Air pollution at sea

Due to maritime transport, nitrogen oxide levels are quite high in the Mediterranean and in the surrounding ports. It is therefore not surprising that the authorised limit values are still being exceeded in Marseille. France is currently fighting for the introduction of a so-called "Eca" zone (low emission zone) in the Mediterranean by 2022, where only 0.1% nitrogen oxide would be allowed. The draft has yet to be submitted to the EU Council.
