Miss Slovakia 2014 gets involved in activities for cleaner air in Slovakia PDF Print E-mail
Written by Miloš Veverka   

altAir protection is supported also by Miss Slovakia 2014, Laura Longauerová from Detva, who is actively involved in environmental protection activities, e.g. ecodriving promotion. She explains: “We should not live just for the present, it is necessary to take care of the environment, where also our children are supposed to live. Ecodriving is one of the activities how everyone of us can contribute to the protection of air, climate and can reduce fuel consumption of their car.

Civic association CEPTA organized a press conference in Bratislava on 2nd June 2014, where the following items were presented:

1. ecodriving - content and principles,

2. ecodriving logo,

3. requirements of CEPTA on the EU Environment Council in Luxembourg on 12th June 2014.

More information you can find in an attached press release, in a letter to the Minister of Environment and in requirements of CEPTA below (in Slovak only).

Photographs from the press conference can be seen here.

Video recording from the Environment Council meeting in Luxembourg on 12th June 2014 can be seen here. The Slovak Republic was represented by the state secretary Ján Ilavský (see recording from 1:42:00 to 1:44:30). We regret that the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic lacks an ambition of principal modernisation of medium combustion plants, for which the EU funds can be used. In the requirements presented on behalf of the Slovak Republic (keeping of status quo untill lifetime of present devices, moderation of limits for district heating, for various kinds of fuel and for devices that heat less than 2000 hours a year) a significant and measurable state improvement is blocked for dozens of years.

Za čistý vzduch vo Zvolene PDF Print E-mail
Written by Daniel Lešinský   

Zvolenu v roku 2014 opäť hrozí zhoršovanie kvality ovzdušia. V priemyselných oblastiach Lieskovec, Bučina chcú investori stavať prevádzky na termické zhodnocovanie odpadov (pyrolýza gumy), resp. nový energetický blok na spaľovanie biomasy. Akákoľvek nová prevádzka vo Zvolene a jeho priľahlých katastroch, ktorá by prispievala k zhoršovaniu ovzdušia v našom regióne je neprípustná. Sme imisnou oblasťou so strednými a veľkým zdrojom znečistenia ovzdušia, čo všetci môžeme cítiť.

Znečistené ovzdušie bolo vyhlásené 17.10.2013 Svetovou zdravotníckou organizáciou (WHO) za karcingénne, spôsobujúce popri kardiovaskulárnych ochoreniach aj rakovinu pľúc a krvi. Je preto potrebné vyvinúť občiansky tlak na kompetentných pracovníkov a zodpovedných politikov aby nepovolili ďalšie znečisťovanie vzduchu vo Zvolene, Lieskovci a okolí, naopak žiadať zlepšenie kvality ovzdušia na úroveň limitov WHO.

Skupinka aktívnych občanov pripravila petíciu (v prílohe) proti výstavbe nových zdrojov znečistenia a za prijatie opatrení na jeho zlepšenie, pridajte sa k nám a pomôžte nám mobilizovať Zvolenčanov, teraz zberom podpisov – ide o naše zdravie, zdravie našich detí a našich blízkych. Nebuďme ľahostajní.

Clean Air for Cities PDF Print E-mail
Written by Daniel Lešinský   

Clean AirKlíma bez sadzíExperts from 11 countries of the European Union participated on the international conference Clean Air for Cities organized by a civic association CEPTA in Bratislava from 19th to 20th February 2014. The experts shared their experience and looked for the solutions in the sphere of air pollution. The conference was held under the patronage of the Bratislava mayor Milán nik. The representants of the European Commission, the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic, as well as independent experts presented their contributions. The main message of the conference was the confirmation of the bad air quality not only in Slovakia and presentation of the solutions. Every year 5,800 Slovak inhabitants die prematurely due to fine particle matters PM2,5. It is 20-times more than number of traffic accident victims. The solutions known from other EU countries can be funded by the structural funds 2014-2020 that are set at present. It depends on the Slovak Republic if our country takes advantage of this possibility and thus achieves the air quality improvement, minimally to the level of the EU limits by the year 2020.

The programme and presentations from all the sections of the conference can be found attached. Photos from the conference here, from the press conference here.

As well, you can find in attachment the publication from model city: Clean Air Copenhagen, successful practice in fulfilling the Air Quality Directive.  Publication is showing, how to get cleaner air in cities by low emission zones, congestion charge and bicyclists.
