EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook — 2009


Courtesy of European Environment Agency (EEA)

The EMEP/EEA Air Pollutant Emission Inventory Guidebook (formerly referred to as the EMEP CORINAIR Guidebook) provides guidance on estimating emissions from both anthropogenic and natural emission sources. It is designed to facilitate reporting of emission inventories by countries to the UNECE LRTAP Convention and the EU NEC Directive. The Guidebook is prepared by the UNECE/EMEP Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections (TFEIP). The present 2009 version has been substantially updated in comparison with earlier editions.

There is now greater methodological consistency throughout, and a more complete coverage of emission sources and emission factors is provided together with updated technology descriptions. New general guidance chapters have also been prepared; these present the underlying principles of emission inventory preparation. Please note that while these chapters have been technically-endorsed by the TFEIP, they have not yet been approved by the TFEIP’s parent body, EMEP. The chapters are therefore still subject to change. The technically-endorsed chapters are nevertheless made available at the specific request of EMEP to ensure their accessibility to national experts. The final chapters will be available through this website in late 2009 following their approval by EMEP.
