North Easterners know their stuff on air pollution

North Easterners were applauded today for knowing their stuff on issues relating to air pollution.

A survey, released today (November 30), showed that over 70% of North East residents were aware that the Government sets national air pollution targets, and 63% knew that cars are more damaging to the environment than buses, per passenger mile travelled.

The survey, by on-line pollster Tickbox.net, was commissioned for Eminox, which makes exhaust emission control equipment for buses, trucks and vans; the equipment removes the vast majority of toxic emissions from vehicle exhausts.

Residents in most areas of the UK were slightly less well informed, with those in Northern Ireland and East Anglia scoring worst.

"The health impacts of traffic pollution probably cost £11 billion a year in the UK alone," said Eminox Director, Mike Galey. "But most of that pollution comes from cars - and if a modern diesel bus engine is fitted with emission control equipment, it is cleaner than a bus powered by Compressed Natural Gas."

Tim Blakemore, editor of Transport Engineer, the monthly magazine for road transport engineers and fleet managers, said: "Truck, bus and coach operators are as keen as anyone on clean air, and they are more than willing to do their bit to cut vehicle emissions as much as possible. But it really is up to government departments, not local authorities, to provide clear, consistent and continuous national grant schemes to make this viable."
