The result is generally RIVM Research in 2020 According to the agency, it is not possible to say with certainty whether the amount of PAHs and metals in the IJmond area is decreasing.
Studies need to be conducted over many years to properly confirm whether emissions are declining, RIVM said. He plans to publish the results of his next survey in the spring of 2023.
There are some differences from 2020. The amounts of PAHs and metals were lower in Wijk aan Zee, but higher in Beverwijk. This is due to weather conditions. The amount of iron in dust across the region is also lower than in 2020.
Nevertheless, the risks to children playing outside remain “undesirable,” RIVM said.
Verified by an external agency, Tata Steel’s calculations reflect actual emissions, and RIVM studies dust falling on surrounding areas.
