European Court of Justice indicts Brussels of air-pollution

The European Court of Justice has ruled that air pollution is not being correctly measured in Brussels.

The supreme court of the EU in matters of European Union law has decided on the limits of air pollution in Brussels. However, according to the court, the limits need to be respected strictly at each measuring station instead of averaging the concentrations recorded at multiple stations in the region.

The judgment concludes that many zones exceed the authorized threshold of pollution in the air. It also calls for stations to be placed in areas with the highest pollution.
