Options to Reduce Methane Emissions


Courtesy of European Commission, Environment DG

This study analyses methane emissions in the EU and strategies to control them. It considers options for the reduction of emissions from each of the main source sectors, agriculture, waste, coal mining and the oil and gas industry, and assesses costs and applicability of the mitigation options available to produce cost curves for reducing emissions. The study also makes projections of methane emissions to 2020 under a ‘business as usual’ scenario on a sectoral basis and combines estimates of achievable reductions from all sectors to give an EU wide projection of methane emissions if a mitigation strategy were implemented.
