    7 600 are expected to die prematurely each year due to air pollution
    A study conducted by IVL Swedish Environmental Institute and Umeå University shows that, although Sweden has one of Europe's lowest levels of air pollution, about 7,600 people die prematurely each year due to exposure to primarily nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter. Each death corresponds to a loss of approximately eleven years of life. The annual cost to society is estimated to be the equivalent of SEK 56 billion.
