Comparative analysis on the setting of low emission zone in Europe

Extensive review is first carried out on the implementation experience of low emission areas in European countries. Then, some analyses are made on the implementation time, measures, steps, supervision, rewards and punishment system and effects of implementing low emission zone in London, Milan, Berlin, Munich, Lisbon and Stockholm. Through the analyses, it suggests that low emission area is one of the main ways to improve the urban air quality, and it is also helpful to solve the problem of traffic jam. In addition, some suggestions are proposed based on the experience of European countries and the current situation in China.

Key words:highway transportation management,low emission zone (LEZ),particulate matter (PM),emission standards,air quality,Europe
