AQEG advises on biofuel impacts and Port Talbot

The government’s air quality expert group has issued two advice notes to DEFRA and the devolved administrations

The government’s air quality expert group (AQEG) has issued two advice notes to the environment department (DEFRA) and the devolved administrations.

The first concludes biofuels in low-strength blends pose little threat to air quality, although more research on stronger concentrations is needed if their use is to be encouraged.1

The second report concerns air quality in Port Talbot.2 The south Wales industrial town has several particulate sources, including a steelworks and the M4 motorway. But despite previous investigation, uncertainties remain over each source’s contribution (ENDS Report 404, pp 41-42).
