Public health air pollution impacts of different pathways to meet the UK Climate Change Act commitment to 80 per cent reduction of CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions by 2050

The UK has incorporated into legislation a target to cut “carbon dioxide equivalents” by 80 per cent by 2050, but not all efforts to reduce CO2 will improve air quality. Substituting biomass, or wood, for fossil fuels could reduce CO2 emissions, but burning wood can release harmful particles and potential carcinogens. The project will assess the impact of various scenarios for hitting the target. These will involve different proportions of fuels and transport modes. The project will seek to identify scenarios that achieve the CO2 target with fewest negative public health impacts.
