2016-07-12 Italy: Clean Air City


 

Clean Air City

Description of the project offered: 
Air pollution causes damage in the European Union alone an economic cost of around 1,600 billion dollars a year, according to figures released by the World Health Organisation in April 2015. The calculation was made taking as object of study the 2010 data relating to 600,000 deaths caused by air pollutants. The study shows that are for Italy the economic impact of the damage of the pollutants and related to over 32,000 fatalities is worth more than $ 97 billion.
To all this it must be added that the impact on human health - and the related economic impacts – are high, due to the onset of various diseases directly related to ambient air pollution, as well as from related loss of productivity.
exorbitant costs, which the political and social system are not yet aware of.
The air pollution situation in the Marche is a concern. The "Air-Sickness" Report presented by Legambiente confirms these concerns.
Many of the control units in the first days of 2015 have exceeded the limit of PM10 overruns permitted by law (50 micrograms / m3 of particulate matter for 35 days a year).
Many of the control units in the first days of 2015 have exceeded the limit of PM10 overruns permitted by law (50 micrograms / m3 of particulate matter for 35 days a year). In Falconara Marittima the control unit in the area school has recorded overruns for 10 days, in Pesaro overruns beyond the norm for the control of the citadel (9 days). Also problems in Jesi, with 8 days over the limit, San Benedetto del Tronto with 5 days, with 4 Chiaravalle and Ancona, Cittadella area, with 3.
The project replicates and extends proven solutions in urban areas in the period 2011-2015 and, in this case hinges on pursuing 3 objectives:
- TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE: Confirm the use of the APA technology (Atmospheric Dust Abatement) in critical urban areas, through the public administrations.
- ECONOMIC OBJECTIVE; Determine the reflections of the investment to be carried out, placed on public administrations and, therefore, consequently evaluate the best economic model and formulation of socio - economic solution to be pursued, in accordance with a special delivery platform service designed and made available to the public administration to address land management.Investment formulas typically lead back to purchasing patterns, rental, exchange of services in bundles and project financing structure.
- REGULATORY OBJECTIVE: Analyze European legislation and planned developments in environmental matters, confirm the consistency of the management and disposal of waste generated by ambient air cleaning systems operated by the APA in urban settings and locate possibly improving solutions for the treatment and management of waste generated.
