Air quality in Sweden
Reduced emissions of air pollutants from industries, road traffic and heating has caused the air quality in the County has improved since the 1990s. The biggest problems today in Sweden localities are particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide. Road traffic is a major source of these contaminants.
A background contamination level of air pollutants in Sweden rural areas is very low. The major air quality problems exist in the County’s townships and the concentrations of nitrogen dioxide and particulates.
Annual mean values for nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter were measured by air care Alliance in NYKOPING in 2009 and in 2010. A measurement in both cities was below both EQs and the regional environmental objective for nitrogen dioxide. As regards the levels of particulate matter exceeded the target level in Eskilstuna.

In the regional monitoring monitors the deposition of sulphur and nitrogen and pH in soil water. The deposition of sulphur has decreased significantly since the beginning of the 1990s. For nitrogen, I can’t see any trend, even though the overall emissions in Europe have been reduced by 20-40% since the mid-1990s. Deposition of sulphur and nitrogen contribute to acidification of soil and water. Measurements of the pH of the soil water shows no clear change in recent years but the IVL deems that nationally there is a slow recovery from acidification.
