Air Pollution in Toulouse

According to a study carried out by the regional air quality monitoring institute ATMO Occitania, Toulouse airport activities account for only 6% of total pollutant emissions in the metropolis. This study identifies that Toulouse-Blagnac airport is responsible for 5% of nitrogen oxide emissions and 2% of fine particles. This is much less than the impact of road traffic, estimated at more than 82% for nitrogen oxide emissions and nearly 60% for fine particles.
