Context

Air pollution is a serious problem traced to 3 million deaths worldwide every year. It also causes yearly costs in the order of billions of euros, considering lost productivity and health expenses. Finally, pollution impacts negatively on aspects such as transport (e.g. lack of visibility in airports), city maintenance (e.g. infrastructure cleaning) and agriculture (e.g. pollutant depositions).
