Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. Pursuant to §47 BImSchG and §27 of the 39th BimSchV, a Clean Air Plan (CAP) is to be established, under certain conditions. These conditions exist in Berlin. The present plan is an update of the 2005-2010 Clean Air Plan.
  2. Five packages of measures were established to model the emissions and immissions-related effects of measures for 2015. Measures for which an emissions-reducing effect can be expected city-wide, or at least for a large share of the road sections where exceedances of the limits occur, were selected.
  3. The individual layers of the map show the scenarios for the air pollutant NO2, the map those for PM10.
  4. To ascertain the maximum potential reduction, measures were established regardless of their concrete implementability.
  5. Beside other information on substance-related emissions the factual data display offers information on section based specifications such as street, borough, key etc.
  6. The following table provides an overview of the measures considered:
    Scope of the five-measure package for scenario calculations in the motor vehicle traffic area
    Abbreviation Package of measures Measures included
    MB1 Improved vehicle technology
    • Environmental zone without individual exceptions
    • Higher share of EURO-6 vehicles
    • Support for electro-vehicles
    • Retrofitting with particulate filters (EURO-4 cars/trucks) and NOx scrubbers (EURO-4 trucks)
    MB2 Optimization of traffic flow Reduction of traffic backups by:
    • Traffic-light coordination
    • Inflow dosage
    • 30 km/h speed limit
    MB3 30 km/h speed limit at hotspots
    • Introduction of 30 km/h zones
    MB4 Emissions reduction in the urban background
    • Ban on solid-fuel heating for housing
    • Particulate filters for construction machines
    • Retrofitting with particulate filters in passenger ships
    MB5 Achieving the 2020 fleet early
    • Early compliance with regulations not mandatory until 2020
