Zaragoza wins award for tram system for lowering emissions

The operator of Zaragoza’s tram system, Tranvía Zaragoza, has won an international award for the contribution it has made to lowering emissions in the Spanish city.

Data from the University of Zaragoza’s CIRCE institute, a research centre that creates and develops innovative solutions in renewable energy, showed that Zaragoza’s tram network is responsible for reducing 482 tonnes of NOX, 293 tonnes and 17 tonnes of PM10 a year.

According to Tranvía Zaragoza, this means that the city comfortably meets the air quality targets set out by the World Health Organisation.
