Skopje, 31/01/2018 - 09:36, UNIQUE ID: 180131_2

This air quality improvement plan was prepared in order to provide a strategy for the air quality improvement in the Skopje agglomeration, which includes the municipalities of City of Skopje (Aerodrom, Butel, Centar, Cair, Gazi Baba, Gjorce Petrov, Karpos, Kisela Voda, Saraj and Suto Orizari) and the rural municipalities Aracinovo, Cucer-Sandevo, Ilinden, Petrovec, Sopiste, Studenicani and Zelenikovo. As part of the plan an air quality assessment was carried out for all the pollutants regulated by the national legislation. The emission study carried out shows the prevalent role of domestic heating and traffic and some stationary sources (industrial sector) especially for the total emission of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter.
