Exposure to PM2.5 annual mean

PM10 annual mean | PM10 daily mean | PM2.5 annual mean

Since 2008 nobody in Belgium has been exposed to annual mean PM2.5 concentrations above the European treshold value of 25 µg/m³. The exposure to PM2.5 declined during the last years, with 0% of the Belgian population being exposed to concentrations above 20µg/m³ after 2011, whereas this was still about 40% in 2007. However in 2015, 86% of the Belgians was still exposed to PM2.5 concentrations above the treshold value of 10µg/m³ set by the WHO.
