  • Analysis of key trends and drivers in greenhouse gas emissions in the EU between 1990 and 2014

    1 GHG emissions in 2014 compared to 2013 1.1 Summary (last year) Total GHG emissions (excluding LULUCF) decreased by 185 million tonnes, or 4.1% compared to 20132 to reach their lowest level in 2014 (4282 Mt CO2 eq.). This significant decrease in emissions in 2014 came with an increase in GDP of 1.4 %. This resulted in a lower GHG-emission intensity of GDP in the EU ...

  • Use and validation of ADMS-Urban in contrasting urban and industrial locations

    ADMS-Urban has been used in approximately half of the pilot studies of air pollution recently carried out in the UK. The pilot areas varied in spatial extent and in the nature of the sources, the balance between traffic, industrial and domestic sources, and the pollutants which are important. The studies used local emission inventories, and outputs included time-series of predicted concentrations ...

  • ADMS and ADMS-Urban

    ADMS and ADMS-Urban are new generation air quality models that are easy to use and attractively presented. They run on a PC under Windows and are suitable for modelling of industrial and urban dispersion problems for comparison with limits, planning, and 'what if' scenarios. Each model can be linked to a GIS (geographical information system) for simple entry of sources and clear presentation of ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Generating biomass fuel from disaster debris

    Natural disasters create massive amounts of vegetative debris, the majority of which is landfilled or open burned. These environmentally harmful practices are the norm partly out of necessity and convenience, with a focus on clearing material as quickly as possible after a disaster - versus finding outlets for the material including mulch, compost and biomass fuel. The biomass fuel market in ...
