Crisis reduces air pollution in Romania

According to Romania’s National Environment Protection Agency, air pollution levels in big cities were reduced for the first time in the past nine years, primarily due to the decline in traffic by between 5-30%. Another factor that has contributed to reduced air pollution is the socially depressing closure of industrial plants in large cities, such as Timisoara, Piatra Neamt, Iasi, Targu Mures, Copsa Mica and Vaslui.
