Improvements since Submission 2013

The following changes were introduced since the 2013 Submission:

  • Revision of all CO emission factors of large and medium combustion plants (NFRs 1.A.1 & 2)
  • Newly reported mercury emissions from chemical industry (NFR 2.B)
  • Consideration of biofuel use in off-road mobile sources (NFRs 1.A.2.f ii, 1.A.4.b ii, 1.A.4.c ii, and 1.A.5.b)
  • Consideration of exhaust heavy-metal emissions from off-road mobile sources with respect to new tier1 EF from the EMEP/EEA guidebook 2013 (NFRs 1.A.2.f ii, 1.A.4.b ii, 1.A.4.c ii, and 1.A.5.b)
  • Further revision of CNG and LPG use in road transport (NFR 1.A.3.b)
  • Newly implemented Hg emissions from the chloro-alkali industry (NFR 2.B.5)

Planned for future submissions

Possible improvement issues that have been identified so far and will be checked in the future are given below:

Over-all inventory / all source categories:

Individual source categories:
(R= as follow-up of the review process)

stationary combustion:

  • Revision if the reporting structure of biogas and liquid biomass (1.A.1.a)
  • Possibly measurements of POPs and heavy metal for large combustion plants (1.A.1.a)
  • Evaluation and analyse of BREF-data in order to determine or improve EF for different pollutants (1.A.1.a)
  • Improvement of EF for waste incineration plants for 1990 (1.A.1.a)
  • Revision of SO2 emission factors (1.A.1.b)
  • Further comparison of inventory data with PRTR and ETS (1.A.1.b)
  • Calculation of a complete time series for liquid biomass use (1.A.4.a i)
  • Evaluation of study results in order to revise all activity data (1.A.4.c i)
  • Calculation of a complete time series for biogas use (1.A.4.c i)

mobile combustion:

  • Implemetation of emissions due to running losses in the next TREMOD versionR
  • Derivation of an approach to estimate exhaust PM emissions from mopeds and motorcycles (NFR 1.A.3.b iv)R
  • Consideration of exhaust PM emissions from gasoline driven off-road mobile sources based on the EMEP/EEA guidebook 2013 (NFRs 1.A.2.f ii, 1.A.4.b ii, 1.A.4.c ii, 1.A.5.b)
  • Revision of the TREMOD MM model used for the NRMM inventory (NFRs 1.A.2.f ii, 1.A.4.b ii, 1.A.4.c ii)
  • Revision of the estimation and reporting of POP emissions for several off-road mobile sources based on the EMEP/EEA guidebook 2013 (NFRs 1.A.2.f ii; 1.A.3.c, d ii; 1.A.4.b ii, c ii; 1.A.5.b)
  • Implementation of data derived from the model (still under construction) for the estimation of emissions from maritime transport (1.A.3.d, 1.A.4.c iii)
  • Examination of emission factors for heavy metal emissions from tyre and brake wear and road abrasion, possibly revision of these EF based on the EMEP/EEA guidebook 2013
