Method

Fireworks

Germany reports the emissions from NOx, SOx, TSP, PM10, PM2.5, As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn of the usage of fireworks in Germany.

The emission factors are from the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2013, p. 20, table 3-13.

Statistical data on imports, exports and production of fireworks are used as activity data with consumption = import + production - export. The sold amounts of fireworks have decreased slightly from 1990 to 1995 and have been relatively constant since.

Cigarettes, cigars and tobacco consumption

Germany reports the emissions of NOx, NH3, NMVOC, TSP, PM10, PM2.5, Cd, Co, Cu, Ni, Zn, Benzo(a)pyrene (B[a]P), Benzo(b)fluoranthene (B[b]F), Benzo(k)fluoranthene (B[k]F), Indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene (I[123cd]P), PAH 1-4 and PCDD/F from the smoking of cigarettes and cigars.

The emission factors are from the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2013, p. 21, table 3-14.

Statistical data on imports, exports and production of tobacco, cigarettes and cigars are used as activity data. For the tobacco content of the cigarettes and cigars the note of the table 3-14 was used, which says, that one cigarette contains 1 g of tobacco and one cigar contains 5 g of tobacco (consumption = import + production - export). The sold amounts of cigarettes have been relatively constant since 1990.

Charcoal

Germany reports the emissions of TSP, PM10, PM2.5 from charcoal usage for barbecue.

The annual charcoal consumption for barbecue is calculated as annual import + production - export and the relevant volumes of charcoal are extracted from national statistics by the Federal Statistical Office. Other applications for charcoal are not included. The model is based on the two assumptions that there is no storage of charcoal and that all charcoal is burned.
The amount of charcoal used for barbecue has ever-expanding since 1990 and is predominantly imported. As there is only on big producer the production volumes and emissions are confidential. But the emission factors are derived from the CEPMEIP Database (SNAP: 060508).

Recalculations

No recalculations were made.

Planned improvements

In 2.G.4 NH3 emissions from selective catalytic reduction are reported. Germany plans to improve the data base of these emissions and to check if this are a double Count with emissions from CRF 1. In the energy sector the emissions are always measured at the chimney after all tail gas treatments. Germany plans to present these results in the next submission.
