Emissions data and a complete emission inventory is being developed for the whole province, and entered into the AirQUIS system. The system is developed to function as a tool for the cities as well as for the province as a whole. The Master Plan is to be based upon an analysis of relevant and future control and abatement possibilities, and upon comparison of their costs with reduced air pollution and an evaluation of the associated reduction in damage.
The establishment and training in the AirQUIS system has been successfully carried out according to plan, the emissions inventory has been carried out and entered into AirQUIS, and calculations of present and future air pollution concentrations are being carried out.
