»Luftverschmutzung führte in Deutschland zu etwa 13.000 vorzeitigen Todesfällen«

Studie des ICCT, 26.2.2019 (engl. Originalfassung)

A new study provides the most detailed picture available to date of the health impacts attributable to emissions from four transportation subsectors: on-road diesel vehicles, on-road non-diesel vehicles, shipping, and non-road mobile sources such as agricultural and construction equipment. It links state-of-the-art vehicle emissions, air pollution, and epidemiological models to estimate transportation PM2.5 and ozone-related premature deaths at the global, regional, national, and local levels in 2010 and 2015.

In 2015, approximately 13,000 premature deaths in Germany were attributable to ambient PM2.5 and ozone from transportation tailpipe emissions. Deaths attributable to ambient PM2.5 and ozone from all sources totaled 43,000, meaning that transportation accounted for just under one-third (31.4%) of all deaths from PM2.5 and ozone pollution that year.

Germany had the 4th highest number of transportation-attributable premature deaths from PM2.5 and ozone pollution among all countries in 2015, behind China, India, and the United States. Controlling for population size, Germany had the highest mortality rate attributable to transportation tailpipe emissions of any major economy, at 17 premature deaths per 100,000 population—more than three times the global average and nearly 50% above the EU average.
