Plant-by-plant emissions of SO2, NOx and dust and energy input of large combustion plants covered by Directive 2001/80/EC

Topics: , , ,
The Directive on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants (LCP Directive, 2001/80/EC) applies to combustion plants with a rated thermal input equal to or greater than 50 MW, irrespective of the type of fuel used (solid, liquid or gaseous)

European data

Plant-by-plant emissions (LCP)

The zipped file contains an Excel file with plant-by-plant LCP data for 2007, 2008 and 2009 including total annual emissions of SO2, NOx and dust (as total suspended particles) and the total annual amount of energy input, related to the net calorific value, broken down in terms of five categories of fuel: biomass, other solid fuels, liquid fuels, natural gas, other gases. This information was reported by Member States to the Commission. The Excel-file represents the status of the database in April 2012. Information on energy input of individual plants is not made available for Czech Republic, France and The Netherlands.

Additional information

According to Annex VIII.B of the LCP Directive, Member States shall establish, starting in 2004 and for each subsequent year, an inventory of SO2, NOx and dust emissions from all combustion plants covered by the Directive with a rated thermal input of 50 MW or more. The inventory will include information on a plant-by-plant basis concerning the total annual emissions of SO2, NOx and dust (as total suspended particles) and the total annual amount of energy input, related to the net calorific value, broken down in terms of the five categories of fuel: biomass, other solid fuels, liquid fuels, natural gas, other gases. A summary of the results of this inventory that shows the emissions from refineries separately shall be communicated to the Commission on a triennial basis. The yearly plant-by-plant data shall be made available to the Commission upon request. More information about the LCP Directive is available on the DG Environment web site at http://ec.europa.eu/environment/air/pollutants/stationary/lcp/implementation.htm
