The Kosovo A and B powers plants continue be the highest air polluters in Obiliq. According to statistics, the level of dust arising from chimneys of power plants overly exceeds the legislated levels with EU standards. The number of cases with illness and death from cancer is large. Power plants do not use filters to lower the pollution, since there are no measurements and regular monitoring of air quality in the area.
