Question for written answer E-000554-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ruža Tomašić (ECR)

 Subject:  Air pollution in Slavonski Brod
 Answer in writing 

Measuring stations in Slavonski Brod are still recording PM10 concentrations that exceed the daily limit value of 50 mg/m3, with a maximum recorded daily concentration of 127 609 mg/m3.

At the same time, the station is recording excessive hourly limit values of SO2 (sulphur dioxide) in the air amounting to 489.1 mg/m3.

According to the regulation on the levels of pollutants in the air, the daily limit value of PM10 particulate matter in the air may not be exceeded more than 35 times during a calendar year.

Despite this, the daily limit value of PM10 particulate matter in the air had been exceeded 38 times by November 2016.

The oil refinery in Bosanski Brod in Bosnia and Herzegovina does not use filters to stop harmful emissions, and this is causing the situation in Slavonski Brod to spiral further out of control, with an unbearable stench present every day and an increase in health problems among the population of Brod-Posavina county.

Under the provisions of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the EU and Bosnia and Herzegovina, does the Commission have the ability to sanction such a direct and constant violation of the EU acquis on environmental protection?
