Environment related health costs in Flanders
In 2007-2008, ARCADIS has conducted a study on behalf of the Flemish government, with as main objectives a review and a critical analysis of the existing calculations of environmental health costs in Flanders. This study covers the effects on human health of air pollution due to particulates and tropospheric ozone. Despite the large uncertainty surrounding individual estimates, we can be confident about the order of magnitude of the yearly marginal “cost of illness” due to PM2.5, PM10 and ozone (a few dozens of millions EUR per 10µg/m³). If we also take into account the “subjective” health costs, our estimates run in the billion EUR.
