Ministry Meausres, Including Creation of Low-Emission Zone, Result in Decrease in Black Carbon in Haifa
Since a low-emission zone was created in Haifa's lower city in February 2018, there has been a significant improvement in pollution. This includes a 24% decrease in the black carbon rate in the last year, a 34% decrease in black carbon since the LEZ began operating, and a 19% drop in nitrogen oxide concentrations. Low-emission zones, or LEZs, are areas in which diesel vehicles defined as polluting are prohibited from entering, unless particulate filters have been installed in them.
