With the rapid development of the European economy and society, cars have become popular means of transportation. In 2017, the EU owned about 200 million vehicles, including Germany with 46 million vehicles, Italy with 37 million vehicles and France with 32 million vehicles. In the five years from 2013 to 2017, car ownership in most of the EU's member states increased rapidly. Although the EU generally has a good air environment. But in the economically developed regions of the western and southern coasts of the European Union, air quality issues are becoming more apparent. According to a set of data released by the European Environment Agency in 2017, the excessive PM2.5 has caused 400,000 people to die prematurely every year in Europe. Among them, there are 66,000 in Germany, 60,000 in Italy, 46,000 in Poland, and 35,000 in France. Vehicle exhaust emissions are an important cause of the increase in PM2.5 concentration. To this end, the EU governments have made great efforts: increase parking fees, increase bus and subway passenger traffic, and encourage planting trees. But the problem is still serious. In order to protect the breathing health of European people, improve the quality standards of automobiles and reduce the concentration of PM2.5 on the road. We recommend that the European Environment Agency can enact regulations requiring all new cars in the EU to have an air purifier installed outside the car. As we all know, many cars are now equipped with air purifiers, its main purpose is to keep the air inside the car clean. The EU Environment Agency can require all cars sold to install an air purifier outside the car. After the car is turned on, the air purifier is activated at the same time. Use this air purifier to clean the road. The European Environmental Agency can further improve the cleaning performance of air purifiers by correspondingly improving the cleaning standards of air purifiers. At the same time, luxury cars should be equipped with higher-level equipment. In 2018, the EU's car sales volume is 15 million. The addition of an air purifier to each of these cars can effectively reduce the PM2.5 concentration on the EU roads. Every time the quality of the car is checked, EU governments must check that the car's air purifier meets the standards. If the quality of the air purifier does not meet the standard, the owner must install one at his own expense. In this way, it is believed that the EU's air quality problems will be largely alleviated and the health of the European people will be guaranteed.

Dear M. Niu Xiaofeng,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA is an agency of the European Union, whose task is to provide sound, independent information on the environment. The EEA aims to support sustainable development by helping to achieve significant and measurable improvement in Europe's environment, through the provision of timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-making agents and the public.

The EEA contribution to policy processes is restricted to environmental assessments and the EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies. This is the responsibility of the European Commission. Therefore, we are not in a position to act on your proposal.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
