Construction sites and local authority vehicles are becoming quieter and cleaner
Noise emissions from construction sites or local authority vehicles are often considered very loud and disturbing. In order to protect workers and residents, it is important to operate equipment with low noise and low exhaust emissions. Therefore, the Blue Angel sets limits for the permissible sound pressure levels and exhaust emission levels.
