Bulgaria has no official data on the correlation between air pollution and health, said the director of the Executive Environment Agency Vanya Grigorova, quoted by Dnevnik.bg.

Grigorova's remark came in response to the European Environmental Agency (EEA) report on "Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities - an updated assessment”. According to it, Bulgaria's Maritsa Iztok-2 Thermal Power Plant is the most polluting industrial facility in Europe.

At the same time Bulgaria ranks seventh among European countries in terms of nominal value of overall pollution costs.

“Bulgaria tops the report on the cost of air pollution, but it is hard to comprehend here, because it comments on the healthcare costs as a result of excessive air pollution,” Grigorova told journalists. “We don't do such correlations, we have no data on connection between disease and polluted air.”
