Estimating air pollutant emissions – new guidebook for experts
A new 2013 version of the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook has been published by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The new edition, which is indispensable for anyone working on air pollution emissions, updates the 2009 volume.
The EMEP/EEA guidebook provides a general reference source for countries reporting air emissions inventory data under international agreements. It is also a key information source frequently used by researchers and modellers.
With more than 2 100 pages of guidance, the 2013 volume includes many new elements, including methods for estimating black carbon, improved consistency across different pollutants, and increased information on pollutant sources such as stoves, solvent use and agriculture.
