서울시 생물성 연소부문 온실가스-대기오염 통합 인벤토리 및 배출원단위분석

Publication Date Feb 28, 2015


Biomass burning is known to be one of the main sectors emitting greenhouse gases as well as air pollutants. Unfortunately, the inventory of biomass burning sector has not been established well. We estimated greenhouse gas (GHG) and air pollution (AP) integrated emissions from biomass burning sector in Seoul during year 2010. The data of GHG and AP emissions from biomass burning, classified into open burning, residential fireplace and wood stove, meat cooking, fires, and cremation, were obtained from Statistics Korea and Seoul City. Estimation methodologies and emission factors were gathered from reports and published literatures. Estimated GHG and AP integrated emissions during year 2010 were 3,867 tonCO2eq, and 2,320 tonAP, respectively. Major sources of GHG were forest fires (1,533 tonCO2eq) and waste open burning (1,466 tonCO2eq), while those of AP were meat cooking (1,240 tonAP) and fire incidence (907 tonAP). Total emissions by administrative district in Seoul, representing similar patterns in both GHG and AP, indicated that Seocho-gu and Gangseo-gu were the largest emitters whereas Jung-gu was the smallest emitter, ranged in 2~165 tonCO2eq and 0.1~8.31 tonAP. GHG emissions per km 2 showed different results from total emissions in that Gwanak-gu, Jungnang-gu, Gangdong-gu and Seodaemun-gu were the largest emitters, while Seocho-gu and Gangseo-gu were near-averaged emission districts, ranged in 0.2~ 21 tonCO2eq/km . However, AP emissions per km revealed relatively minor differences among districts, ranged in 2.3~6.1 tonAP...
