  • Projections in hindsight - An assessment of past emission projections reported by Member States under EU air pollution and GHG legislation

    Over the past decade, European Union (EU) Member States were required to regularly compile and report official estimates of their projected (future) emissions for the year 2010 under two complementary pieces of legislation: for greenhouse gases (GHGs), the Monitoring Mechanism Decision (MMD), i.e. Decision No 280/2004/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 February 2004 ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • Approximated EU GHG inventory: proxy GHG estimates for 2014

    Objective of the report This report provides estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the European Union (EU) and its Member States for the year 2014, covering the full GHG inventory (all sectors, except land use, landuse change and forestry (LULUCF), and all gases). These estimates are also referred to as approximated ('proxy') estimates or inventories in this report as they cover ...

  • EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016

    1 Guidebook Introduction 1.1 Introduction The joint EMEP (1)/EEA Air Pollutant Emission Inventory Guidebook (the 'Guidebook'), following the 'Guidelines for Reporting Emissions and Projections Data' under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) (2), provides concise guidance on how ...

  • European Union emission inventory report 1990–2013 under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP)

    This document is the annual European Union (EU) emission inventory report to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) (UNECE, 1979). The report and its accompanying data constitute the official submission by the European Commission (EC) on behalf of the EU as a Party to the Executive Secretary of UNECE. The report is ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emission Trends and Projections in Europe

    Untitled Document Abstract The actual and projected progress (by 2010) of the EU and candidate countries towards reaching their targets under the Kyoto ...

  • Emissions of Atmospheric Pollutants in Europe, 1990–99

    This report presents indicators and information on air emission trends in Europe 1990–99. Atmospheric pollution contributes to several prominent environmental issues that arise due to emissions to the atmosphere (air emissions) from a variety of mainly anthropogenic (man-made) activities. This report covers air emissions that contribute to the following issues: • acidification and ...


  • Energy and Environment in the European Union

    Introduction Energy gives personal comfort and mobility to people, and is essential for the generation of industrial, commercial and societal wealth. On the other hand, energy production and consumption (including heat and electricity production, oil refining and final uses in households, services, industry and transport) place considerable pressures on the environment. These pressures include ...

  • Contribution of Natural Sources to PM Levels in Europe

    Air pollution levels in the EU depend to a considerable extent on anthropogenic emissions; however, in some areas large amounts of PM can be emitted from various sources of natural origin or transported from regions outside the EU. Exceedences of air quality limit values represent breaches of Community law which can have significant legal consequences for the Member States. For some existing ...


  • New Environment Action Programme to 2020 – questions and answers

    Why do we need a new EAP? Global trends and challenges such as population dynamics and rising consumption in other parts of the world are making some environmental issues more pressing than ever - from resource and land use, to climate change. This makes it ever more important to address environmental problems at EU and at global level. The European Environment Agency's 2010 report on the ...

  • How best to address aviation`s full climate impact?

    International regulation does not address non-CO2 emissions from aviation, despite their climate-warming effects. This study reports the findings of the AviClim research project, which investigated the feasibility of including CO2 and non-CO2 species in international protocols. Of several trading scenarios assessed, the authors found that a global emissions trading scheme for both kinds of ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in the European Atmosphere: An Updated Overview

    The industrial revolution and the resultant technological society have led to a continuous production and emission of new toxic substances causing gradual and widely diffuse adverse effects to the entire planet usually known as Global Environmental Changes. Climate change, ozone depletion and global distribution of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are, among other, important examples of ...


  • Sick-building syndrome and building-related illness

    Significant health problems linked to very poor indoor air qualityIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the content of interior air that could affect health and comfort of building occupants. The IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), chemicals (such as carbon monoxide, radon), allergens, or any mass or energy stressor are more prevalent than anyone could have predicted. ...

  • The European environment – state and outlook 2010: synthesis

    Environmental policy in the European Union and its neighbours has delivered substantial improvements to the state of the environment. However, major environmental challenges remain which will have significant consequences for Europe if left unaddressed. What differs in 2010, compared to previous EEA European environment — State and outlook reports, is an enhanced understanding of the links ...

  • Management of Mining, Quarrying and Ore-Processing Waste in the European Union

    At the request of the Environment Directorate-General of the European Commission, BRGM (Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières) has conducted a study on the management of mining, quarrying and ore-processing waste in the European Union. This project was completed mainly through the use of questionnaire sent to sub- contractors in almost each country of the EU. To assess this information ...

  • Painting business green

    In the past ten years, environmental concerns have taken centre stage both in public perception and in business. Oliver Cann explores the growing call for change. Business, government and the environment - to say nothing of the media - have to coexist, but it is not always easy. Governments for their part signed up to the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 and agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to ...
