Resumen

We provide an empirical study of the evolution of emissions
of some specific air pollutants on a panel of EU
member states from 1990 to 2000, and we relate observed
patterns to macroeconomic performance. The ratio pollution
emission to GDP, so-called emission intensity, has
decreased over the period considered in most EU member
states. However, a non-parametric analysis reveals
that the relative positions of different countries in terms
of GDP growth and reduction of emissions have remained
basically unchanged. More specifically, remarkable differences
can be detected between the richest and the poorest
EU members notwithstanding. Also, more dispersion in
emissions levels can be found in those countries with lower
per capita GDP.
