  • NFR 1.A.3.c: inclusion of abrasive emissions from railways

Improvements planned for future submissions

Possible improvement issues that have been identified so far and will be checked in the future are given below:

Over-all inventory / all source categories:

  • To prioritise improvements on the basis of the results of the uncertainty analysis, it is planned to determine uncertainty analysis at source category level.

Individual source categories:
(R= as follow-up of the review process)

stationary combustion:

  • Revision if the reporting structure of biogas and liquid biomass (1.A.1.a)
  • Possibly measurements of POPs and heavy metal for large combustion plants (1.A.1.a)
  • Improvement of EF for waste incineration plants for 1990 (1.A.1.a)
  • Revision of SO2 emission factors (1.A.1.b)
  • Further comparison of inventory data with PRTR and ETS (1.A.1)
  • Calculation of a complete time series for liquid biomass use (1.A.4.a i)
  • Calculation of a complete time series for biogas use (1.A.4.c i)
