Drop in emissions

Slovak emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitric oxides, and carbon oxides have been reduced to below 1980s levels, mainly due to upgrades in industrial machinery, according to a report on the state of the environment in the Slovak Republic for 2001.

Environmentalist Mikuláš Huba says that most of the clean-up occurred in the first three years of the 1990s.

The largest emissions from 2001came from electricity producer Slovenské elektrárne and US Steel Košice.
