Better public information in European Pollutant Emission Register (EPER)
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.
