1 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 1 Air Quality & CAFE AREHNA WORKSHOP Kos, 3-5 May 2003 Mrs Michèle LEPELLETIER

2 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 2 CAFE Clean Air For Europe Communication from the Commission COM(2001)245 final, 4/5/2001

3 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 3 CAFE: Background l Integrated Programme of technical analysis and policy development to further reduce air pollution l It follows Auto-Oil I/II initiatives (1992/2000) which were specifically focused on road transport emissions

4 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 4 Auto-oil I and II: results l Auto-Oil I (1992/1996) and II (1997/2000) have concluded with the adoption of legislative measures giving rise to the so- called EURO 3/4/5 standards for road transport emissions

5 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 5 Auto-oil I and II: results Cars - petrol (emission limit value in g/km)

6 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 6 Auto-oil I and II: results Cars - diesel (emission limit value in g/km)

7 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 7 Auto-oil I and II: results Heavy duty vehicles - diesel (emission limit value in g/km)

8 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 8 CAFE: development/aim

9 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 9 CAFE l CAFE: Programme launched in 2001 l Approach: knowledge- and cost-effective based, focus on stakeholders consultation l Scope: wider than Auto-Oil and open to all industry sectors: transport & heating and industry processes etc.

10 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 10 CAFE aims at developing l a long-term strategic and integrated policy to mitigate the effects of air pollution on human health and environment l a thematic strategy under 6th Environmental Action Programme in 2004/2005

11 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 11 CAFE: Issues l Auto-oil programmes have achieved good results for most emissions l 2 specific air quality issues still remain: - particulate matters - tropospheric ozone precursors: NOx and VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds - solvents)

12 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 12 CAFE Main objectives l particulate matters: cause premature deaths and reduce quality of life l tropospheric ozone (NOx and VOC precursors): affects human health and ecosystems Other specific objectives l heavy metals: deposition issue (toxicity bioacumulabibity and persistency) l PAH: polyaromatic hydrocarbons (carcinoginicity)

13 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 13 CAFE: areas of work l study of air pollution effects l development of scenarios for emissions and pollution levels up to 2020 l development of indicators l target setting l assessment of integrated policy options (Cardiff process: integration of environmental, energy, urban issues & land use planning)

14 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 14 CAFE: organisation (1) l Secretariat: DG ENV l Steering Group: þ Informal committee with experts from MS, chaired by DG ENV þ Advice on the programme strategy þ 2/3 meetings per year

15 European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° 15 CAFE: organisation (2) Working Groups (WG): scientific external experts (consultants, university,.) dealing with specific areas þ WG on Implementation þ WG on Baseline scenarios and integrated assessment modelling þ WG on target setting and policy assessment þ WG on Particulates
