Conclusions With decreasing pollution, also impacts are expected to decline in the future. However, problems will not be entirely resolved: PM remains serious (~5 months life expectancy loss in 2020) Ozone: Remains a significant cause for premature deaths (Several 1000 cases in 2020) Vegetation damage: Wide-spread violations of AOT40 critical level will prevail Acidification: Will not disappear, mainly due to NH3 Eutrophication remains unresolved
