Neutral

In Slovenia, emission of persistent organic pollutants (polychlorinated biphenyl, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, dioxins and furans) decreased between 1990-2016, primarily due to targeted legislation, improved control and use of best available technologies. Only emissions of hexachlorobenzene slightly increased in the same period.

Neutral

Projections show a reduction in SO2, NOx, VOC, NH3 and PM 2.5 emissions by 2030, mainly due to more strict legislation and implementing a number of sectoral policy measures. Reduction is too slow for NOx in the light of the 2020 targets, with respect to the targets for 2030 for all pollutants except for NH3.

Neutral

The emission of primary particles, smaller than 10 µm (PM10), particles smaller than 2.5 µm (PM2.5) and all total suspended particles (TSP) have decreased in the period 2000 – 2018 in Slovenia by 10 %, 5 % and 16 %. The main source of emissions of particulate matter are households, mainly due to use of biomass for domestic heating.

Good

A decrease in SO2 emissions has been significantly influenced by the tightening of legislation concerning the concentration of sulphur in liquid fuels. The permitted concentrations of sulphur in fuels were not exceeded in 2012.

Bad

Concentrations of metals in the ambient air in Slovenia do not exceed the prescribed limits. The annual target value for benzo ( a) pyrene was exceeded at the sampling points in Ljubljana and Maribor, which are under the influence of emissions from transport.

Bad

In recent years, air pollution with ozone has been above the target value at all measurement sites representative for vegetation. Furthermore, the long-term target value has been exceeded to an even higher degree.
