The industrial activities in Kosova cause air pollutions. Biggest industrial pollutants in Kosova are: * Power Plant Corporation of Kosova, which includes power plants (Kosova "A" and Kosova "B") and lignite open pit in Obiliq; * Industrial Complex “New Co. Ferronikeli Complex L.L.C.”, in Drenas; * Cement Plant - Sharrcem” in Hani i Elezit and * Mining and Metallurgical Complex “Trepça”, in Mitrovica The first three contributors to the pollution are active while industrial complex “Trepça” has inherited pollution, the consequences of which are present today. Effects of industrial air pollution have global impact on: thinning of the ozone cover, climate change and greenhouse effect. While the effects on local-regional level are : increase of the temperature in cities, reduce of the radiation of the sun, changing humidity, and acid rain. To achieve the desired quality standards of the air, as in the current (temporary) concentrations as well in persistent (permanent) concentrations, it is recommended the completion of the necessary equipment which will reduce air pollution inside allowed limits (as is the case of industrial complex "New Co. Ferronikeli Complex L.L.C.") where the Venturi system is installed. This is one of the most advanced systems for cleaning gases. After that must be done extension of integrated network for air quality monitoring all over Kosova including preparation and implementation of monitoring programes from the operators, as it's required by the legal framework in the field of environmental protection.
