Better public information in European Pollutant Emission Register (EPER)

Topics: , , ,
A clearer picture of the air and water pollution coming out of Europe's industrial installations is now available to the public due to improved and more complete reporting from industry. This is a key conclusion in an EPER data review report released today by the European Commission.
Improved information on industrial pollution

Improved information on industrial pollution

EPER helps us to analyse and present point-source information on pollution across the EU and make this information available to the citizens of Europe

Prof. Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director of the European Environment Agency

The report evaluates the data on the recently updated EPER website, hosted by the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen. EPER is a register of 50 different pollutants released to air and water by large and medium-sized industrial facilities in 26 European countries. The review includes an assessment of the data collection process, the completeness and consistency of the reported data, and levels of pollutant emissions.
