This study relies on a consortium coordinated by the Ineris, in collaboration with the Interprofessional Technical Centre for Studies on Air Pollution (CITEPA), the Resource and Expertise Centre on Risks, Environment, Mobility and Planning (CEREMA) and Plan Bleu. The objectives of the study are to evaluate the cost and advantages for air quality of implementing an emission control area (ECA) in the Mediterranean based on scientific information and modelling tools. The conclusions prove the value of introducing such a measure and present its advantages for port towns.
