Continuation of the Environmental Agreement on NOx
A desired continuation of the Environmental Agreement on NOx 2011-2017 is petitioned in a letter from NHO represented by the Executive Director for Industrial Affairs, Petter Haas Brubakk, to the Ministry of Climate and Environment. The letter requests negotiations towards an extended Environmental Agreement on NOx beyond 2017.
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are waste gases which lead to acid rain and increased concentrations of ground-level ozone. Emissions may have harmful effects on the eco system and vegetation in addition to being hazardous to people’s health.
