Urban Air Pollution Challenge for Green Logistics

Agata Mesjasz-Lech    


The article attempts to identify green logistics tasks in the area of reducing the negative environmental impacts of households and entities operating in the city. The purpose of this article is to determine changes in relation to the effect of economic entities and households functioning in the city on atmospheric air and waste quantity, as well to indicate cities and agglomerations which are characterized by the greatest degree of hazard in this respect. The analysis looks at the following variables: pollutants emissions in cities at high environmental risk of air pollutants emissions from environmentally harmful facilities, concentration of suspended particulate matter pm10 by agglomerations, concentration of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and benzene and lead by agglomerations, mixed municipal waste collected and treated in cities, controlled landfill sites in operation by urban areas. Data from the years 2005 and 2013 were analyzed. In the article the methods of descriptive and mathematical statistics were used.
