional measures planned

  • stationary sources

    • BAT and more ….

  • transport:

    • cleanervehicles and fuels

      • municipal car fleet (CRT retrofit & CNG)

      • LEZ (low emission zone)

    • less traffic through sustainable transport- and city planning (master plan transport, “StEP”), inter alia….

      • re-routing through traffic on tangential roads

      • extension of zones with parking fees

        • expected effect: ~ 10% traffic reduction in Berlin’s centre

    • Optimized traffic management at hot spots ( HEAVEN)

      • linked with noise abatement

    • Speed limits

      • big effect on noise and safety

      • little effect on air quality

Berlin s air quality strategy measures and expected effects

Options for LEZ: Emission reduction in relation to the trend scenario 2010 impact of transport planning („StEP“) and vehicle technology

all Diesel vehicles Euro III + particle filter(PF)

all vehicles Euro IV + PF

busses Euro V

big fleets of delivery services and logistic firms

municipal fleet

no StEP

with StEP

no StEP

implementation 2010


Air pollution control planning core measure low emision zone
Air Pollution Control Planning Core measure: low emision zone

traffic restriction for high emitting Diesel vehicles in the cenral city area

  • stage I: 2008, minimum criteria EURO II

  • stage II:

    2010, minimum criteria EURO III & particle filter

     scrutiny in 2006, whether retrofit with particle trap could be required already in stage I

     at last under preparation...

  • national labelling scheme for clean vehicles Federal Government

  • tax incentives, in particular for clean (or retrofitted) vans and lorries Federal Government

Air Pollution Control Planning supplementary action

Optimised traffic management at hot spots

  • HEAVEN: potential for improvement up to 20% (NOx) and 7% (PM10) by truck ban

  • limited scope for implementation

  • needs thorough investigation to avoid disbenefits elsewhere

  • successive scrutiny of remaining hot spots

  • Speed limits

    • concept for imposing 30 km/h limits on main roads where noise & road safety & air pollution warrants
