EU backs proposal to curb emissions that kill 400,000 Europeans each year

How can you lower emissions from waste collection by 90%?

Air pollution is the number one environmental cause of death in the EU. Every year, 400,000 die prematurely. The EU has now decided to reduce emissions significantly. With a new proposal, the EU aims to halve the number of deaths from air pollution before 2030.

With automated waste collection, you can reduce the traffic from waste trucks collecting municipal solid waste in cities by up to 90%, and thereby reduce emissions.
