x], PM and NMVOC are important local pollutants that participate also as ozone precursors affecting the global atmospheric chemistry.
Similarly, gasoline vehicles have been estimated to contribute nearly to 75% of the total NMVOC emissions from the interurban road transport.
According to the European Commission, the emission standards of new heavy duty vehicles have been reduced by 88% (between 1982 and 2007), 95% (1982-2007), 97% (1982-2007) and 98% (1992-2007) for CO, NMVOC, N[O.
Interurban road modes present a high variation in emissions of pollutants depending on vehicle and fuel types: buses have pollutant intensity values similar to trucks for CO and NMVOC, and gasoline cars present values of over 5 g CO/p-km and 0.
The decrease of CO and NMVOC and the increase of N[O.
NMVOCs arise as vapours from things like the white spirits used to remove oil and grease and the solvents and chemicals relied on by dry cleaners and small bakeries.
Another pollutant projected to fall in scale is NMVOCs (non-methane volatile organic compounds), which should fall by 45% across the EU by 2030 to 5.
