Air quality in the Mediterranean: Conclusions of the ECAMED study

Ineris and its partners, Citepa, Cerema and Plan Bleu, present the results of the ECAMED Study, whose objectives are to evaluate the cost and benefits for air quality of the implementation of an Emissions Control Area (ECA) in the Mediterranean Sea.
